Not quite sure where to put this but a "Quest by Vantage" logo on a head stock would make it OK here, I guess.
Found another write-up in an old Vintage Guitar issue which may shed some light on this strange line.

Isn't Michael Wright the doyen of Japanese guitars?! Nicely written piece about a rather mysterious brand-name - fascinating!

Thanks for posting it, Barry!

Glad you liked it.
Michael Wright does seem to know an awful lot about what went on in Japan during that magical period of the 80's when MIJ guitars were at their peak, both in quality, and weird innovations.

Je vais bien, merci.

Nope, no interest in Facebook, or Twitter either. Too many tracking and privacy issues for moi.
