    NCGD Vantek (Vantage) Telecaster

    Yes it's a New Cheap Guitar Day.

    Just picked up this oddball today. It's a Vantek Telecaster copy in very good shape. As far as I can tell it was made by Vantage in Korea in the 1980's? It needed a truss rod teak and some action adjustments. It's string thru the body with a nice D shaped neck. The guitar is extremely light which I enjoy. This will get new pickups for sure. Did I say it only cost me $99...used?

    It seems to keep to stay in tune pretty good but the electronics are crap. Small 500k pots and a really cheap 3-way switch. Really cheap pot metal bridge plate but it has the old brass barrel saddles which is nice. I think with a few simple mods and upgrades this will be a decent player. I may even "relic" it a little. Anybody else ever seen one of these before?

    Most recent project. Mighty Mite neck, Clearfork ash body, "Mary Kaye" white, added belly cut. Kinman Strat in the neck, SD antiquity humbucker in bridge, GFS 2-point added trem. Really like the GFS tremolo, which had the added bonus of being very competitively priced, shall we say.

    I just picked up this SX (Rondo) and Line 6 amp for $100

    It has MIM pickups, and a nice pearloid pickguard.

    Unfortunately someone has poorly relic'd the beautiful Surf Green. It looks good from a distance, and I think a new nut is in order.

    1. Blue partscaster of unknown province. Super quality body and neck. Pickups are a Kent Armstrong Vintage 5 in the neck, Duncan Broadcaster in bridge. They will be changed shortly to a set of Fezzter Oildale's along with new pots, cap and a 4 way switch, 2. #2 is my #1! USACG chambered mahogany body, USACG neck. Shown with a test set of Prima Delta Dust Devil pickups. It now sports a Lollar Low Wind Imperial in the neck (These pickups are staying put!) and a Harrison Wirtz custom wind in the bridge. Toneful, inspiring and toneful....did I mention tone? 14 years and still #1. #3 is a Nashville of all Fender parts. but not stock, so essentially a partscaster....a darn fine one at that!

    Old double bound solid ash body JB Player loaded with early version Fender Nocaster pickups, premium electronics with 4 way switch, skunk stripe 9.5" radius 1 piece maple neck with Grovers, single roller string tree, Dunlop 6105 frets, bone nut, top or rear loading bridge with 6 brass saddles. Got the guitar 15 years ago NOS for $160. It actually was fairly decent stock, but it's a real keeper with the mods I did.
