Hello. I am working on my dad's 80s Vantage FV575 flying v. My dad took it apart years back to try and repaint it but over the years, parts have gone missing. All that's left is the pickups, tuning keys, body, knobs, and neck plate. I have a new pick guard for it but I need a new neck, bridge, and the strap holders. Can you guys help me either find individual parts, websites that sell parts, or a beaten up parts guitar. Thanks.

You know there is a Vantage forum, yes?

Finding a neck could be problematic, eh; you don't see too many complete FV575s, far less a neck but you never know - keep an eye out on the online auctions.

The TOM bridge and tailpiece can probably be sourced from Gotoh as they supplied the OEM one, I think - be sure you get the width measurement right if you irder one.

Every guitarist I would cross paths with would tell me that I should have a flashy guitar, whatever the latest fashion model was, and I used to say, 'Why? Mine works, doesn't it? It's a piece of wood and six strings, and it works.'
