Thank you to the site owner, Johan, for compiling all this in-depth information. Especially the history of the Matsumoku operation. A huge part of guitar history, virtually hidden until recently. If you found the info on this site useful, then send him a donation. It's worth it to have this resource.

I just picked up an Avenger AV-310 natural for next to nothing. (they had no idea what they had) It's all original and just needs a nut and a good cleaning. Can't wait to get it rockin again!

Today I picked up a Vantage electric bass, but I don't have much information about it. What I know is that it is a 5-string model, the body is sunburst red, has 3 knobs, and has a "MADE IN INDONESIA" label, 24 frets, and a screw-on neck.

I bought a Vantage Avenger in the early eighties. Not sure which model it was .Similar to the AV 310 natural finish but with 2 Humbuckers, master tone , volume and 3 way switch. Coil split, hard tail bridge and brass nut. Still have this guitar after 40 years .Recently refurbished still plays well.

I've got a small shop & sold Vantage in the 90's. 2 things I still have and don't see listed. 1- A 6 string bass, may be a 960, but have to check, AND 2- a jumbo acoustic VJA-2CEQ. I also have 2 friends who I sold different versions of the same models to. No serial # on acoustic--no internal stickers or #'s. sticker w/place of origin gone. sticker with model # getting hard to read. Purchased around 2000.

I have a Vantage guitar with made in Korea below the serial number. I found this guitar while cleaning out an attic. Some of the numbers appear to be worn off. Initially I believed it to be VS 1. I realized today, about a year later, it looks like maybe a lower case x before the V and the 1 is probably a 6, possibly a G. Serial number is 94010055. This guitar has blown my mind. Put new strings on it as soon as I got home and it instantly became the guitar I play everyday. Would like to know a little more about it....

I have an Avenger 310 that I got used in Dec. 1981 from Sam Ash in New Haven, CT. Still plays like a dream- low action, no buzzing, frets in reasonably good shape. I've done bad things to this guitar over the years but now it's back in it's original configuration. A little worse for wear with 4 holes drilled in various parts of the body but it's the giving tree of guitars for me. I've learned so much from this thing that I don't think I'll ever let it go. Probably worth next to nothing anyway lol!
s/n 1020135 (earliest one I've ever seen), 22 frets, truss rod adjustment where neck meets the body.

In 1985 my dad was on his first Mediterranean tour in the US navy. He bought an acoustic guitar in France (I think) and now it sits in my home in Dallas and will go to my child next. Not sure what model it is, gonna try to figure that out later today after work.

Have a 03xxxxx serial numbered black, LP type. Have installed cheap Duncan Designed pickups, after market tuners and this weird brass bridge from Korea.

Paid $200 for this and worth every penny. This thing must weigh 10lbs ! The whole body vibrates when played. Only previously experienced this with a $2500 Schecter Custom!

I just got a 718dt1, I’ve been playing guitar for a few months now, but I swap and trade them as well, so I’ve had about 20 different brands and styles.. if this one didn’t buzz so much, it would be hands down the best guitar I’ve played yet.. the neck is slim and fits my hand just right, the super strat body is slim and light and has extra contour and fits me perfect, the Floyd rose looks and sounds fan friggen tastic.. it is a stained and or lacquered wood grain, it is bright red with a shiny wet gloss effect.. I am satisfied with it, for now..

So, this is my Invader 1, body and hardware original. I changed the pup for a SD distortion and put in a split coil DiMarzio pot. Has been my main axe for the Weird Terror since the first recording, Last I did was of a more cosmetic approach. (I wish I knew how to post pictures here. 😛 )

Hi, I have a Vantage VC-100 which I purchased at a music shop in Kingsford in 1984. Since then have never seen another one. Friends and family who have played it have all loved the sound.

My Mom gave me $1000 bucks for graduating high school in 1983. Went to Brian Guitars to buy a new bass. Wasn't sure if I wanted a Rick or a Fender P. Tried out both of them and I love the sound of both of those, so when I picked up the Vantage VP825B (active) I was blown away. I seemed to be able to get very close to both sounds with that one bass. It played like a dream too. It was $500 cheaper than the Ric and $300 cheaper than the Fender. It was a no brainer. I still have it and it's gonna be 40 next year. Never have to adjust the neck, never goes out of tune. It's an amazing instrument!! Pretty much the only bass I've played or ever needed. I did finally get a Ric, but my Vantage holds its own next to it and is still my go to. It was also really cool to see Lemmy playing a Vantage in the Fun Facts below!!

Recently bought a Vantage 225B-1 bass at my local pawn shop for $50. What a great bass. Best money I've spent in a long time.

I was a newbie back then when I bought my guitar in a local guitar store's garage sale. I just thought it was beautiful and inexpensive. I didn't know how rare it was. I've been combing through the net for the exact model of it ever since.

I have finally found out it's a Vantage VDL 21A (dark green metallic)
