Goya was well-known for it's acoustic guitars, produced by Levin in Sweden; but in the mid 1960s they added a number of Italian-built electric guitars and basses. Semi-acoustic models such as the 105, 107 and 109 Rangemaster guitars and Panther II bass were made by Polverini, whilst solid body models 116 and 118 were made by Galanti. These were well-built good quality instruments, but perhaps too expensive to sell in large numbers.
The Vox Ace was one of the early UK-designed Vox guitars produced by JMI in Dartford, Kent. It had been in production since at least 1962, but was redesigned for late 1963 with a more current look and a higher quality feel. The pickups were upgraded, as was the body; it was now thicker and made of solid wood. Despite this the guitar was now actually lighter in weight, due to a shorter overall length. Have a closer look at a sunburst-finished Vox Ace from 1965.
Attention: No collector's item, because NO ORIGINAL COLOR and false PICKGUARD!!
In the early 60s there were only fiesta-red and dakota-red as custom colors offered by Fender.
And all custom color painted Fender guitars and basses were equipped with a white pickguard!
The only exception were instruments, ordered in olympic white.
These as the standard sunburst specimen were also equipped with a tortoise-red guard, due to the better (and also nicer) contrast.
Since the introduction of the Fender Jazz Bass the first specimen were built with stack-knob controls - and this only from 1960 til about early 1962. Each PU got a double pot for adjusting volume and tone seperately. For getting no sound mishmash if e.g. neck pickup tone pot is set full and bridge pu pot is set on treble cut, both pu outputs (after volume and tone pot) were decoupled with a 150kOhms resistor each to the output jack. Also the wiring of the volume pots was similar to that of the precision basses and changed with the introduction of the Fender Jazz bass 3-knob version.
