I got this last year, but since so quiet here, will be posting every I got in the last few years... :wink:

This one is a funny story. Saw an ad with a whole kit, amp, pedal board guitar and casse.

This ad:

Noticed that the guitar was a Vantage but wasnt certain which model. contacted the seller to ask if he would sell just the guitar. He replied, Certainly, just give me $100 and I`ll throw in the case and stand with it ! :o :o :o

So here is my new 790 !!! :hyper:

The 790 is Mahogany, neck and body.

the VP-795 is Maple center and maple neck, body wings are Ash.

Build material completely different.
