Hollow-body electric acoustic guitars

In the beginning of the 1960s, JMI were primarily an electronics company; able to build amplifiers and simple solid-body electric guitars. But there was significant demand for semi-acoustic instruments, and Vox did not have the workers with the necessary skills create such instruments. So they outsourced construction. The majority of Vox hollow body guitars were made in Italy, by Crucianelli and Eko.

Vox Ultrasonic
As demand for guitars increased, Vox were unable to keep up with demand, especially for worldwide export. Vox and Eko set up a joint venture, with the US Vox distributor, the Thomas Organ company; the EME plant in Recanati, Italy, building Vox guitars and basses, primarily for the American Market. Guitars like the Vox Ultrasonic had built-in effects: fuzz, treble/bass boost, repeater; have a listen to some vox ultrasonic sound clips.

But as the decade came to an end, Vox were bought out, and a new family of Vox Giant guitars was born; with two semi acoustics, the VG6 and twelve string VG12.
