Vox and the Fab Four are forever linked, so it's no wonder that they also had a violin shaped "Beatle" bass. When you get to it though, the Vox Astro is a whole different beast than Paul's, and one would argue, quite a bit cooler! The pickups are in the same ballpark tone-wise, but with quite a bit more power and punch. Sounds equally good with round-wounds as flatwounds. There's also an on-board fuzz circuit which is pretty darn sweet and is quickly becomes a go-to secret weapon for Vox owners. There's also and active treble/bass boost that is pretty unique sounding but would probably be used pretty sparingly. Be aware that due to being fully hollow and the small body size it is a neck heavy design. The closer string spread makes playing complex passages a breeze and the neck has a fast/slim feel. This one is all original and in very good condition. No breaks or repairs but there are the normal finish cracks like most Vox's of this era have, and the strap button has been relocated. An amazing sounding bass that is just ridiculously cool. 29.5" scale. 1-7/16" wide at the nut. 6.7 lbs. OHSC included.
