Ace, Super Ace, Consort, Soundcaster, Phantom and Phantom bass

1963 Vox 'Precision in Sound' brochure

The guitars shown here are the mid (Vox Ace and Super Ace), and higher end (Consort, Soundcaster and Phantom) solid bodies of the 1963 Vox range; there are some quite significant changes to the versions of most of these from the guitars in the 1962 Vox Choice of the Stars brochure, produced less than a year earlier. The one exception is the Phantom bass which uses the same image as the previous catalogue, although it too was updated around this time.

The Vox Ace and Super_Ace underwent a significant change, with a completely new body (universal; routed for three pickups), shorter neck, and white plastic-covered V2 pickups with exposed polepieces, rather than the chrome-covered V1 pickup. The bodies were not identical, but quite similar in style, to that of the Soundcaster). The Consort also changed in the same way, and in addition, losing its array of tone switches, and shown here with a teardrop-style headstock - gone by the 1964 catalogue.

The Soundcaster and Phantom guitars changed far less: their basic body shapes remained, however both were upgraded with V2 pickups. The previous catalogue had shown two Phantom versions (Phantom I and II), both with three V1 pickups, but the Phantom II also had three tone switches. This variation was no longer offered in 1963, although it is pictured leaning against an amplifier on the reverse side of this sheet here.

1967 Gold Bulldog C15N Jensen from Vox Kensington Bass Amp - Buzzes, Recone?

INDIANAPOLIS, INDIANA, 46220, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

$49

Up for auction is a gold Vox Bulldog C15N Jensen 15" speaker with a date code of 220713 which dates it to the 13th week of 1967. This was the standard speaker in the Vox Kensington bass amp. As you can see from the photos, the speaker frame has rust spots. The speaker also has a voice coil rub. I hooked it up to a low power receiver and it buzzed with the bass turned all the way up which went away with the bass all the way down. So it might still be usable if you don't play it loud and with a ... more

NEW!! Vox guitar vibrato arm mounting bracket Pivot Arm with black hex screw

MANHEIM, PENNSYLVANIA, 17545, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

$50

NEW!! Vox guitar vibrato arm mounting bracket pivot arm with black hex screw. Chrome plated. I had these custom made at a local machine shop here in the USA back in the 1990's. Only a few left and there won't be any more made since the machine shop has closed and I don't want to go through getting them made again. They were a pain in the butt to make and getting stuff chromed these days is expensive. This is the part that your vibrato arm mounts to and the spring sits up against. The original ... more
