The Vox Marauder was one of the last solid body electric guitars produced in the United Kingdom by JMI-owned Vox, aimed primarily at the UK market. There was a simple passive version, the Marauder, and the Marauder Special with built-in effects. There was no Italian equivalent to these guitars.
The guitar was designed in the UK by long-time JMI employee, Bob Pearson, however necks, bodies and scratchplates were produced in Italy, for assembly in the UK. Production started in April 1967, but ended with all other Vox UK guitar production in September 1968.
