VOX MARK VI trardrop, 1964-67
in Italy by Eko, the tear-drop Vox model is one of the symbols of the '60s
beat era. But these are much more than "conversation-pieces"...
they are great guitars with a strong personality and a different sound.
The one you see here has all-original parts, tuners, knobs, pickups,
pickguard (with worn logo) and is finished in sunburst. Excellent
conditions, except for two small repairs clearly shown in the
pictures. As you can see here (headstock2),
two maple plugs have been inserted in the headstock side to stabilize a
laminate seam separation. It's a professional repair, very well-done, and
there was not a crack anyway so the headstock is 100% solid. The other
reapir is here (knobs):
the jack-socket was relocated on the guitar top and now it has been taken
back to its original position and the hole on the top has been plugged.
The guitar comes with an old hardshell case, but we don't know if it's
original or not.
