Rather than tampering with the stock electronics and diminishing the guitar's value I am selling it. The stock pickups are a near perfect copy of Dimarzio pickups, plenty of bite but very articulate. Sadly they don't have the the kind of over the top output that I like which is what my rig is geared for (Duncan Distortions). I have too many pics to post here so I added a link.

I have $415 in it. It is listed elsewhere for $465 so I can recover the PayPal fees (goods and shipping). I am willing to ship anywhere in the continental US just as long as I end up with $415 after fees.

I will box it up the next day or so and provide dimensions and weight. USPS, UPS or FedEx, your choice.

I am a little leery of international shipping but will. The same applies, I need to get $415 out of it after fees. Import duties may apply to the buyer. You can use this calculator to determine payment:

I knew I got a good deal when I picked it up. I watched quite a few bolt-neck Vantages like it go for $500 or better without case.

One thing I forgot to mention is the original warranty card is still in the case from when it was bought new. I am pretty sure it had only one owner before me. Stuff like this doesn't normally happen to me. I guess that's my dose of luck for the next decade. :-)

I wanted someone who appreciates it which is exactly how it worked out. All I wanted was what I had in it. I could have flogged it on Reverb (Regurge) for more but that's not my style.
