hey! i just recently bought a Ventura Bruno V-12. Its a pretty old school guitar and everything about it is fine except for the tuners - on two of them the second you start to tighten them they pop up if that makes any sense. anyway i have no idea how to go about replacing them. any advice would help thanks

It's hard to tell if they're good or not because there isn't a description. You've got a decent guitar, you'd be happy with good tuners.. How much are you willing to spend?

i just got some epiphone ones on ebay for 16 with shipping. they look like they should fit and thats why i got them.. hope theyre okay

On the subject of tuners, you really have to do your homework. Waverly would have you believe that they are the best, simply because of their cost. Arguably, they are the most traditional and ornate, but they are not necessarily the best value. In my opinion, this would be the order of tuners I would recommend to a customer (separated by sealed and open-back :

Sealed:
Gotoh 510 (sized by what fits the headstock best)
Gotoh Sealed (oval, Schaller, or keystone knobs)
Grover Rotomatics (always my recommendation for electrics and occasionally for acoustics)

Open-Back:
Grover Sta-Tites
Waverly
Sincerely, Chad.

They should do for you -- if they fit. You can always go with something better down the road. When was that ventura made? Around 1970 they were making pretty good guitars.

I have no idea what it might be worth, but I'm pretty sure it's got a solid spruce top -- must sound really nice after 30 years. I'd say, though, that you got an incredible deal if it's in good shape aside from the tuners. It sparked my curiosity because I played in the Army and our guitarist played one and swore by it. I'd never seen one before that and never since. I do think you got an unusual and interesting quality guitar worth playing -- Congrats!
