 About the original Vox Mark III

 

Tom Jennings, the man behind Vox, wanted to build a guitar line that would compete with American made instruments. He turned to a British furniture builder for assistance and later set up an agreement with several Italian accordion and guitar manufacturers.
 
Jennings company, JMI, came two guitars with unique shapes; The Mk Series, commonly called The Teardrop and The Phantom. Both were based on Fender instruments.
 
Vox approached Jones with a white two pickup Mk model and asked him to promote it. Brian's guitar was built in the Dartmouth British factory and it's shape is slightly different than the guitars made in Italy by Eko Industries. Jones' instrument is elongated when compared with subsequent models.
 
 

 

It's two pickup layout and switch plate seem to slightly mirror Fender's Telecaster. The six-on-a-side headstock has a slight Fender appearance as well. The Vox name appears parallel to the bottom of the headstock. The six pole-piece pickups with white covers could be mistaken for Fender pickups if not for the rectangular shape and metal bases.The bridge and saddle were quite similar to a Fender hard tail Stratocaster tail-piece. Later models incorporated a Bigsby vibrato tail-piece and a more Gibson style bridge.The guitars back side came with a round protective, snap-on pad, similar to the ones found on some Gretsch guitars. 
 
Brian Jones' guitar was sold at an auction a Southeby's for $3200 in 1984 by the Hard Rock Cafe. It was placed in the New York City Hard Rock for many years and it now reside safely in the Cafe's London Vault.
 
During the years Eko built the Vox Mk Series they produced not just the the Mark III, but the Mark VI (two pickups with a Bigsby), Mark IX (9 strings) and Mark XII (twelve strings).

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!!!
