Congrats. My VE-450 Entertainer (ES-336 copy, but with pointier horns) is one of my prize possessions. Just a great guitar (after a few mods).

That makes for a sweet birthday. Congrats. There's a few CS series Arias out there on Kijiji these days that catch my eye. Some itch remains to fill a gap from a traded away a FV-575 some years ago.

The CS series guitar are amazing. I have a CS-350 and a CS-400

The Entertainers are one of my favorite series, great guitars!
I sure love mine. I sold a lot of Vantages in the early 80s (especially ones like you posted above) and they were consistently great guitars.

I've just put the VE-450 back into rotation in the last week or so. I'm basically running through my rack while I sort out and program the Kemper. So everything's getting it's chance.

You have an enviable collection of Japanese guitars, Monsieur 99.

I really love the quality of these guitars, the mid 70s and 80s belong to the Japan manufacturers hands down.

I rotate mine also... change them every couple of months... Its always fun to rediscover old flames !
