For sale is my ultra-rare Vox Phantom VI (6) Special guitar with original case. This is the 1960's Vox Phantom Special VI, with built-in effects, the same model as used by Ian Curtis of Joy Division. The body finish is original not painted. There are a few small chips but overall looks stunning. See pics.
The bigsby tremolo is original with spring and tremolo arm. All the buttons and effects work, the pick up knob is a little crackly/noisy until you find the sweet spot. The neck plays fantastic and is in excellent condition with original decal. (Missing a few fret markers)
It has the following effects buttons on the scratch plate:
This really is rare to find this vox guitar in this condition with the original case. I have had this guitar for years and never seen another one in this condition with the vox original phantom shaped case. FROM 'THE VOX SHOWROOM' WEBSITE:
The "Phantom VI Special."
Like the standard Phantom, the Phantom VI Special featured three single coil pickups, a rotary three position pickup selector, and a vibrato arm. The Phantom VI Special added six onboard battery powered effects operated by push buttons mounted to the pick guard. These buttons actuated the Treble Boost, Bass Boost, Top Boost, Mid Boost, Fuzz and Repeat circuits. A second three position rotary switch toggled between three mid boost frequencies. Additional rotary controls adjusted the Fuzz Sustain (level), Repeat speed, and volume while another enabled a "E" reference tone for tuning your guitar. The volume control also served as an on/off switch.
The neck on this Phantom VI Special was probably made for Vox by Stuart Darkins, a UK based furmiture maker that acted as a guitar part subcontractor for JMI. UK made necks had a truss rod cover located on the head stock. Italian (Eko) necks had the truss rod adjustment located at the pick guard.
