The VOX Giulietta VGA-3PS single cutaway archtop acoustic/electric guitar was designed with the contemporary player in mind. Its unique design features classic archtop styling, yet offers modern playability and cutting-edge sound quality thanks to VOX’s new Super Capacitor Preamp System.
Super Capacitor Preamp System
Traditionally, archtop guitars are available either as fully acoustic instruments or with magnetic pickups cut into the top, with all controls mounted in the wood. A different approach was used to give the VGA-3PS greater projection and sustain. The pickup system is contained in the Hybrid Bridge, with the controls suspended in the pickguard, allowing the top to resonate freely without the weight of the electronic components inhibiting its true vibration. The wide range, low noise preamp system is also integrated into the pickguard. The jack assembly on the side of the guitar features a 1/4” output jack and a mini USB jack for connecting the included USB cable for charging the Super Capacitor Preamp System.
Compact Size, Big Tone
Full-size archtop guitars look great, but their large size can make them uncomfortable for many players. These guitars are also notoriously susceptible to feedback at stage volume. By carefully balancing the smaller single cutaway body size and full-scale neck, VOX has been able to create a modern instrument that any player can appreciate, regardless of style.
