Vox Phantom XII For Sale

 

This Vox Phantom XII For Sale will be 100% handmade by our highly skilled craftsman! 

 

George Harrison innovated and popularized the use of the Vox Phantom XII electric guitar on such Beatle hits as "You Can't Do That," "I Call Your Name," and "A Hard Day's Night." George played a Rickenbacker 360/12. Vox recognized the sales potential of the twelve string electric and introduced twelve string versions of both the Phantom and Teardrop guitars in 1964. Here is the history of the Vox Phantom XII For Sale.

 

After introducing a series of student grade guitars in 1961, Vox started the development of professional grade instruments. 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 Vox Phantom VI guitar, and the Vox Phantom XII For Sale followed the Phantom VI. Vox also incorporated their signature "Phantom" body style into the Stereo Phantom XII and the V251 Guitar Organ.

 

The earlest verisons of the Phantom guitars and basses were assembled in the Vox plant in Dartford Kent using parts subcontracted from various European suppliers. Some of these Vox Phantom guitars were equipped with the excellent Eko neck that incorporated an aluminum double T bar reinforcing channel in addition to an adjustable truss rod. Three single coil pickups with individual pole pieces were standard. The Eko (Italian) produced version of the Vox Phantom XII For Sale had a padded snap on back cushion, the UK version did not. The Phantom XII also included a Bigsby style vibrato arm, a very unusual feature on a twelve string guitar.

 

The Vox Phantom XII For Sale was first offered to the US market in the 1966, it was described as follows: "Unique Phantom 12-string design; ebony finger board; nickel-silver frets; exclusive 2-way string damper; 6 individual string bridges, true spring action vibrato." The 1966 US Vox price list indicated that the retail price of the Mark XII guitar was $379.90 USD. Adjusting the 1966 price for inflation, the Vox Phantom XII For Sale would retail today for about $2619 USD. But it's lucky for you that it's available from us, and for a reasonable price.
