1966 Goya Electric Guitars catalogue
1966 Goya Electric Guitars catalogue, 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.
1965 Vox Ace electric guitar
1965 Vox Ace electric guitar 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.

    Default Thunderbird Bass Pickups?

    I would like some information on the Thunderbird pickups. What are they? Are they single coil or humbuckers? 2 wire or 4, and what is the dc impedance of them? I am working on a project, and they are the right physical size, but I need to know the electrical characteristics of them to make sure they will do what I need.
    Thanks.

    They are humbuckers but I don't own a modern 'bird to measure the DC resistance (which does not necessarily tell the whole truth regarding output). AFAIK they have only two leads and they are quite beefy in output. Hope this helps you.

    Thanks for the reply. I have been unable to find the specs on Tbird pickups. I will keep looking.
