Hello.  This is my Vox Skybolt hollow body electric bass guitar, made in Italy.  As all of these basses were designed, it has a 30" short scale neck.  This rare bass from the 60s plays perfectly and has a straight neck with great action.  All the knobs, switch and pick-ups work.  I just had it serviced.  This baby has had some life experience.  There are a ton of original parts including pick-ups but not all parts are original. There is a replacement fender tuner which is pictured.  The jack plate has been replaced with one that is square (original was oval which is why the old screw hole is exposed, pictured).  Also, the cracks here are on the surface gloss coating.  The knobs are original though there is damage around one of them as you can see in the picture.  This happened on my watch, oh no!  The knob was pushed into the hollow body and has to be re-glued.  Now it kind of looks like hell but works just fine!  I think if you actually got a replacement knob here it would look so much better.  Other imperfections on the bass include some metal scrapes to the bottom Vox tail piece, some cracks to the gloss coat on the body which are superficial, the fabric on the circular black cushion thing on the back has some damage, and it's missing it's pick guard.  This bass comes with a Dean acoustic bass hard case (pictured).  This case is the only case I could find that fits the bass.  It's outfitted with thick foam to that the bass fits perfectly snug.  The case dimensions are 53" long, 20" wide at widest point, and 7" heigh
