Hey I love 60's vox guitars and ,well there out of my price range so ,are there any cheap copies of the teardrop or phantom (I'd be more specific and pick one ,but it depends on my mood and who I've been listening to), also is there a difference in tone between the two (also whammy bars are preferable but not esential so bear that in mind in your responses.

I don't know how much you'd like these guitars (they aren't very Vox-y), but check out Rondo Music online. They have a ton of cool guitars for very little money. They are great guitars for the price.
I just got a VOX Teardrop guitar from a guy who says it is a reissue. I got it pretty cheap and I know nothing about these guitars. Does anyone know what it might be worth? I tried to search and found nothing except a mention that they only reissued 100 in 2007. This one came from an estate sale but I find it hard to believe it is one of 100. Did they reissue in the 80's or anything? It actually says VOX on the headstock and looks legit. What do you guys think?
The recently announced teardrop reissues by Vox look promising.
I opted for a VOX teardrop copy from the sixties, a '67 KAPA Minstrel. American body, neck by Hofner, pickups by Harmony. Includes a whammy. Great looking and playing guitar for the money. They show up occasionally on eBay; that's where I got mine for around $300.
