VOX | CATALOGS | PRECISION IN SOUND (1963, JMI) | PANEL 4

Vox Symphonic Bass, Hawaiian Steel, Jumbo, Victor and "Bouzouki"

1963 Vox 'Precision in Sound' brochure

Catalogue scan from the 1963 JMI-produced Precision in Sound catalogue. This page shows five very different instruments in the 1963 Vox line, and none for which Vox is especially known. The Symphonic bass was Vox's version of the Fender Precision; JMI had been distributing Fender guitars just prior to the date of this brochure - the discontinuation perhaps in part due to copies like this.

The Jumbo acoustic is the only purely acoustic instrument in this catalogue, although several others were available; the Victor was the only semi acoustic. These were built by Vic Da Costa, a luthier employed by Vox. A JMI price lists from late 1964 and early 1965 also list a Vox Victor bass.

The "Bouzouki" - note the quotation marks - was the name given to Vox's twelve string guitar. It was, with six pairs of strings; so had more than the Greek bouzouki, which had either three or four pairs of strings. It was "tunable in accordance with requirements".

The final instrument was one that was very popular in late 1950s and very early 1960s Britain, but the Hawaiian Steel could not keep up once the guitar boom of the mid sixties took hold.
