Phantom guitarworks versus Vox

Hi there, I'm new to this forum. I'm really into vintage Vox guitars, especially teardrops, but as these are quite rare to come by, I'm thinking of purchasing a teardrop hollowbody from phantom guitarworks. Anyone tried these guitars? I hear they are supposed to be really good quality guitars, some even say they surpass Vox. Any help would be appreciated.

Cheers, J

I can't help much, but I noticed FleebUK has a lefty BJ teardrop by Phantom. I could dig up the link if you're interested in watching its price.

Thanks, a lefty BJ Teardrop is not really what I'm looking for though, but if it's no trouble, I could take a look at it.

Cheers, J

Danged if I can find it now, not even on completed listings. I wonder if Fleeb pulled it? Anyway, I did spot this 12 which is actually not far from me.http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/VOX-PHANTOM-12-GUITAR-ORIGINAL-WITH-HARD-CASE_W0QQitemZ7360308800QQcategoryZ106457QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem Like some of the questioners, it looks like it's not exactly original to me - not that I'm an expert.

Psychocandyboy, check out also Brandoni guitars who have a selection of Phantoms and Teardrops: http://www.brandoniguitars.co.uk/index2.html

Some years ago they bought up all the old Eko stock from the factory in Italy, and this included Italian-made Vox guitar parts.

I've played a phantom...but not the vox. I'd compare the phantoms to a high end dan electro...the sound's okay and its comfortable to play.

Thanks guys! Excellent stuff.

Hey, if you do get one or the other, don't go sticking it head-first into the sand at the beach.

I've seen that Jesus and Mary Chain video.
