Vox Stroller

Solid bodied electric guitar

Vox Stroller (LG50 style)

1961 Vox Stroller electric guitar 1963 Vox Stroller electric guitar

The Stroller was one of Vox's first guitars produced in the UK, from 1961, with the two-pickup Vox Shadow. It was a very simple, entry level instrument: one pickup at the bridge, one volume and tone control and a simple sycamore neck made by Stuart Darkins; a Shoeburyness furniture company. The design is based on the Guyatone (sometimes branded Antoria) LG50 guitar, at the time played by Hank Marvin, of the Shadows. There were some minor differences between the earliest LG50 style Strollers; have a closer look at a two LG50-style Strollers, from 1961 and 1963. Really early examples have the Vox 50s/60s single coil, changing to the V1 single coil perhaps at the beginning of 1963.

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

By mid-1963 the guitar had evolved; a new body shape, perhaps reminiscent of Shadows guitarist Hank Marvins red Fender Stratocaster. The Hardware was broadly similar to earlier Strollers, with one Vox V1 pickup, a volume and tone control, and the same pressed-metal tailpiece and rosewood bridge. The neck was made by G-plan of Hemel Hempstead; still without adjustable truss rod.

Jennings gave the Stroller a UK model reference number 238, although examples imported into America, by the US distributor Thomas Organ Co. gave it number V-2-1, or V201.

This is how the instrument was described in the 1964 Vox catalogue 'Precision in Sound'.

Fine quality rhythm solid electric guitar. High grade VOX strings and single pick-up. Separate tone and volume controls. Single side machine heads. reinforced, polished neckwith hardwood fingerboard. Adjustable rosewood bridge. Finished in red or white high gloss polyester.

Have a look at the 1966 Vox Stroller parts list produced by Thomas Organ Co. for US Vox dealers.
