DEMO: The VOX VGA3DTK acoustic electric guitar is an evolution of the classic, full-hollow archtop guitar.
The VOX Giulietta VGA-3D 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 state of the art sounds courtesy of VOX's AREOS-D Digital Modeling System.
Inspired by classic full-hollow archtop guitars, the new Giulietta VGA-3D guitars add sophisticated 21st century modeling technology to bring you versatility and advanced performance in a full-scale, compact instrument.
The new VGA-3D is an evolution of the classic, full-hollow archtop guitar. These all-new compact archtops feature sophisticated electronic technology, allowing for more versatility and performance friendly features when recording or playing live. These guitars also feature VOX's advanced modeling technology, allowing you to access a range of tones never before imagined.
The AREOS-D Digital Modeling System in the Giulietta VGA-3D puts the player in full control of 18 acoustic and electric modeled sounds. This sophisticated system incorporates several elements to achieve it's incredible sound quality: a magnetic pickup for authentic electric guitar models; a piezo pickup system for rich-sounding traditional instruments; a powerful DSP engine for modeled sounds; familiar volume, tone and selector controls and a Control Module that provides instant access to a wide variety of parameters.
The heart of the Giulietta VGA-3D is the VOX AREOS-D Digital Modeling System. The system places a wide range of electric, acoustic and synth models at the player's instant command. VOX delivers a powerful new tool to the creative musician for live and recording situations.
A piezo-equipped Tune-O-Matic style bridge system contributes to sparkling acoustic instrument models with brilliant clarity and wide-ranging harmonic content. The VOX XLM humbucking pickup produces authentic, touch-sensitive electric instrument models. This powerful combination puts a palette of sonic versatility at the player's fingertips.
The designers & engineers at VOX also sought to address another common issue with piezo-equipped archtop guitars; over-ring. This phenomenon occurs when a bridge-mounted piezo pickup amplifies not only the fretted sound, but also the length of string between the bridge and tailpiece, creating an undesirable effect that interrupts your performance.
