Welcome to the site. Vs are rare, this is the only one thats been up lately. I dont think any of us here would pay the asking price.

Keep plugging and you may find one here.

Vantage makes a Flying V model, I think the model number is something like FV-575. Has a different (Vantage) shaped headstock, and is often seen in opaque (non see-through) finishes. They are pretty common on eBay, and usually sell for less than the Electra Wedge. I would say that from a quality standpoint the Vantages are probably superior, as they were all made by Matsumoku (Flying Wedges were most likely not made by Mat) have MMK pickups and better sealed tuners. Good luck in your search, your patience will be rewarded.

8) Looks like a nice one and very very similar to my Wedge except for the pickups and selector switch. I have several Aria guitars and they are built very well and play great. :up:
