This Vox Mando-Guitar is an exceptional instrument. It is in excellent cosmetic condition showing minor play wear including some nicks, scratches and dings and some discoloration on the pickguard which could likely be cleaned (but we like it just the way it is). Though it is in collector’s condition, this little guitar is a fantastic player as well. This instrument is tuned in unison choruses an octave above standard guitar tuning and plays exceptionally well. Notably used by producer extraordinaire Daniel Lanois, these little guitars are magic in the studio and are capable of creating exceptional textures and rhythmic variety. This is the cleanest example of the model we have seen and comes with lovely original case candy. Highly useful and collectable. An all around fantastic vintage package, this Vox Mandolin Guitar is one not to miss. A gem of a guitar shipped out safely and promptly from our little shop here in Clarksville, Tennessee, to your front door.
