There were two versions of the Vox Bulldog. Thomas Organ were selling a three-pickup Italian-made version with vibrato, listed at least as early as 1966 as their second most expensive solid body (after the Phantom XII stereo). It was a solid-body, with Mosrite styling and three single coil pickups. It was dropped from their price lists before summer '68, when Vox updated their range with new electronic (with effects) instruments.
Then, around 1970 a two-pickup, non-vibrato, model was shown in the "Giant Sounds" UK Vox catalogue. Still Mosrite shaped, and with the same ebony neck, although it is not clear where these guitars were actually manufactured. It may be, just like the early Vox's, that these were assebled from parts sourced from multiple locations.
