Vox guitar and bass catalogs

Original brochures etc released by JMI and Thomas Organ co, 1960s-1970s

The name Vox has appeared on a numerous guitars made by different companies, primarily JMI in the UK, and Crucianelli, Eko, and EME (for the American market) in Italy, but also some late sixties/early 1970s Japanese guitars. 1960s Vox guitar catalogs, brochures and other printed publicity were produced by JMI (Jennings Musical Industries) in the UK (and, briefly, Vox Sound Limited), whilst American publicity was produced by the Thomas Organ company. These catalogs represent different periods of Vox's history, and advertising in different geographical regions; once production started at the EME factory, Vox guitars sold in Britain where not the same Vox guitars being sold in the US.
