Classic Teardrop and Phantom
body shapes return with onboard amps and practice
VOX Amplification has created
the Apache series of travel guitars. The new Series
brings back two of the most unique body styles
from the classic VOX back catalog: the Teardrop-shape Apache I, and
the Phantom-style Apache II. Both have been enhanced with onboard
amplification and practice features.
Ideal for on-the-go practice, each Apache Series instrument is
equipped with a built-in, 2-channel amplifier (clean/overdrive)
and a pair of three-inch speakers. Volume, Gain, and Tone controls
provide a wide range of sounds. Power comes from six AA Batteries,
yielding roughly 26 hours of playing time.
Unique to the Apache Series are 66 onboard rhythm patterns,
divided into musical genres for fast selection. Tempo and Level
knobs are provided, as well as a Start/Stop button. Of the 66
Patterns, six are extended length "Song" patterns. In addition to
providing accompaniment, these patterns are ideal for rhythm
training or for backstage warm-ups.
The Apache Series instruments feature basswood bodies, hard maple
necks, and rosewood fingerboards. Each is equipped with a
single-coil pickup and a set of sealed precision tuners. Each Model
is available in four colors. The Apache I Teardrop models come in
White; Seafoam; Salmon Red; and a 3-Tone Sunburst. The Apache II
Phantom models come in White; Seafoam; Salmon Red; and Black.
A headphone jack can mute the internal speakers, and an Aux
input allows jamming along to an MP3 player, computer tracks, etc.
A convenient E-String tuner is also built in to each instrument.
All models include a strap and a carry bag.
