A friend just scored a Japanese Matsumoku Vantage guitar for ... $20, with a tiny Berhinger amp. So let's say $10 for the guitar ! ! ! Guy never played guitar but wants to learn, so he figured, why not buy this POS. He showed it to me but I didn't recognise the name, until I Googled it. http://www.vantage-guitars.com/models/index.htm The closest looking model I could find is the Avenger AV-315. But his is HSS, it has a 5 way Fenderish toggle and one volume one tone. Fretboard is Rosewood, not Maple. The guitar has been neglected, botched paint job, cracked pickguard, broken jack plate. Tremolo arm is missing and the whole thing is a mess. He'll start by stripping the body to see what it's made of and probably oil finish it. He's really a tinkerer and good with his hands. I'll do the set up. If it turns out to be a beast, I might trade him for a tamer guitar ... if he wants to. Here's a photo of the same exact guitar I found after searching a while. Anybody know anything about these guitars ?
