While the dual cutaway Vox Soundcaster offset body resembled the Fender Stratocaster, the Soundcaster had an elongated lower bout. The Soundcaster body also had the same front and rear "comfort contours" as the Stratocaster. Neither of these contours were depicted in the Soundcaster catalog image shown above.
The Vox Soundcaster featured three Vox VII single coil pickups. The bridge pickup on the Stratocaster and Soundcaster guitars were similarly angled to enhance treble response. Both guitars featured a three way pickup selector switch, a volume control and two tone controls. Both guitars featured a spring loaded, balanced vibrato arm system. The Soundcaster also included a lever actuated string mute system. Vox suggested that this mute could be used to create banjo effects on the Soundcaster.
The 1964 Vox catalog stated that the Soundcaster guitar had a slim sycamore neck with an adjustable truss rod. Like the Strat, the Soundcaster neck was topped with a rose wood fret board.
The Soundcaster guitar retailed for £89.5 in 1964. This was roughly half the £173.5 price in the UK of a sunburst Fender Stratocaster in 1964.
