Vox is a musical equipment manufacturer which is most famous for making the Vox AC30 guitar amplifier, the Vox electric organ, and a series of innovative but commercially unsuccessful electric guitars and bass guitars. Founded in Kent, England, Vox has been owned by the Japanese electronics firm Korg since 1992. Vox's first electric guitars, the Clubman and Stroller were modeled after the Fender Stratocaster, which at the time, was not available in the U.K. These first guitars were low-price, low-quality models made by a cabinet maker in Shoeburyness, Essex. In 1962 Vox introduced the pentagonal Vox Phantom guitar, originally made in England but soon after made by EKO of Italy. Phil "Fang" Volk of Paul Revere & the Raiders played a Phantom IV bass. It was followed a year later by the teardrop-shaped Mark VI, the prototype of which was made specifically for Brian Jones of The Rolling Stones, using a Fender Stratocaster bridge. By the end of the decade, Stones bassist Bill Wyman was himself playing a teardrop-bodied bass, made for him by the company, and subsequently marketed as the Wyman Bass.
