The Vox Marauder guitar was introduced in 1968 by Jennings Musical Instruments in the UK and was primarily sold on the European continent. This solid body six string instrument with a bolt on neck was offered as a conventional two pickup or with an optional series of battery operated electronic effects similar to those found in Vox guitars produced by Eko in Italy such as the Starstream, Grand Prix and Viper.

The Marauder Special guitar featured a row of six rectangular white push buttons that actuated the battery operated effects. These were labeled "Treble," "Bass," "Top Boost," "Mid Boost," "Fuzz," and "Repeat".
The Marauder Special also included a three position rotary selector switch located near the lower cutaway. It toggled between three frequency centers for the "Mid Boost" circuitry. This effect was virtually identical to the "MRB" circuit developed for American solid state Vox amps.
A three position "quick action" flip switch was used for pickup selection. Three rotary controls adjusted the fuzz sustain, repeater, and volume.
An on/off switch, built into the volume control, was designed to conserve battery life.
