Vox advertisement (1966) Breakaway Acoustic / Electric

British Vox advert placed by JMI in April 1966. Vox had launched a signature bass for Rolling Stone Bill Wyman - the Wyman Bass. It was a semi-acoustic version of the teardrop-shaped Mark IV, promoted alongside six and twelve string guitar versions, the Spitfire Mk. VI and XII. These were UK-produced guitars, for the UK market, not to be confused with the solid-body Vox Spitfire produced for export to America.

The Wyman bass was priced at £73 10S, the Spitfire Mk.VI £84, the Spitfire Mk.XII £94 10S

Only look-lively, get ahead VOX can break with set traditions so completely and still retain the desirable qualities that have made the name world famous. The new semi-acoustic teardrop shape as featured by Bill Wyman and other leading guitarists is catching on fast.
