Vantage VW180, ser.8155. Bought new by me, my longest standing friend. never a perfect finish but ALWAYS a warm sound. Still got 'er, not parting with 'er. Also had a burgundy 'les paul' copy by Vantage, last seen in custody of semi-estranged daughter, love 'em both. '180 plays1 a bit like a tank but my fault cos we live in a basement. Steve-O

Great site! I have a very strange Vantage acoustic electric guitar. The sound hole is laser cut, which was supposed to reduce around 75% of the feedback. It also has an eq with volume, high, mid, and low bands and a mid sweep knob, a sound cut button and a battery check button. The pickup is built into the bridge. I have not found another example of this guitar anywhere and am wondering what model it is? I got it around 1995 or ‘96. I would love to email you pictures to see if you know where I can look to find more info. Thanks, again, awesome site!

I found this site while searching for information about a guitar my wife bought from a coworker about ten years ago for $75. Now we know it is a VLP-550. I'll be sending photos soon! Does anyone know where to get a replacement switch knob? Ours disintegrated years ago. Will one from a Gibson fit? Thanks again!

Hello to all of you Vantage lovers, users, collectors and so on !!

I must first say thank you for all the kind words in this guestbook. It means a lot to me.

I do not do this for business reasons. I'm just a fan of the brand, and this is just a hobby I have.

I receive many emails and regret to say, not everyone gets a reply in a reasonable time.

Many people send me pictures of their guitars so I can build this site even bigger. Just keep doing it, because we build this together piece by piece.

Keep on practice and stay safe.

just stumbled over that site... Owning a VLP-520 as I found out over the pictures. You stated that it started production in 1981. Funny enough the serial number states 004 at the beginning, so early 80's. I bought it around '82. Let me know if you want some pictures...

And... Brill site... Thanks for sharing all these infos...

Thanks so much for having this website. I have had my '81 VS-600R since about '82. Love it love it love it. My brother and fellow band member has been trying to talk me into using a strat instead but all agree now that the Vantage sounds and plays better. Most people have never even heard of these guitars, but everyone I've talked with that has owned one positively loved it. Great website and the only one I've found that has good information.

Proud owner of a 1980 VP-790 Demon. She was my first guitar ever purchased from a wall in a local music shop back in 1992. Now she hangs on my wall with a balance of others that I've acquired over time, but I still love the way she feels in my hands every time I pick her up! Thank you so much for this site! It is amazing!

Thanks for this great website! I remember seeing a Vantage VA-912 at Continental Music in Ottawa in the early 80's. Couldn't afford that great guitar then. Now in BC I found one on Craigslist in Nov 2019 and then a left handed VP-795 in Jan 2020. Both are solid and great players, although I have converted the VP-795 to play right handed, moving the saddles while leaving the bridge in the left handed position and moving the strap the other horn.

1980 800VA Artist I believe - early serial number ( 80024 ) if I'm interpreting the dating information correctly. Plays wonderfully - really incredible sustain and tone - this one isn't going anywhere ! Is there a way to post a few photos ?

Who would have guess there was a website for my Vantage guitar. Purchased my VT60 in early 1980's from the now defunct Manny's Music in New York City. Still have it.

I have the 12 String 1980 VA-912 electric. I bought it new in 1982 from a music store in Medicine Hat, Alberta. It is still my favourite guitar and a higher quality build than my Gibson LP or Fender Strat. For several years I played the 912 as 6 string, but these days it is back in it's original 12 string configuration and I still gig it.

First thank you so much for this weight.
I was drawn to my Vantage guitar in a pawnshop.
I've tried researching it an is fits somewhere in between any information I can find.
It's a thin line 6 string acoustic electric. Beautiful transparent blue finish.
I can't find a matching model on the internet.
Does anyone have information ?
It is a .... VST 33 CE TBL...
I can't find a VST that is a 33 or anything TBL??
I take it CE is Canadian Electrical certification ?

Happy Newyear everybody and thanks so much for visiting my webpage about Vantage guitars.

And thanks a lot to all of you guys who are sending me questions, comments and pictures of your guitars. Without you this page would have been missing a hole lot of information.

Keep sending me the good stuff and I try to put it all together ...and keep practicing!!

I was given both my Vantage VP-750 Ghosts by a friend of mine John Powell. I love both of these guitars dearly. The sound and tone of these Matsumoku guitars is simply amazing, with sustain for days. Neither of mine have serial numbers. 1 has different pickups installed after it suffered damage in a house fire. The other is as stock as the day it left the Matsumoku factory, with the exception being a replaced set of tuners made by Gibson, the same tuners as on the '64 The Paul'. Thank you so much for your website and the work you've put into it. This truly is a gold mine of information. I'm emailing you pictures of both my Ghosts, Please feel free to use them on the website.

Thanks again

My dad bought the VW180 acoustic in the late 70s and never played it much. He hid it away in the attic for decades until one day, as a curious child, I found it and absolutely fell in love with it. I've been playing it for years now and it has followed me from when I was just beginning to learning how to play the guitar to the many gigs my band and I have preformed. I have so many great memories with this guitar and it'll always be my favourite.
