Vox Sidewinder IV

It’s been a blast having a couple of these guys in the shop recently. They’ve got tiny necks that are super fast and a headstock you could paddle upstream with. The built-in tuner is a neat feature, but the active treble/bass boost circuit is a really powerful tone-shaping tool. The distortion on this guy is one of the best bass fuzz/distortion sounds you can find. From the 1968 catalog:

“A brilliant all new 4-string double cutaway electric acoustic bass guitar. Has built in G tuner, distortion booster, treble and bass booster. All new easy-to-fret fast-neck with the Vox double T-bar and adjustable steel rod. Two exclusive VOX Ferro-Sonic pickups. Fully adjustable bridge. One volume, two tone controls, 3-position pickup selector switch. Jumbo chrome plated machine heads. Sunburst or Cherry.”
