SNAMM12: VOX Announces Apache Series Travel Guitars


VOX Amplification has created the Apache series of travel guitars. The new Series brings back two of the most unique body styles from the classic VOX back catalog: the Teardrop-shape Apache I, and the Phantom-style Apache II. Both have been enhanced with onboard amplification and practice features.
Ideal for on-the-go practice, each Apache Series instrument is equipped with a built-in, 2-channel amplifier (clean/overdrive) and a pair of three-inch speakers. Volume, Gain, and Tone controls provide a wide range of sounds. Power comes from six AA Batteries, yielding roughly 26 hours of playing time. Unique to the Apache Series are 66 onboard rhythm patterns, divided into musical genres for fast selection. Tempo and Level knobs are provided, as well as a Start/Stop button. Of the 66 Patterns, six are extended length "Song" patterns. In addition to providing accompaniment, these patterns are ideal for rhythm training or for backstage warm-ups. The Apache Series instruments feature basswood bodies, hard maple necks, and rosewood fingerboards. Each is equipped with a single-coil pickup and a set of sealed precision tuners. Each Model is available in four colors. The Apache I Teardrop models come in White; Seafoam; Salmon Red; and a 3-Tone Sunburst. The Apache II Phantom models come in White; Seafoam; Salmon Red; and Black. A headphone jack can mute the internal speakers, and an Aux input allows jamming along to an MP3 player, computer tracks, etc. A convenient E-String tuner is also built in to each instrument. All models include a strap and a carry bag. Pricing and Availability:
The VOX Apache I Teardrop Travel Guitar and Apache II Phantom Travel Guitar have a US street price of $299.99 with availability to be announced shortly. More information:
