Vox Phantom IV Model Solid Body Electric Bass Guitar, made in Italy, serial # 206547, white polyester finish, hardwood body, laminated maple neck with ebony fingerboard, original grey hard shell case. The Phantoms were first made at JMI in Dartford, Kent in the early ’60’s but by 1965 the majority were built by the Eko guitar factory in Recanti, Italy. The Phantom IV bass is one of Vox’s most imposing instruments; unlike the short-scale, very thin-necked layout of most of the company’s basses, these are built with a full 34″ scale on a big wide neck closely based on the Fender Precision. The two 4-pole pickups provide a wide range of tonal options; there are not a lot of 1960’s basses that provide this combination of practical playability and wicked cool looks! It comes complete with the original Vox oblong hard case. The Phantom IV is garage rock classic as used in the 1960’s by “Fang” Volk of Paul Revere and the Raiders and the 1980’s Michael Jay of the Fuzztones, among others! Overall length is 49 in. (124.5 cm.), 12 3/8 in. (31.4 cm.) width, and 1 5/8 in. (4.1 cm.) in depth, measured at side of rim. Scale length is 34 in. (864 mm.). Width of nut is 1 3/4 in. (44 mm.). Overall very good condition showing normal signs of use. Most notably there is finish checking as seen in the photos and the pickguard has a few chips missing near a few holes du to shrinkage of the PG material. All original hardware down to the last screw. There are no mods or repairs, hardly any fret or play wear. This striking white Phantom is a finer player than many of these and better preserved than most! Excellent + Condition.
