This is an amazing guitar!
It is very beautiful, very, very well built and very versatile.
It was built in Korea but designed by an American guitar icon, Rich Lasner.
This guy really knows what he`s
But for some strange reason the vox guitars seem not to be very successfull.
I don`t get it.
So I was able to buy it pretty cheaply in 2012.
(not fat unfortunately but very nice)
(slim, and it "bends comfortably around your belly)
trans amber/ transparent finish
638 mm scale
an amazing aluminum wraparound bridge
(...they should sell it as a retrofit item!)
the most beautiful tuners ever
master volume, master tone
two 3-way mini switches, one for each pickup`s voice
a 3-way pickup selector
(Just like my GirlBrand guitar!)
2 COAXE Pickups.
These pickups are very special
because they are hum-free P-90 style singlecoils that offer 3 sounds each:
transparent, full and fat
They are rather hot and sound goooood!
As far as I know this is a real new thing
and I think it works very well.
There is a hum-bucking dummy coil around the coil
inside the pickup. That inner coil is tapped twice in order to produce three sounds...
There is absolutely NOTHING wrong with this guitar!
The contrary is true: Everything is GREAT!
except that I miss a treble bleed cap on the volume pot and would have prefered a different toggle location.
and (no real issues)
The gutiar is so light and thin (which is good!)
that it tends to be slightly neck heavy strapped on. Not a real problem, though!
the neck is very middle-of-the road. I wish they had a fat neck option, too.
The wraparound bridge is the very best I ever encountered. But I would love to have a Duesenberg Bigsby-style vibrato option. (Remember: A Duesenberg whammy is an improved Bigsby)
The wiring could use two more mini switches!
Yes, affecting both pickups when in the middle position only to define the parallel sound independently.
That way you`d get three differently "preset preset-sounds" from the pickup toggle.
Go and buy one of these!
There are semi-hollow and singlecut options, too!
(No, I don`t get payed by Vox guitars!)
