Cosmetic Condition:  Super cool vintage vibe - various nicks, chips, dents & dings; surface scratches & light finish checking.  Overall the guitar has a great look to it, is very resonant & plays exceptionally well.  A classic 60's 12-string made in Italy by Vox!

Neck:  Maple neck with ebony fingerboard & pearloid dot inlays.  Frets show some light wear, but have plenty of life in them.  Vox-logo nickel tuners in perfect working condition.  1 3/4" nut width with zero fret; 25" scale length.  Neck is straight & truss rod works fine.

Body:  Five-sided, contoured solidbody finished in black.  3-ply white pickguard has aged nicely into a cream color. It has a few chips, but for the most part is in good shape & the Vox Phantom XII logo is very clear.  Tremolo tailpiece with six-saddle adjustable bridge.  The mute pad has deteriorated.  Guitar weighs 6 lbs 14.5 oz.

Pickups:  Original single coils that deliver clear, bell-like tones.  Bridge - 5.66K ohms; Middle - 5.87K ohms; Neck - 7.00K ohms.  Master volume with tow tone controls - one each for the middle & bridge pickups; 3-way selector switch.  All electronics are in perfect working condition.
