Dates of manufacture: 

1961 to 1967

VOX produced the PHANTOM VI between 1961 and 1967. It has an unusual five side body. The early models were assembled in England from parts outsourced to other manufacturers but production switched to Italy in 1965. The Phantoms had 2 or 3 single-coil pickups, open-back tuners, and a Tune-o-matic style bridge (later models had a Bigsby-style tremolo) On the back of the body was round leather-coated pad attached with press studs for comfort and to protect the finish.

The iconic coffin shaped body has been copied by various othe manufacturers: including Teisco and Kawai as well as a modern version by Eastwood Guitars. In the late 1990s VOX reissued a USA built version of the iconic Phantom - which some consider more playable than the original European made instruments.
