Description

A rare piece of space-age technical genius, the Vox V251 Guitar Organ - the first of that rare crossover, built by putting the circuits of a Vox Continental organ into the body of a Vox Phantom guitar. First and foremost, it is a guitar. Six strings, a couple of perfectly matched single-coils, a 3-way pick-up switch, and a lovely smooth tremolo for some beautiful shimmer. Sounds great. But it...'s the organ that makes this unique, and unlocks the fun. The strings become the "keys", activating the correct pitch when pressed to the fretboard. The open-string push-buttons allow you to bring in the open notes when needed. You can change the pitch of the guitar across four octaves, and go from church organ to space-age oboe or flute at the flick of a switch. And you can add a more percussive delay effect to your chords, just by holding them down. Not a gigging guitar. It's an absolute beauty though, so perfect for a very unique photo or video shoot. And, if you're a studio- or home-based sonic explorer, this is just brilliant. Of course, it takes a little time to get used to it, but you'd have to expect that given what a ground-breaking piece of technology it is. ​ In very good condition for its age. The percussion features work, but can be a little temperamental, but otherwise perfect. Happy to include a support pack at no extra cost, with: - 5 Picks - Clip-on Tuner - Strap - Hercules Mini Stand - Cleaning Cloth. Happy to meet personally in London to hand over. And if this isn't the one for you, check out my other guitar, amp and pedal listings on Fat Llama!
