Vox Black Plastic Control Knob

Vox > Vox parts > Control knobs > JMI black control knob

Vox black plastic control knob, part number 09-703-0, used for volume and tone controls on JMI-made Vox guitars from 1962 until at least 1965 - typically on three-pickup guitars such as the Dominator, later versions of the Shadow, the Super Ace and Apache. These are all guitars made in the United Kingdom; Italian Vox guitars didn't use them. Later examples of these guitars were generally fitted with the metal control knobs.

Vox (JMI) black plastic control knob 3

Vox black plastic control fitted to a 1964 Vox Shadow. The controls actual function are not straight forward for this guitar - basically a master volume, and separate tone controls for the middle and neck pickups. Read more, and listen to soundclips of the different pickups here.
