Teardrop guitar and bass reissued
Not content with recreating and updating some of the finest amplifiers in its back catalogue, Vox has now turned its attention to guitars.
Back in the sixties, the distinctive Teardrop model was a favourite of original Rolling Stones Brian Jones and Bill Wyman, and circa 2008 the guitar and bass models return with a few modern tweaks but plenty of retro vibe intact.
Prices and availability for each of these limited edition models are still TBC, but Vox has published the following spec on its official website:
