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.

Vox V2 pickup, US part number 09-701-0 (Mid 1960s white plastic single coil with exposed polepieces)

This single coil pickup was used in a number of UK-produced (JMI) models; all but the earliest example of the Vox Ace, Super Ace and Consort, Phantom and Mark VI (teardrop) guitars; generally from mid/late 1963 onwards. It was also fitted to newer UK models produced after this time, such as the New Escort and Marauder guitars.

When mounted, it can be quite difficult to differentiate these British pickups from the Italian equivalent (below), however from the rear they are completely different, with the UK V2 having a rounded trangular shaped black plastic underside, as opposed to the purely rectangular Italian pickup.
