Geez, quicker than the mail in the UK!!

Especially as we have a dyslectic postman! Keeps putting all the mail in the wrong houses, can't even read the bloody numbers. He's an import from an eastern land... Laughing

What a lovely-looking guitar. I like the symmetrical body shape. It looks quite wide; does it sit higher when resting on your knee?†
I must admit I don't know anything about Vantage, nor do I know much about all the other brand names from this era, but I'd like to learn more. Is there a post that has already covered this topic, by any chance?

A good place to start your education is over at the Matsumoku information pages: CLICK HERE
Vantage was primarily a Canadian private label but is found world wide.

If you need more in depth discussion you'll find lots in the Forums: CLICK HERE
Scroll down for specific brands, including Vantage. Wink

As for the size no, its quite small, not wide at all. More along the lines of an SG. Very comfortable to play.
