Vantage VS695 Series guitars & Basses
The Vantage VS695 Series of solid body guitars and basses was created to provide the musician with wide-range tonal variations in an extremely
playable and solidly constructed instrument. The natural sound of these instruments is enhanced by hot, custom-engineered Vantage humbucking
pickups. The Vantage VS695 guitar features a sophisticated electronic circuit with a coil tap switch for instant conversion to a thinner, biting
sound and a phase switch for the characteristic “out of phase” sound favored by many of today’s players. The Vantage VS695B Series bass is
designed for the bass player who wants a natural “look”, plenty of bottom and topp-end clarity and definition. The Vantage VS695 Series guitars
and basses are available in natural wood, non-gloss matte finish for understated good looks.
