1977 Ventura Howard Roberts Fusion 2453 Jazz Guitar in Excellent Vintage used condition WoW must see this beauty SOLD OUT!|
SOLD OUT: Here is a great Jazz Guitar its the Famous Howard Roberts fusion 2453 Jazz box that was hand crafted crafted in Japan threw Fujigen Gakki factory which is the Ibanez family they received their top line guitars from Terada factory…. Like Ibanez Musician line, Artists, Gerogen Benson GB line to of Japan same made the L-5 for Ibanez and a few others… equivalent build quality with all the top features as seen herein.
Ventura’s top of the line PRIME law suit era guitar.
** Perhaps even more beautiful the the original they have emulated don’t you think. Of course this model manufacture was discontinued some years ago and so its numbers are seen far less than the more common s175 copy's they made #00000000’s of those
but not these ,,, they were done in much smaller numbers
and are known to be hand built..
Really a very Beautifu guitar and is pretty much an exact mid 1960s Gibson Howard Roberts Fusion model copy
lawsuit era this is a 2453 model top of the line built in Japan nearly 40 years ago. AS SEEN in pics its all figured and AAA flamed woods top quality materials fit & Finish detail is excellent.
Amazing hand crafted workmanship fit and masterful thin Poly finish still is in excellent vintage condition.
Original super 70's type pickup (Ibanez issue) it sounds warm and clean very touch sensitive like Paf’s
just beautiful tone. L-5 appointments beautiful Tailpiece and has its famous gold Star tuners (ibanez issue)
still doing a great job, original Tortious multi bound pickguard is good too someone had a small control pot
mounted and that was properly professionally removed repaired filled and it as a result the guard looks great again all binding on this pick guard are excellent many of these 40+ year old pick guards in this HR shape you see the bindings pulling loose often more easily than other shapes you see bound and this guards bindings are all good and not going anywhere.
much better than average the rosewood fingerboard looks beautiful with very little play wear
Re: the frets are excellent
they are now slick with the fret edge binding also a top refined refined optional touch
and so Gibson has nothing on this beauty!
Plays real nicely easily played with a medium slim taper C neck
with a nut width of 1-11/16ths,
with a full Gibson 25" scale length
has the correct H fingerboard inlays for Howard Roberts.
Gold looks good but does show some tarnish or wear as seen
and looks all vintage beautiful with genuine patina.
It's finish is called Antique Violin Sunburst and it shows off its beautiful Flamed figured woods
and patina gold hardware really a great combination as you can see,
this is a professional grade vintage Japanese well crafted Jazz instrument
and has been set up with flat wound strings she's ready to swing.
Have a good look this one is worth your serious consideration.
WoW an amazing beauty with all the play-ability and beauty
and all the tone of the big guys
Gibby Howard Roberts
