Identify Vox guitar

Hi!

I bought this beautiful Vox Guitar in Sweden at a site similar to Ebay. I can't find any information on the internet about it, I hope you can help me out... It's driving me nuts, I want to know what model it is, or maybe its a custom made? The golden plate on the head I haven't seen on any other Vox guitar, even though I've scanned through every picture of Vox guitars on the internet...
I would be very, very greatful if you could help me out!

The serial number on the back of the head says ax0609001

Hallo, Fredrik

Man, this one has me stumped.

The guitar is a solid-body, asymmetrical double cutaway, with EMG pickups, and a (probably) coil-tapping switch.

Features resemble a Paul Reed Smith-style figured maple top, and an almost Les Paul-style headstock.

I would love to pry that brass plate off the headstock, to see if there's another brand of sticker or label under there.

Fred / Sparky:
I have double checked to to see if I could find anything about this VOX too. It appears to be a mystery instrument and I could find nothing in my references. Can anyone chime in here?

Hi and thanks for your answers!

I took of the brass plate and it was another label under it! It said "Wolf". I've never heard of that brand before. I looked it up on the internet and it seems that it is a guitar manufacturer from South Korea. Really nice quality though and sounds great! I've think it has been modified with EMG's and killswitch. The VOX-plate is a mystery though... Why would someone put that sticker on it??

Thanks again for your help!

Sincerely/
Fredrik

To make it look like it was made by a brand name with higher quality standards and to increase the resale value to someone without knowledge. My opinion anywho.
Be Good Bud,

Yessir,

I suspected that some previous owner plastered that brass 'Vox' badge on there as a fancy deception.

Here are some similar Wolf models:

Some very nice looking guitars and at a reasonable price too. Wonder how well they play? Has anyone purchase one or tried one lately?
