Vantage 818GDT
made in korea
24 cases
maple neck
Micro HSS (splittable H)
Sector 5 positions
1 volume 2 tones
pink floyd
Basswood body maple table


the highlight of this guitar is its sleeve. very comfortable and very fast. very well built and especially well done.
stuck between strat and ibanez jpm in its form, it is basically a very nice guitar. not too heavy and good ergonomics.
guitar very versatile because of its micro configuration.
brief ... it's pretty good overall.


the single pickups are not bad and is even better than a guitar is expected to price. against the dual mic is below. too garish and ill-defined. (Changed on mine)


we see a lot of vantage in occas really not too expensive, rarely 818, but other previous versions. I had the opportunity to try out a stick and this was very good on all its models. vantage of the 90's are generally good case. the 70's and 80's are also excellent guitar, but you will need to review the rate has increased significantly. they have become collector's items (the craze made in japan), as the VS series for example.

The +:
the handle at any point
the violin

the -:
the humbucker

Vantage 818GDT
Error my guitar is a Vantage 818GBT
Apparently Old style SAMICK Valley Art
she looks like a (Please Jackkkk):
made in Korea
24 frets, 2 single 1 double pickups (no info on their models vantage y'as written above)
Floyd Rose tremolo GOLD (c y'as written licensed but not really on a bridge replaced dja)
5-way switch 1 volume knob and two buttons pitched treble
a handle about 40mm D pais, rosewood fingerboard? ; Practice for my big hands
Bolt, but sustain CARREMENT reduced (4A7 his second no effect depending on whether or not I waves)


Pleasant to handle my large hands and my crooked fingers
(Although C-shaped ca t would be better puet)
ESG a little at the 12th fret (too srr)
Access in acute without too much problem except 24me box or position the hand impose +
the size of the hoop is a little difficult for big fingers inexperienced
ergonomic shape strat nice, but heavy
we just get great sounds, but sometimes you get them


A versatile mid-range, from blues to heavy metal or even a little shouting it is a nice (but fo push the amp or have a Vamp)
it sounds great VACUUM! Indeed, having a test for beginners ibanez vacuum to compare, I noticed it sounded better (not to sustain the course)
--- Paste the ear on the body for an IDE you will see that the difference between some models is striking.
With the experience I think it should be thanks to the wood, but I do not know the reconnatre
level violin, I know nothing except that all mcaniques (floyd cmpris) seem to be in tin or brass coated with a varnish dor (fragile koi), but they are qd even a lot of tuning that I saw the circus they are subjected.
The microphones should not argue, however much it sounds like she qd (after cleaning and polishing adjustable ropes with lemon juice).
why the sound come out of this guitar sound bluesy little closer, but I care far from being an expert, just a scratch but then level trs trs medium)


I've had about 2 or 3 years
I love this passage is heavy mtal (acute aggressive) to a more "fenderien" at least the possibility to move from one world to another with little effect.
I had virtually no other model essay before, it's my guitar every Premire
and I found good value for money.
for the era I found only one shop on the internet who actually sold at the price indicated by the Seller or for more 3000F

with experience I would not buy, but I fantasize about a JEM (sign steeve vai) or a white '67 reissue Flyng V

Vantage 818GDT
24 frets. Good!
Microphones with a lower average cache "Vantage" above.
Bridge Floyd Rose bridges with a screw .... No sound, poor quality, but like the level and tuning.
5-way switch, volume knob and 2 tone.
The channel is typed Gibson, though not as big. Button correctly pleasant finish ok, Violin more than reasonable.
guitar balanced, easy to play sitting or standing.


As said above, the violin is nice. The economy seems to have been made on the electronic and floyd.

Like all good agreement, the harmonics are in place, in short, this guitar has a sound reproduction means more but can, by changing the pickups and rewiring, become a pleasant companion.


The sounds have the advantage of introducing us to the versatility of a guitar in HB 1 and 2 SC

After a split of the original HB, we come to get his vintage Fender typed.

The microphones simply fulfill their office properly.

By working the body, you get a good guitar in the end.


A good 5 / 10 home. a good 8 / 10 after retouching.
Although it is set very nice to play. The violin is really very good and, apart from a weight a little excessive, nothing moves.
She deserves a change of pickups, certainly, but by setting a good height and a selector for the double splitter, we have a good palette. Not to say, this is not the same settings that guitar after I purchased

Vantage 818GDT
It all adds just a few t dit.Je dtails, the body is mahogany with a plaque in the Saddle Gibson.L flame as a whole because it is INTERESTED amlang concepts Fender, Gibson Ibanez.Fabrication Corenne and 90s.


Channel Gibson type but thinner which is a reasonable weight and balance plus.Guitare.
Versatility as HSS configuration.


Almost everything can play the "crystalline" saturation agressive.Les sounds are not bad but I personally do not like the humbucker, I find it too aggressive, too aigu.Bien RULES this guitar becomes int Ress.


So a mid-range guitar can become rare INTERESTED aficionados and collectors. Today it would cost much more CHRE.
