This is in a solid condition at a very fair price. owner and player get it before its gone dropped price trying to afford a banjo Removing once that banjo is sold.

if you want a case for a fraction of the price I can add one. enquire for more details about case options. 

Around 3000 of these were made in Texas by Bob Murrell and MCI music from the 60's to the 80's using Japanese import bodies (like this Ventura V-1400) and filling them with their Goitrogen electronics 
This guitar was made in Japan's famed Matsumoku factory and features a full 17" body with laminate maple top, back and sides.  This was Ventura's top of the line offering in the 1960s and the quality and craftsmanship really shows! This is a Lawsuit copy of the Gibson Barnie Kessel signature model Japanese/American crafted 

It BUCKS- I believe its all original- only thing possible not original would be the knobs possible.
pickups are the gold plated -Goitrogen electronics that they filled them with they sound killer.
tail piece original, bridge original, missing pickguard and trust rod cover.

iv had it set up with the Luthier a Balls to the wall PROFESSINAL set up job low clean fast even action. IT plays. 
truss rod is perfect functions as should. neck is straight checked and set. its coming with a great set up ready to play. This Neck is slim its a real slim comfy neck I have small hands I get along with it well. 
gives me a lot of euphoria its a damn decent guitar I feel.

its in overall great shape ill start with the best parts easiest to describe parts.
the back is 9/10 maybe some minor starch's but great.
top has some deep finish cracks 3 deep finish cracks but overall great.
1 mistaken drilled hole at factory at the upper left neck pup.
most damage over the time is on the sides were the binding connects Lots of small binding issues.
Fretboard has been treated and cared for well  9/10 frets are also good back of neck is pretty clean.
Headstock has a scuff on the back minor stuff there. its over all real good with minor cosmetic stuff.
I think the neck finish cracking is simply from rocking/ bending the neck I don't think there was a break.
nothing affects playability its all cosmetic.   

shipping- I have packaging supplies I'm confident it will get there as described. 
open to purchasing case at buyers expensive. Consider adding a case. I will find you a deal on a used clean quality case for around half the price of its value. you'll get a deal ill get peace of mind shipping. consider it. 

Feel free to reach out with questions picture request whatever it may be thanks for reading.
