With 'Beatlemania' and the 'British Invasion' firmly underway, Vox needed a US distributor for its products. Enter the Thomas Organ Company. This 1965 Vox catalog was the first issued by the Thomas Organ company for the US market, and contained both Vox guitars and Vox amplifiers. It is just a fold out sheet of paper, rather than a series of pages, as the layout here might imply. Dimensions 11" x 5 3/4" folded, 17" x 22" open.
This was most likely printed in the middle or second half of 1965. It features a few Italian-made guitars, as well as a lot of British made ones (most of the solid bodies). In contrast, the next catalog features almost exclusively Italian instruments. The numerous artists shown endorsing the brand, once again are primarily British (The Beatles, The Stones, The Shadows) but a few US garage bands get in too (Standells, Sir Douglas Quintet)
