Phantom Bass Guitar Sale

 

 

 

Few bass guitars have become so iconic that they are immediately associated with the celebrity that played them. When one sees a Hofner 500/1 violin bass, Paul McCartney comes to mind. A Vox Teardrop bass suggests Bill Wyman of the Rolling Stones. The white Phantom Bass is indelibly connected to Phil "Fang" Volk of Paul Revere and the Raiders. Phil Volk strengthened his tie to the Phantom Bass guitar by taping his nickname, "Fang," to the back side of his bass. Phil often flipped the Phantom bass guitar over to expose his nickname to the audience. 

 

The unique "coffin" shaped Phantom body style was developed for Vox in 1961 by the London Design Centre and the Phantom Bass Guitar Sale was originally produced by Vox in the UK. A later version was manufactured in Italy for Vox by Eko. Phil Volk played the UK version. The Phantom Bass featured two single coil pickups with four pole pieces. A rotary switch was used for pickup selection. A single volume and tone control were also included. The Phantom Bass Guitar was described as follows: "Rugged and powerful solid body in striking Phantom design; fast neck with ebony fingerboard; two husky, 4-pole bass pick-ups; adjustable bridge for low action control; fast action pick-up selector switch; polyester finish in choice of colors." 

 

Phil actually didn't like the Phantom bass but he agreed to play it due to the Raiders' endorsement agreement with Vox. In a recent interview, Phil said, "The Phantom Bass Guitar was awful. The neck was as big as a two by four. If you look at some pictures you'll see that I put a Fender Precision neck on it. I had to have it custom fitted into the slot where the neck goes. And sure enough, after doing that, I could play the thing, and it really had a good feel to it. If you go to Seattle and go to the Experience Music Project Museum -- that Phantom Bass Guitar is hanging there. And it has the Fender neck on it!"

 

The 1966 US Vox price list states that the retail price of the Phantom Bass Guitar was $329.90 USD. Adjusted to today's dollars it would be $2195. But it's lucky for you that it's available from us, and for a reasonable price.
