VOX BC-V90B-BK BOBCAT GUITAR WITH TWO "SOAPBAR" PICKUPS AND BIGSBY VIBRATO - JET BLACK
The VOX Bobcat was originally produced during the mid-1960s, epitomising vintage hollow-body style. As befitting its revival, Vox have kept the historic design of this guitar unchanged, but brought it up to date for today's music scene by improving playability, controlling acoustic feedback, and raising the performance of the pickups; the result is the Bobcat V90B.
Carrying on the original design
The pickguard and pickup are based on the design of the original VOX Bobcat. The knobs are also made of aluminium as used on the original guitars. The headstock logo reproduces the vertical orientation of the original, projecting the same retro/vintage feel as the models of the 1960s.
The neck joint uses a set neck method that makes it easy to play even on the higher frets. The fixed Tune-o-matic bridge allows the optimal neck angle for easy playing, significantly improving the playability when compared to the original.
Semi-hollow structure that suppresses acoustic feedback even during high-volume performance
The semi-hollow body structure uses a weight-relieved center block, increasing sustain while being resistant to feedback even at high volume levels.
New pickups with a retro sound and appearance
The Bobcat V90B is equipped with soapbar pickups. These use Strat-type pole magnets, and are notable for their bright and punchy sound that is absent on previous semi-hollow guitars.
Bigsby vibrato tailpiece
The Bigsby vibrato tailpiece was first introduced in the 1940’s and has since been popular ever since, used on a huge variety of guitars from a wealth of different brands. A Bigsby bridge allows the player to add that characteristic vibrato sound to their performances.
Open-gear tuning heads made by Grover
The tuning heads are an open-gear type, which are lightweight and transmit the string vibration effectively
