Q - What does the name "VOX" mean? A - It is the Latin word for "voice."
Q - Did Vox ever make left handed guitars? A - Until recently I would have said no, but I have just seen an authentic Italian lefty Vox bass. This is the only real lefty Vox instrument I've ever seen but there may be more out there.
