VOX

MARK IV

MODEL V224

1966

SN:  228580

I am a fervent fan of VOX guitars, amps, and keyboards, and those musicians who played them and own a lot of them in my personal collection.

My favorite VOX guitars were from the PHANTOM Series which included the VOX PHANTOM MARK III, aka “Teardrop”, guitars.

Here is background on the “Teardrop”:

“As Vox grew, Jennings continued to experiment with new guitar models. One of the most famous is the Vox Teardrop, which Jennings said was inspired by a lute. This new Vox model was the third in the Phantom series, and was appropriately named the Vox Phantom Mark III, although, to this day, it is more commonly referred to as the Teardrop. The very first Teardrops had two pickups, and were hand made by Bennett and Wilson at the Dartford factory. According to Kelly, Brian Jones of the Rolling Stones did not receive the first Vox Teardrop guitar built. A pair of Vox Teardrop instruments—a guitar and bass—debuted in January of 1964, and Jones didn’t receive his famous white Teardrop until mid 1964. Soon after, he was given a 12-string version. Jones’ use of the Teardrop with the Rolling Stones made the guitar one of the most sought after and recognizable of all Vox guitars.”

Next to the MARK III guitar, more popularly known as the “Brian Jones Teardrop”, my favorite was the MARK IV aka “The Teardrop” bass.

This is a fine example of the VOX MARK IV guitar from that important time period in the history of VOX.

It is in Very Good condition showing signs of being played for almost 50 years with dents, scraps, dings, scratches, etc. Electronically it works great.

If you are a VOX Collector, this is a “must have” guitar.

Special Conditions

MY TRY IT OUT POLICY.

Understanding the normal hesitation of buying a guitar without first playing it, I want to make sure these guitars make you happy. To accomplish that, I want you to try them for 72 hours (three days). Play them, hold them, walk around with them on your back, sleep with then-whatever it takes for you to make sure these are the ones for you. During that time, you can return them for a full refund of your payment price (but of course they need to be treated well while you have them, as I expect you will) less shipping cost and you must pay the cost to ship it back to us.

If one arrives damaged, please let me know immediately by email. Be sure to hold onto all packing material and the box. I will contact the shipper for an inspection. Remember that this can take up to a couple of weeks but I will rush it along.

Minor problems. If there is a problem with one of the guitars when it arrives, e.g., loose wires etc. then I will work with you to get it repaired by someone in your area.
