The Vox V1 pickup was very widely used throughout the 1960s, from late 1960 right through to the company's demise in the UK in 1967. It was a simple, but highly effective design. The bassplate is made from pressed aluminium. Compare this to the very earliest pickup used by Vox here - the coil and magnet arrangement is broadly similar, however the bassplate/mounting tabs are constructed quite differently. The pickup bass plate is 100mm long, with a distance between mounting holes of 88mm. This is a really simple pickup: a single coil, wrapped in waxed cloth, around a central magnet. The chrome cover just pushes on. The bassplate holes are threaded for the mounting screws; the springs act as spacers between the bassplate and scratchplate. Note the engraved VOX logo that adorned many (but by no means all) of the chrome covers that JMI used on UK Vox guitars.

As mentioned, this unit was very widely used, both on Vox guitars and Vox basses: Ace, Clubman, Shadow, Stroller, Duotone, Consort, Phantom - and many more. Some of these guitars (Shadow, Stroller, Clubman) used these pickups throughout their years of production; others (Consort, Ace, Super Ace, etc) were upgraded to the Vox V2 around 1963.
