Vintage Bruno Ventura Matsumoku Japanese Made Model 5260 12 String Jumbo Acoustic Dreadnaught Guitar.
Big Huge Body 12 String With Big Booming Volume & Great Tone.
It Could Use A New Set Of Strings & Neck Adjustment, As There
Is A Very Slight Bow. I Adjusted The Truss Rod When The Strings Were Loosened. I'd Suggest To Cut The String Slots In The Saddle Deeper To Bring The Action Down A Little Lower. The Neck Was Perfectly Straight Until I Tightened The Strings & Tuned It To D Tuning. So....I Just Did Not Tighten The Truss Rod Enough. I Have Always Tuned My Acoustic 12 Strings Down A Whole Step To D, To Relieve Alot Of String Tension On The Neck & Bridge. There Are Some Scuffs, Scratches, Dents, Dings, & A Hole In The Lower Front Bout A Little Larger than The Diameter Of A Quarter. (See Photos) I'm Sure Someone Out The Could Patch The Hole From The Inside Of The Body Where It Would Be Less Noticable. I've Had A Lot Of Fun Playing This One & Never Really Noticed Any Change In Tone
Or Playability. I Will Also Be Listing Other 12 String Acoustics From My Collection Including A Vintage Italian Made Eko, German Made Hoyer & Framus, Japanese Made Pan, Trump, Crown, USA Made Wurlitzer & 
Many Projects That I just Do Not Have The Time To Restore.
The Last Photo Shows Some Of The Vintage 6 & 12 String Guitars That Is Part Of My
Collection!!  I Will Be Listing And Selling All Of Them!!
This 12 String Acoustic Guitar, Is One Of About 30 That
I Will Be Listing Over The Next Few Weeks. Most Of Them
Are Vintage Japanese Made, Although Some Are From The
USA, Korea, Germany, Italy, And Indonesia.
