Help identify a Vantage Electric

Recommended Posts

Hi, can anyone help me identify this Vantage I have.

It has no model numbers, just a "Made in Korea" sticker and a serial number (E728338 on a blank neck plate)

It has HSS pickups and three 3 way toggle switches (also missing a locking nut)

I would love to know what the model is and when it was built.

Cheers, John

The body looks to be part of the Avenger series, but I can't come across a catalog later then the mid 80's. Yours is 87/88, and made in Korea after Uncle Matt moved.

I have one of these same color, same 3 little switches but the middle pick up and neck pick up are the stacked humbuckers I guess you would call them. Phenomenal guitar very loud!!

I think those Vantage guitars were made in Korea by Samick.
