This green logo is typical of early British-built Vox instruments, produced at the JMI plant in Dartford, Kent, circa 1962-67. These transfer logos are not at all hard wearing, (in fact UK guitars of this period regularly come up with no headstock markings at all - though some may never have been applied) and Vox did not have the capability for headstock inlays at the Dartford plant at this time. See also the model designation decal that was placed at the other end of the guitars headstock.

Any advise on warped neck (due to no truss rod) would be great!

Alan Selway Comment left 4th August 2015 12:12:54 I used to have a red Clubman II bass. It was my first bass, I bought it in 1975 but I don't have it now. I seem to remember measuring the scale at 28", maybe I'm mistaken? It had a coaxial connector in the side of the (thin laminate) body and the neck was very bent. I learned to play on that bass and I loved it. I loaned it to a "friend" so he could learn but never got it back.

Phil Comment left 6th September 2016 15:03:35 Burn the whole thing but save the pickups - they're wax potted and excellent - the rest is utter shite - no truss rod! Ply body. The only saving grace is that the guitar version was Gary Moore's first guitar - he once commented that the sheer hell and struggle of playing his Clubman made him a better player because it was so difficult to do anything on it. Having owned the guitar version I totally agree.
