Nashville, TN (July 21, 2011) -- VOX Amplification (Summer NAMM booth 800) is showing its new VOX USA Custom Guitars. VOX Guitars’ G-Rok R&D facility in Novato, California, USA, has begun offering exquisitely handcrafted custom electric guitars on a limited production basis. Established in 2007 to focus on development of a new generation of VOX electric guitars, G-Rok R&D created the current award-winning lineup of solid and semi-hollow instruments, driven by innovation in design, ergonomics, pickups and hardware.

Staffed by VP of Development Rich Lasner, designer Eric Kirkland and engineer/luthier Bob McDonald, G-Rok offers players the experience of owning a very personal guitar, meticulously constructed by hand in the USA. The custom guitars are made one at a time, using a single luthier from start to finish, with the customer receiving a true handcrafted instrument.

Four contemporary VOX body styles are available, along with a wide variety of neck, body and fretboard woods, inlay choices and finishes, allowing customers to create their ultimate guitar. Proprietary VOX hardware and a choice of VOX CoAxe or DiMarzio 3-90 pickups complete the package.

Initially available only within the US, the VOX USA Custom Shop guitar program will be available internationally progressively throughout the remainder of 2011.

We’re almost finished with the aging process on our project guitar. Let’s work on the fretboard, nut, and truss rod cover, and prepare the headstock for the last hurrah.

Hello and welcome back to Mod Garage. This month we’ll continue with our relic’ing project, taking a closer look at the front side of the neck and treating the fretboard and the headstock. We’ll work on the front side of the headstock in the next part, but first we must prepare it.
