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.

Vintage Vox Spitfire Electric Guitar With Original Hard Shell Case

JASPER, TENNESSEE, 37347, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

Pictures pretty much show everything. This is a used players guitar, not mint, but very good as shown. Various small finish nicks, missing tremolo bar. Pickguard has shrunk and cracked (I think this is pretty typical of this model). Sounds and plays fine. All original parts including case. Case may be a bit musty. The guitar belonged from a friend and I have the story from the owner that this was owned by someone very famous, but have no proof to back it. I won't post the story on here, but will... more
