About the original Vox Phantom XII

 

 

Vox Phantom XII Model 12 String Solid Body Electric Guitar (1965), made in Italy, black polyester finish, pine body; maple neck with ebony fingerboard, black hard shell case.

 

This very interesting Phantom XII is one of the earliest of the Italian-made Vox instruments, with serial number from the first series and a neck more like the original English JMI design than the subsequent Eko-made version. Sounds and plays well, a great piece of '60's guitar cool.

Overall length is 41 3/4 in. (106 cm.), 11 in. (27.9 cm.) across at the widest point, and 1 5/8 in. (4.1 cm.) in depth, measured at side of rim. Scale length is 25 in. (635 mm.). Width of nut is 1 3/4 in. (44 mm.). All original except missing the vibrato handle and spring. Moderate typical Vox checking to the body finish but overall not a lot of wear. A cool example of one of the iconic Vox designs. Excellent Condition.

If you are a fan of 60's British Rock, and Tony Hicks in particular, then you already know the influence that Vox had on the development of rock as we know it. This is really a unique instrument! And many famous guitarists prefer to use the guitar.

It is worth mentioning that the hardware and pickups we select are Wilkinson(Wilkinson Hardware and Pickups instead of the original ones are included in the price $395.00). We have to admit that Wilkinson hardware and pickups are not as good as the original ones. But they are more attractive in quality and price, saving much money for our customers. Most of our customers reflected the Wilkinson are beyond their imagination- stable and reliable enough!

 

 

Of course! If you insist on the original pickups, and we also can find them on the market, and can afford it. We are pleasant to install the original pickups for your guitars. But the price will be much higher than guitars with Willinson pickups. Be prepared!!!

Except the copies of guitars from famous players, most of the guitars that we build are custom-made based on the customers’ needs. There are so many different options and variables that it doesn’t make sense to have a standardized order form. The best way to go about obtaining this information is for you to contact us and let us know what it is that you’re looking for. We can discuss these options and figure out what is best for you. Your business is important to us and we want to provide you with the best customer service we are capable of. We want this to be the best guitar-buying experience you’ve ever had.


And please, don’t be shy if have any questions about our guitar. And don't be afraid to bring us troubles. Our customer service staff and other workers are pleasant to exchange with our customers, as they can learn new knowledge and get some exercise from the process
