Voxton X-204 Acoustic Guitar - 1969-1970

Voxton X-204 12 String Electro-Acoustic Guitar

The 1968 US Vox catalog offered forty-six individual models of guitars and basses. It is unlikely that any other manufacturer offered a larger variety of stringed instruments in the late 1960's than Vox. The entire 1968 Vox guitar lineup was produced for Thomas Organ by Eko of Recanati, Italy.

Thomas Organ revamped and simplified the US Vox guitar line in 1969. Only two of the prior forty-six Italian made Vox guitars were included in the 1969 "The New Sound for the New Scene" Vox product catalog; the Country Western and the Folk XII. Thomas Organ liquidated the remaining forty-four models of Italian made Vox guitars in the 1969 and 1970 Vox dealer price lists.

Thomas Organ replaced the departing Italian made Eko/Vox instruments with a new in-house guitar brand they named "Voxton." Produced for Thomas Organ in Japan, the Voxton line was comprised of twelve models: eight acoustic guitars, three six-string electrics and one four-string bass.

The 16" wide, 4½" deep body of the Voxton X-204 twelve string electro-acoustic guitar had a laminated spruce top with an adjustable rosewood bridge and black plastic pick guard. The back and sides were laminated mahogany. It's 20 fret, 25½" scale detachable mahogany neck featured a rosewood finger board that joined the body at the fourteenth fret. The neck also included eight pearloid block marker inlays and a zero fret. The Voxton X-204 also featured a sound hole mounted pickup, volume and tone controls and sixteen individual enclosed tuners.

The 1969 retail price for the Voxton X-204 twelve-string electro-acoustic guitar was $159.50 plus case. Adjusted for fifty years of inflation, the X-204 guitar would retail for about $1130 today.
