Vox Scorpion

Solid body Vox electric guitar

Vox Scorpion electric guitar - from the Vox "precision in sound" catalogue, 1964

The Vox Scorpion was one of Vox's more experimental designs, and in 1964, was produced in small numbers. It was available as a six string or nine string guitar. Like many British-made Vox guitars, it was most likely named after a relatively new American jet aircraft, the Northrop F-89 Scorpion, and the body shape of the guitar does have a passing resemblance to the aircraft from above.

The following description comes from the 1964 Vox catalogue 'Precision in Sound' - which pictures the 9 string version.

A new addition to the Vox range with unique body design. First and second strings doubled (octaves). Third string doubled (unison). Fourth, fifth and sixth strings single, offering a complete new sound. Reinforced adjustable neck, with a curved rosewood fingerboard. 6 string version with tremolo also available.

This guitar was only produced in very small numbers, and examples are seldom seen today.
