My primary bass for the past 25 years has been a Vantage Performer. Unfortunately, I don't remember the model from when I purchased it around '81 and I'm hoping to one day find this missing piece of the puzzle. I found some stuff on the web that has photos of Vantage Performer basses around that time but none of them are as loaded with features as mine. I know mine is all original because it was purchased new from Chuck Levin's music in Wheaton, MD where they had it on display in one of their showcases at the time. Since I have never seen another like it and the fact that it was at Chuck's which, because of their reputation, was able to carry some limited run pieces, I'm wondering if mine was either a special order piece or a limited edition. Does anyone have any information about the Vantage Performer basses in the very early 80's? I love the bass and will never sell it, but it would be so nice to have one of the key missing pieces to this mystery --- the model number!
