Description

Now here's a rare find - a late 1960's Vox Wyman Bass finished in cherry! We typically see these in sunburst, and this one features some gorgeous flame figuring in the back of the body, making it the perfect addition to any vintage aficionado's collection - especially if you're a Stones fan! Fully inspected & set up ready to play straight out of the case.

Cosmetic Condition: Pretty good shape actually for being over 50 years old - various nicks, chips, dents & dings; scratches, light weather checking & some finish wear. Overall the bass has a wonderful, true vintage look to it with a gorgeous patina.

Neck: Super skinny maple neck with cream binding & black side-dots. Rosewood fingerboard with mother of pearl dot inlays. Frets are in great shape with practically no wear. Open-gear nickel tuners are in perfect working condition. 1 7/16" nut width with zero fret; 30" scale length. Neck is straight & truss rod works fine.

Body: Teardrop shape, hollow maple body in cherry finish. Bound top & back with bound F-hole. The back shows off some really beautiful flame figuring. Top-loading bridge with two adjustable saddles & original bridge cover. Chrome "mirror" pickguard with Vox logo. The original back pad is a bit tattered & missing its vinyl cover, but all the snaps are there. Bass weighs 6 lbs 8.7 oz.

Electronics: Original single coils with white covers & chrome bezels. Bridge - 5.30K ohms; Neck - 5.37K ohms. Master volume & tone controls with 3-way selector switch. All electronics are in perfect working condition.

Case: Original hardshell case included.
