Guitars » Mark III/Mark V
Legendary in the history of the electric guitar, these instruments are ready to retake the spotlight The new MARK III/MARK V – not just a reissue; a legend
With their innovative body shapes, the Teardrop guitar and Phantom guitars that appeared in 1960 were dominant presences in the world of uniquely shaped guitars. Even today, many musicians are mesmerized by these guitars, and their perpetual popularity causes them to sell for high prices on the used market. The strong demand for reissued models has been met only by limited run production models and the VOX Apache series of travel guitars, which added yet another chapter to the tale of these instruments.
Finally in 2013, these models are on the move again as a part of the VOX line of electric guitars. There are two body shapes: the Teardrop-style MARK III and the Phantom-style MARK V. Additions include a tremolo arm that support a variety of genres and performing styles and three single-coil pickups for an ample variety of sounds. Not bound by traditional specifications, these guitars have been reborn to meet the needs of today’s guitarists. Each model lets you choose from four colors ranging from pop hues to traditional sunburst; these guitars have serious fashion sense.
The Mark III/MARK V guitars have an unusual ability to capture the heart and exert a mysterious attraction over the player. As instruments that carry on VOX's legacy, these models will continue to be loved for just as long as the original Teardrop and Phantom.
