"Very cool looking guitar!! I replaced the pickups but it’s still an acquired taste. Strange Italian made guitar. Get your early Tom Petty on with this one!"
-Chris Shifett

After introducing a series of student grade guitars in 1961, Vox started the development of professional grade instruments. Vox determined that "copy cat" guitar designs for their professional models would be unacceptable. Their new professional guitar models would need to have body designs that were unique and iconic, rendering them immediately recognizable as a Vox instrument. To help accomplish this styling goal, Vox entered into a contract with the London Design Centre in 1962 to propose unconventional yet attractive guitar body shapes for the new Vox professional series guitars. The result of these efforts was the "coffin" shaped guitar.

Made in Italy, Black finish with maple neck with a medium-round profile, 1 5/8” wide nut, ebony fretboard, 9.5” radius, and dot inlays

Vox tuners, three single-coils, three-way pickup selector switch, master volume control and independent volume controls.

The body is clean for its age with just a few chips and dings here and there. Some buckle rash on the back with a couple photographed scuffs where the body meets the neck. The back and sides are also looking good overall with only light scratches from buckle rash and some light checking. The neck and headstock are both smooth and glossy with hardly a mark on either. This Vox Phantom is looking great!

The strings are low, play great, and ring out clearly across the board. This badboy weighs 7lbs.

Lightly used condition direct from the personal studio and tour collection of Chris. Was no longer being used and is now available for you on Reverb.com!
