Hello all!

Just wanted to say Thank You! Ever since i've been able to make, at least, semi-sound decisions in life (age 27 :blink:) i've considered myself a Gibson man. But that all changed about 5 months ago. Somehow i stumbled upon a "lawsuit era" LP labeled "rare", "matsumoku". Having no clue whatsoever i decided to find out what was so "rare" about this "matsumoku". And that led me here! An absolute wealth of information you all have accumulated! Bravo!
Long story short...... i have since acquired an '81 VSH-455 (i think it plays better than my early 70's 325! Booya!) and an '81 VP-710 bass. Not sure how it happened but Vantage seems to have emerged as my favorite matsumoku build. For now anyway.
Again, thank you!

Welcome, we're glad you're here!
I grew up a Fender man. I now have 1 Fender and 1 G&L but the rest are Matsumoku of some sort. A VSH-455 has been on my list for some time.
Post some pics if you can, we love pics. :love:

Certainly glad to be here!

Trying to upload pics just not sure how to, i'm sure they need to be resized. Could you recommend a site to do so?
....and there's a 455 on ebay right now, fyi. Seems like it's priced a bit high, i got mine for $750, and doesn't have the stripes. Maybe they just threw a 455 trc on a 445? Not sure.

Welcome aboard!!!

Pics do have to be resized. Max 80K because we are severely limited on disk space for the site.
