Vox has unveiled the Mark III Mini electric guitar – a reboot of its famous Mark IV “Teardrop” guitar from the 1960s.
The model was first shown in January last year as part of the brand’s Future Product Preview, and now, after 12 months of waiting, the Mark III Mini has officially been released.
Arriving in three colorways – Marble, Loud Red and Aqua Green – the model sports the same unique body shape as the six-string flagship Teardrop, but features an updated spec sheet that features a pair, rather than a trio. , single coils.
Unspecified proprietary pickups are controlled via master volume and tone knobs, as well as a pickup selector, and line up along a fixed six-saddle bridge system. The jumpsuit is said to lend itself to a tone true to the 60s.
What’s interesting about the Mark III Mini is that, despite the incredibly small scale of 476mm, the guitar offers the same tuning and tension as a standard guitar, thanks to the electric guitar strings of heavy gauge, 42mm nut and newly designed custom tuning pegs.
Therefore, it promises the playability of a full-size electric but in a remarkably small package that can be easily transported.
In terms of specifics, the Mark II Mini sports a lightweight terentang body and a bolt-on maple neck, which is topped with a purple heart fingerboard and 19 medium jumbo frets.
A range of accessories also come with the model, including a neck adjustment wrench, saddle adjustment tool and carry bag.
The Vox Mark III Mini is available now for £199, which equates to around $270.
