Back to the
British Invasion – The Bobcat V90, a semi-hollow guitar with a vintage feel.
Bobcat and Lynx were produced in Italy during the mid-1960s. These were very
beautiful instruments with a vintage-flavored look. The Bobcat in particular,
unusually for hollow-body guitars, featured three single-coil pickups, setting
it distinctly apart from other guitars. As befitting their revival, we have
kept the historic design of these guitars unchanged, but brought them up to
date for today’s music scene by improving their playability, controlling
acoustic feedback, and raising the performance of the pickups; the result is
the Bobcat V90 and Bobcat S66.
three color variations: sunburst, cherry red, and black.
on the original design
pickguard and pickup are based on the design of the original VOX Bobcat, and
use plastic of the same hue. The knobs are also made of aluminum as used on the
original guitars. The headstock logo reproduces the vertical orientation of the
original, projecting the same retro/vintage feel as the models of the 1960s.
The neck joint
uses a set neck method that makes it easy to play even on the higher frets. The
fixed Tune-o-matic bridge allows the optimal neck angle for easy playing,
significantly improving the playability when compared to the original.
structure that suppresses acoustic feedback even during high-volume performance
semi-hollow body structure uses a weight-relieved center block, increasing
sustain while being resistant to feedback even at high volume levels.
pickups with a retro sound and appearance
V90 is equipped with soapbar pickups. These use Strat-type pole magnets, and
are notable for their bright and punchy sound that is absent on previous

variation, these have a sound and distinctive appearance that sets them apart
from other semi-hollow guitars.
