Vox pickup (Late 1950s/early 1960s chrome single coil)

These were the very first pickups used by Vox, replaced by the V1 below in the early 1960s. They appeared on the SB1, SB2 and first versions of the Vox Stroller, Vox Shadow, Vox Duotone and possibly others. They are slightly wider than the Vox V1 pickups, and interestingly made to imperial measurements (compared to the metric dimensions of the V1) perhaps suggesting a different manufacturer. Accurately dating the guitars on which they were fitted is very difficult, but they were possibly used from the late 1950s up until early 1963, probably appearing on lower-end Vox's after the V1 was already introduced.

Vox V1 pickup, US part number 09-101-0 (Early 1960s chrome single coil)

These were some of Vox's earliest pickups, and were fitted to all the early solid-body models: Vox Stroller, Vox Shadow, Vox Clubman and some early Vox Phantom guitars. They were also fitted to early solid-body basses (see Vox bass pickups). British-made, with a simple single coil, and no polepieces. The presence of the VOX logo was not universal, some guitars had one or more plain pickups.

It was also fitted to newer UK models produced after this time, such as the New Escort and Marauder guitars.
