A modified version of the image of the Shadows shown here was used in a Vox advertisement appearing in Beat Monthly magazine, issue #3, dated July 1963. Guitarist Hank Marvin is brought into the foreground with Bruce Welch, Brian Bennett and Brian Locking behind; a line-up of the band in existance between April 1962 (when Locking replaced Jet Harris) and October 1963 (when he left to be replaced by John Rostill). Hank was behind several developments at Vox, and his name is applied to a number of accessories: from straps to tremolos (see here).
The band is pictured with their Fender guitars and Vox amplifiers; they did not regularly use Vox guitars, despite the claim on here that the Shadows were amongst the stars that 'feature' Vox guitars.
