  • Vox teardrop

    Hello all,

    Just picked up an old pearl white Vox tear drop guitar with 3 single coils, stop tail (no vibrato) and bolt on maple neck with rosewood fingerboard. It sounds and plays fine, although the output is low, maybe 70 - 75 % of a Fender single coil. I searched the internet and found surprisingly little info on Vox guitars. Anybody have any info?

    Thanx,

    -jan

            Two of my heroes are Brian Jones and Pete Kember AKA Sonic Boom of Spacemen 3, who uses a Vox Starstreamer.

              Now that you have a Vox Teardrop, are you going to be looking for one of those Vox guitars that's shaped like a lop-sided pentagon? I think they're pretty cool, too.

                Yeah, those pentagon shaped guitars're great looking. I think they're the Phantom model.

                  I always thought they looked like a coffin.

                            So far the Vox jangles well. And it's easier to play while seated then, say, a Flying V.
