The Vox Hurricane guitar was offered in the 1966 Vox: It's Whats Happening - Beatles Cover" and 1967 Vox: It's Whats Happening - Raiders Cover" catalogs. A black and white reprint of any of these catalogs is available at North Coast Music.

Vox offered four versions of guitars based on the Fender influenced body and neck shapes used for the Hurricane. The names of these guitars were based on British World War II fighter airplanes. The V233 Meteor featured a single, center mounted pickup without tremolo, the V242 Super Meteor added the whammy bar. While the V234 Hurricane had a bridge and neck pickup and tremolo, the V235 Spitfire added a third piclup.

The 1966 US Vox catalog described the V234 Hurricane as follows: "Contoured body; quick flick 3 position switch; true spring action vibrato; individual string bridges; sunburst and popular colors."

The Hurricane guitar was produced for Vox in Italy by Eko in Italy. It featured the aluminum "Double T" reinforced neck with an adjustable truss rod. A decal on the back of each guitar states: "Made by Vox in Italy."

The 1965 US Vox price list indicated that the retail price of the Super Lynx Deluxe guitar was $189.90 USD. Adjusting the price for fifty years of inflation, the Hurricane would retail today for about $1299.

My thanks to Mark Scaffidi for allowing me to take photos of his Vox Hurricane guitar.
