    A Phil "Fang" Volk Owned and Used Vox Acoustic Guitar, 1960s. Italian made, top made of spruce, sides and back made of maple, fingerboard made of rosewood, neck made of dark-stained maple, eight white dot inlays, black head stock reads "Vox," black fleur-de-lis design around the sound hole, black plastic pickguard reads "Vox" and "Country-Western," serial number "211405," cracking evident on the varnish but not on the actual wood; included with case.
    Length: 41"

    Paul Revere and the Raiders were the first American rock-n-roll band to be endorsed by Vox Equipment, shortly after the Beatles and the Rolling Stones had been in England. This Vox acoustic was the first run of this line of guitars that were made in Italy and the Raiders were the first band to actually receive this specific kind of guitar from the company.

    This guitar was consigned directly to Heritage Auctions by Phil "Fang" Volk himself. Volk recalls using this guitar in the studios and on the set of "Where The Action Is" [ABC Television, 1965-1967], the rock-n-roll variety show hosted by Dick Clark where Paul Revere and the Raiders were the house band. Volk has vivid memories of being part of numerous jam sessions back in the 1960s where this guitar was in the presence of rockers such as Brian Jones, David Crosby, Steve Winwood, Barry McGuire, Jimi Hendrix, the Beach Boys, the Monkees, Jan & Dean, Harry Nilsson, John Fogerty, Stephen Stills, Peter Noone, Donovan, Sonny Bono, Ricky Nelson, Frank Zappa, John Phillips, and Denny Doherty, among countless others. As the saying goes, "If this guitar could talk...;" included with a Letter of Provenance signed by Volk.

    Phil "Fang" Volk will be happy to autograph this guitar for the winning bidder if he or she so wishes; Heritage Auctions will be happy to arrange this after our sale.
