Vox Bulldog Electric Guitar: Need Wiring Diagram

I have a mid 1960s Vox Bulldog 6 string electric guitar that had wiring repaired previously in its lifetime and seems to be on the fritz.

I have replaced the tone and volume pots, output jack and am looking for a diagram for wiring the 3-way switch.

The instrument has a Switchcraft 3-way (however it is not the standard "Gibson Style" 3 way). This switch has additional soldering lugs and springy steel contacts. It is a "Right Angle" configuration similar to those used in Gibson SG guitars (lower profile, etc.)

Does anyone have info on where to obtain the original style Switchcraft 3-way switch?
Or.... Does anyone have info on wiring a "Gibson Style" 3-way as a retro fit in this instrument?

Keep in mind this is a 3 single coil pickup equipped guitar with 2 tone controls and one master volume.

The hurdle is in keeping originality with the pickguard and not drilling any holes, etc.
The pickup configuration is that of a Strat, BUT... cannot use a blade style switch.

Once again, 3 single coils with a Switchcraft 3 way switch.

Please advise. Thanks!

Justin

Mouser stock the correct replacement switch. I can send you a photo of its wiring if you supply me with your email.

3 Pickup Vox Bulldog Wiring

Hi Robert,
I am hoping you might have a photo of where the pickup hots connect to the switch and/or the pots.
I am trying to connect original pickups to a NOS wiring harness I obtained from eBay, but have no idea where each of the leads go for correct function.

Please send/post a photo (if possible) of which pickup connects to which lug on the 3 way switch. That's the biggest mystery for me.

I appreciate it!
Thanks in advance!

Vox Caimbridge reverb amp (re-issue)

I have a 2 ten Caimbridge, 30 watt amp. The volume of this amp won't keep up with my Vox Pathfinder 15 watts. I replaced the preamp tube, but it didn't help. Is this normal for this amp, or does something else need to be replaced?
Thanks,

: Thanks very much

Anyone who has a Tempest XII probably needs a pick guard. I have a 1966 which was in the case for much of the past forty years. The plastic apparently dried out and "shrunk," causing the two corners to pop off at the screws near the neck. Some guitar repair technicians are good at fabricating pick guards, but most are either woodcrafters or electronics geeks. Please advise how your search has gone. Maybe I'll replace mine, too. RED

1963 italian vox mark XII electric guitar

i own a 1963 italian vox mark XII black electric guitar and i would like to know its price. can anybody help?

Re: 1963 italian vox mark XII electric guitar

Hello, Our rhythm guitarist had a 12- string Mark X11 guitar by Vox back in 1967. It had a protective back pad ( 8 sided) on the back that snapped on. It was only made from 1964 - 1967. In mint shape, the Italian made one is worth at least $1,000.00 and the Engish made one is worth at least $1,500.00. Remember that is for a Mint shape guitar.(Info from Blue Book of Electric guitars -7th Edition 1999) You can see our guitarists sunburst Vox Mark X11 at Myfirstband.com ,click on Indiana -(SOS) Society of Sound page. There is a group shot and a close up in color of him with it. Peace........Rockin Rory in Indiana
