Vantage 118JT

I have bought new Vantage 118JT guitar.
Any attempts to find some info about this guitar failed?
I was not even able to find factory web page!
Is it true that it is not produced anymore?
Please, help!

Re: Vantage website is here

http://www.samick.co.kr/samick998/englishhtml/products/van_gitr/eg/v_electric_index.htm
Vantage is a child company of Samick and they produce 50% of all the guitars in the world. Samick was given the OEM authority to produce guitars for Fender, Gibson, Epiphone, etc. that's why you see lots of "copy" guitars bea the name 'samick'. i have given you the website, so.. hope it helps.

I am very familiar with the Aria Mach-1 copy of Gibson ES-175. Is that the guitar you bought & at what price? Did it come with the hard shell case?

EKO

I just bought a used EKO 12 string guitar model J 56, can anybody give me a little history on this. It sounds great to me. I was told it was made in the 60's Thanking you in advance Frank

Well Frank, for what it is worth, back in the early seventies I owned an EKO 12-string and loved it. She was my first guitar, I learned to play on six strings and in six months went to the full twelve. If yours is anything like mine it was a beast with great tone and very loud. The neck block inside the bell looked like a hunk of 4x4. It was practically indestructable. On the way to a party it once jumped out of the back of a pick-up truck on a bumpy dirt road without the protection of a case and it hit the ground head first. It didn't even get knocked out of tune. If I'm not mistaken it is an Italian product. I would love to own one again. I hope you enjoy yours.

Frank's EKO

Right Frank.First thing about your EKO.HANG ON TO IT.It will serve you well and Eko's are fast becoming cult items. The J56 was made between 1952 and 1957 when it was up gunned to become a Ranger Model so yours is between 45 and 50 years old.Dont worry if your mates rib you about it. It is the flagship workhorse of the guitar world and virtually bombproof to take busking or just jamming around> Get a few Jesse Fuller records and you'll see what a 12 is really capable of.Good Luck Man.From:- The Doctor

Re: EKO Semi-acoustic guitar

Many thanks

I have just aquired a 1967 EKO Ranger 12 string. Would anybody have an idea of a price?

Re: EKO ranger

: I have just aquired a 1967 EKO Ranger 12 string. Would anybody have an idea of a price?

I have just purchased an EKO Ranger for $273. It sounds great and has a pick-up fitted over the sound hole. I would like to find out if they came from the factory that way, or if the pick-up was installed after market.

Re: EKO ranger

: I have just aquired a 1967 EKO Ranger 12 string. Would anybody have an idea of a price?
I am looking at one to buy. The guy at the music store wants $500. He said he thinks they are selling it to cheap.

Re: EKO ranger

Brandoni Guitars in Wembley, north London, are offering "as new" Eko Ranger 12s for £245 (about $350). They bought up the old Eko stock from the factory when it closed. See http://www.brandoniguitars.co.uk.

Re: EKO ranger

I am following one on ebay uk which is currently selling for£23.53, I think you can buy them quite cheaply.

Re: EKO ranger

I've seen reasonable ones go on E-Bay for about £145.00, others with problems for £50.00 odd. I've just bought a mint condition one for £299.00 from a private dealer.

Yamaha CG-160 Acoustic Guitar

I recently acquired a Yamaha CG-160 acoustic guitar, cannot identify it as to value and age--can't find a cg series listed anywhere. It is a Yamaha Nippon Gakki, which I assume indicates it was an older instrument. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks! Dale

Conrad LP copy

Anyone know who makes this guitar it says Conrad looks like a les paul..any help would be appreciated...tia

Re: Conrad LP copy

I have just bought a Conrad copy of the hollow bodied es350 copy myself. a little research shows it is a japanese import, the Conrad name was trademarked to the american importers. All the looking i have done puts a pretty low value on it, 200 to 350 but the thing shounds good. And that is what i was after. I have considered ripping off the neck and finding an epiphone or Gibson neck for it, and swapping the pick ups for some humbuckers , but it do sound good, so, hmm, why mess with it. (i did have to tighten all the pots which are pretty small and i suspect not of very great quality) the head stock on mine is a pretty ugly shape, and it has all this weird reddish laminated plastic throughout, but it still sounds good, heheh,
The Conrad trademark was a brand name used by U.S. importers David Wexler and Company of Chicago, Illinois. The Conrad product line consisted of 6- and 12-string acoustic guitars, thinline hollowbody electrics, solid body electric guitars and basses, mandolins, and banjos. Conrad instruments were produced by Kasuga International (Kasuga and Tokai USA, Inc.), and featured good quality designs specifically based on popular American designs.

K 12 String

I recently bought a second hand 12 string guitar, it's a fine example of good workmanship, it's made by K and that's all I know, it has crushed pearl insets, my question is, "is K any good, I think it is because of this lovely guitar, I would just like to know if it was a good buy as I can't seem to find anything to do with K on the net".

Flat top guitar

Hello, and thanks for your interesting pages. A good friend just bought a nice playing guitar, a large light colored, dark backed "flat top", guitar, and is curious as to who "Jantz" is. That name is at the tuning end - looks like their "Logo", where you would find, "Martin", or "Gibson", on other guitars. Can you help me find some info on such a company ?
Thanks very much. Dick Turner, at: kooby@penn.com
