1983 Vantage FV-575 V Black

Excellent condition featuring V shaped Japanese ash body, two original Vantage Hi-Output humbucking pickups, two volume controls and one tone control with one original knob and two replacement knobs, three way pickup selector switch with white plastic switch tip, stop tailpiece and Schaller style tune-o-matic bridge with six individual adjustable steel saddles and two height adjusting thumb wheels, large pointed multi-ply white plastic pickguard, bolt on maple neck, rosewood fingerboard with pearloid dot inlays starting at the third fret, bone nut, Vantage peghead shape, Vantage and V logo on the peghead face, three per side individual Vantage sealed tuning machines with V logo, four bolt neck fastening plate with Vantage V, serial number and Made in Japan engravings, two metal strap buttons, chrome plated metal hardware, and black finish throughout. 

This 1983 Vantage FV-575 is in very good vintage cosmetic condition showing signs of play wear throughout including pick scratches, a few nicks and dings and some wear around the body edges. There is scratching and slight finish damage on the back of the neck at the third fret (see photos), but nothing that can be felt while playing. The neck profile is that of a very comfortable, medium chunky, rounded C shape with a 1 11/16” nut width. This neck feels great in the hand! The frets show only slight signs of play wear and have tons of life left. This guitar has been professionally set up and plays great up and down the fingerboard with low action and good intonation. This Vantage sounds killer plugged in - both pickups scream and with enough gain dialed in you can summon the Gods of power metal. These pickups have a very tight, powerful response that will suit any style of rock and will surely set you on the path of a righteous riff lord. These vintage Japanese made Vantage instruments are well made and just plain bitchin. This one is the coolest one that I’ve encountered in some time. A gem of a guitar shipped out safely and promptly from our little shop here in Clarksville, Tennessee, to your front door.
