The X-77 body shape is unmistakable and I think it looks stunning in white.
This one's apparently all original and looks great! :wink2:

Speaking from experience, my X-77T (single pup tremolo) has a comfortable and smooth neck and takes you to your happy place very quickly. Hey it's a Vantage!
The only thing I'd change about mine is perhaps the colour, it's black.

So what's wrong with this one?
The same thing that seems to be afflicting Mats products here lately, the price!
CAD$625 :no:
No mention of a case neither.

One week later and no change.
The link he cites is for an Australian music store and the price shows there as $813.29 converted to CAD, BUT it also includes GST (goods & services tax)!

Not too realistic but I guess the seller is gonna hold out for that price! :look:

The good news: It's still available!
The bad news: It's still CAD$625

Seller is delusional methinks. :loon:

I must say, my Vantage Entertainer has the finest neck I have ever played. :love:

It's still available but the seller keeps relisting it every couple of weeks or so.
Still making me drool, just a little, but not at that price which remains at CAD$625. :seestars:

Of course that also means that the URL has changed again:

Well the seller continues to play musical chairs with the listing, but he seems to have finally got a taste of reality!

New Price: CAD$500 !
And of course, he's re-listed the darn thing so here's the latest URL:
https://www.kijiji.ca/v-view-details.html?adId=1692491109

He's doesn't do himself any favours by doing this. Anyone who might have been watching the original post with interest is left with a dead link next time they check. All he has to do is edit the orignal. He's his own worst enemy.
