*Nokie Edwards (Precision Bass)

A troca por guitarras Mosrite ocorreu após a visita de Nokie à cidade de Bakersfield na Califórnia, Cidade do Legendário Buck Owens com quem já tocou como guitarrista no início da carreira. Lá conheceu o "Guitar Builder" Semie Mosley e a guitarra fabricada por ele (Joe Maphis Model), e após plugar no amplificador e tocar, escutou aquele som forte. Na época, as bobinas dos captadores da Stratocaster tinham 6.000 voltas e o da Mosrite 10.000 voltas. O grupo usou guitarras "customizadas" com 12.000 voltas.

E depois... Foram usadas Gibson e Fender também.

Em meados de 1990, a Fender Japan produziu o "Limited Edition The Ventures Signature Series", constituído por uma Jazzmaster, Stratocaster e Jazz Bass, com todas as especificações determinadas pelo grupo. Abaixo a foto do Catálogo da Fender Japan de 1998 onde consta também um Telecaster de Nokie Edwards Signature Model. (clique para o link do "Fender Japan Catalog 1998")
