Vox Bobcat V90 - Cherry Red
This Vox Bobcat V90 has all the vibe! These are faithfull recreations of the Italian-built guitars from the 60's, and man are they cool! This one has a beautiful Cherry finish which really pops next to the white pickup covers and pickguard. The small block inlays are a nice touch and all the binding really pulls the look together. Not only does this guitar look awesome, but it sounds and plays incredible too! We really can't believe how great this guitar came set up right out of the box. It stays in tune beautifully and is a joy to play. The V90 pickups sound great - P90s are some of the most versatile ickups out there - and for single coils they're super quiet. We're super impressed by this V90 Bobact from Vox, and we have a feelong you will be too! Please let us know if you have any questions!

The VOX Bobcat and Lynx semi-hollow body guitars were produced in Italy during the mid-1960s. They featured unusual pickup configurations and a distinct look, which we have revived in the new Bobcat V90 and S66. As befitting their revival, we have kept the historic design of these guitars unchanged, but brought them up to date by improving their playability, controlling acoustic feedback, and raising the performance of the pickups.
The Bobcat V90 is a semi-hollow body guitar that features soapbar pickups. It has a vintage-inspired design that mostly stays true to the original Italian-made Lynx guitar, but features some modern improvements. The pickguard and pickup are based on the design of the original VOX Bobcat, and use plastic of the same hue. The knobs are also made of aluminum 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. The pickups in the Bobcat are modeled after the original Italian-made pickups, but with some improvements in the voicing. The Bobcat V90 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. The tuning heads are an open-gear type, which are lightweight and transmit the string vibration effectively.
