  • Let's talk about Courtney Love's Vista Venus

    This is one ugly guitar! Looks like a squashed strat.

    But is one nice player! It's a squier but made in Japan. Bound rosewood neck with lacquer. Fantastic pickups [single coil and humbucker] with matching headstock and the very cool Vista Series logo.

    I love the simplicity of it too. Just one volume knob, no tone knob. It's simple but it rocks!

    I have 2, black and surf green.

    Regardless of what you think about Courtney, this is one fine guitar.

      I am surprised they havent reissued them, either from the Fender Pawn Shop series,

      or using the Squier brand.

      I own a black Squier Venus -- the 6-string version.  

      Bought it at Mars Music (when they existed).

    Isince Kurt wrote her first record, I wouldn't be surprised if he designed her guitar too.

      the Squier Venus XII was a beautiful looking and sounding guitar. I wish Squier would come out with a new 12-string.

      Uhh... she didn't even know Kurt when she made her first record. I've never understood the hate Courtney gets. She's a pretty decent musician, and she was known long before she met Kurt. Yeah, she's a gigantic mess, and she seems like a bit of a bitch, but the same can be said about most musicians, especially the ones that have large fanbases.


      I've always liked the Venus guitars, though. I've never played one, but they have a cool look to them.

Working...
