Bill Wyman Vox Teardrop VBW-2000 – iconic 1960s bass guitar reissued in extremely limited numbers

After 40 years, the VBW-2000 bass created specifically for Bill Wyman by Vox has been reissued in very limited numbers.

The Vox Bill Wymann Teardrop VBW-2000 Bass Guitar has been recreated in almost every detail, with the same styling and the same unique parts. That means a semi acoustic body, a craved maple top with three-colour sunburst and a back and sides made from a natural finished mahogany.

There’s also a short 30.5-inch length, a very slim neck, a custom bridge with chrome cover, chrome knobs and scratch plate and to fit that custom spec, a fitted hard case. Only six will be available in the UK (and not many more elsewhere).

    I just purchased one of these bass guitars from the UK in March 2010 and it’s awesome. Chrome knobs and scratch plate are a classy feature, lighweight and slim neck as described above. Sound is warm but punchy and compliments my Fender Mustang and Hofner Icon Beatles reissue guitars. Very happy female bassist from Australia!

    I purchased one of these basses second hand only about a year ago, it took much research and following up to actually find anyone with one of these great guitars (sunburst), and willing to sell it! the bass gives a great sound, very punchy and 60’s style tone, sounds best with flatwound strings. I live in Australia also, after months of research, i found out there are only 2 in Australia and only 100 world wide!

    I guess that’s me and you Jess!
