Early Vox Guitars
The first Vox guitars were produced in 1961 and it did not take long for Vox to make its mark in guitar history. In late 1962, Vox introduced what seemed at the time to be a totally unconventional instrument, the Vox Phantom Guitar. With its unusual offset trapezoid body, the Phantom soon became the chosen instrument of many groups of the era, including the Hollies and the Dave Clark Five.
Soon after, a guitar that was originally called the Phantom MK III was
introduced, but because of its rounder “lute” like shape, it and later variants
were often referred to as the Teardrop.
