This 60's Vox Wildcat is used and in good playable condition. It has noticeable finish checking but this does not affect the playability. The pots are scratchy but both work.

The 21 fret, 25½" scale bolt-on neck featured an adjustable truss rod, white binding and a zero fret. The neck was ~1⅝" wide at the nut and 2" wide at the 12th fret. It also featured the Eko designed "Double T" aluminum extrusion that was embedded inside the length of the neck for greater stability.

Six individual open gear tuners with white plastic buttons were included. A decal on the back of the head stock stated the guitar was "Made in Italy for Vox."

The ~3" deep arched body was ~15" across at the lower bout. It was offered a transparent red, transparent brown or sunburst polyester finish. A floating white plastic pickguard featured the name of the guitar.

While not mentioned in the catalog offering for this guitar, the larger size of the pickup used on the Wildcat guitar suggests that it may have been equipped with an Eko "double polarity" (aka humbucking) pickup. Similar "double polarity" pickups were installed on the Eko "Florentine" model. A pair of rotary controls adjusted volume and tone.
