Hey all, new member here and looking for some info...

I have a Vantage 832GDT made in Korea strat style SSH guitar. I bought it used awhile back and did a nice refurb on it. It has a Floyd Rose locking tremelo and a coil tap for the HB.

I can not find a single word about it anywhere on the net.

It actually is a pretty decent player, and with the HB split, it has a very banjoey kind of sound to it.

Pics were taken prior to refurbishing it.

Hoping someone can shed some light.

Hi Rick, welcome!

I'm afraid you won't find infos on your guitar here! Most of this boards members share an interest for japanese guitars, made by Matsumoku. There is only little knowledge about the samick (korean) Vantage guitars. All we know, is that this production started in 1990, and ended in the late ninetees, around 97/98.

Whether japanese or korea, we all here love too see pictures of guitars.
Nice guitar you've got! Thanks for sharing the pics!


All vantage-branded guitars were lower-priced instruments aimed at the beginner-to-intermediate market. It has no interest to collectors and very little demand among players! (
