The VOX Bobcat were produced in Italy during the mid-1960s. These were very beautiful instruments with a vintage-flavored look. As befitting their revival, VOX have kept the historic design of these guitars unchanged, but brought them up to date for today's music scene by improving their playability, controlling acoustic feedback, and raising the performance of the pickups.
Featuring a built-in Bigsby vibrato tailpiece
The Bigsby vibrato tailpiece was introduced on guitars in the 1940’s and has since been a dominant standard, used on guitars from many manufacturers. Probably the greatest merit of the Bigsby is how it captivates players at first sight, with a rustic appearance. In terms of sound, adding the Bigsby to a guitar brings a characteristic brightness in tone with a strong sound that comes to the forefront.
Featuring a soap-bar type pickup that handles music of many genres
A stylish soap-bar type single-coil pickup is featured on this model. This pickup offers a brilliant high-end with a characteristic wide sonic range. The pickup is suitable for a variety of genres, including rock, fusion, jazz and more.
The neck joint uses a set neck method that makes it easy to play even on the higher frets. The fixed Tune-o-matic bridge allows the optimal neck angle for easy playing, significantly improving the playability when compared to the original.
Semi-hollow structure that suppresses acoustic feedback even during high-volume performance
The semi-hollow body structure uses a weight-relieved center block, increasing sustain while being resistant to feedback even at high volume levels.
Grover open-gear tuning pegs used
These models feature lightweight Grover open-gear tuning machines that more readily conveys the string vibrations, making the guitar easier to tune. This mechanism offers stable tuning even when playing for long periods of time.
