Description

A rather rare & unique Vox teardrop bass made in England. It's a bit difficult to pinpoint the exact model, but it looks like a cross between a Mark IV & a Wyman Bass. In fact, since it's an early UK model, it could very well be a prototype, since the serial number is etched into the bottom of the fingerboard as well as on the back of the headstock. Regardless, it's super cool & a totally rad player with great tone & dynamics. Professionally set up & ready to play straight out of the case.

Cosmetic Condition: Good honest play wear with an ultra cool, true vintage vibe - various nicks, chips, dents & dings; scratches, weather checking & some finish wear. Overall the bass has a great feel to it with a nice patina.

Neck: Slender profile maple neck with nicely aged cream binding & black side-dots. Ebony fingerboard with pearloid dot inlays. The serial number is pressed into the 22nd fret. Frets are in great shape with hardly any wear. Double string trees & open-back nickel tuners in good working condition. The tuners are a bit rusty, but function fine. 1 11/16" nut width with zero fret; 30" scale length. Neck is straight & truss rod works fine.

Body: Double-bound, teardrop shaped, hollowbody with single F-hole. Thick, clear plexi tailpiece with metal bridge & adjustable saddles. Chrome "mirror" pickguard with white Vox logo. Bass weighs 6 lbs 5.9 oz.

Electronics: Dual single-coil bass pickups both missing their white covers. Dual volume & master tone controls with 3-way selector switch. All electronics are in good working condition.

Case: Vintage hardshell case included.
