ARCHTOP ACOUSTIC ELECTRIC GUITAR 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. The new Giulietta VGA-3PS 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 new Super Capacitor Preamp System, which provides clear, brilliant sound for up to 5 hours (TBD) after a quick 10-minute (TBD) charge via USB. The engineers and designers at VOX set their sights on developing a guitar that has all the looks and cool-factor of a classic archtop guitar, but was more easily playable and adaptable to a variety of playing styles and environments. The Giuletta’s excellent on-board piezo pickup system transforms the typical dull tone of an archtop by providing greater dynamic sensitivity, a more even distribution of lows, mids & highs, and enhanced sustain that rivals your favorite flattop acoustic. The Volume and Tone controls are discreetly located on the pickguard, just like a classic archtop, keeping the look crisp and uncluttered while delivering a wide range of tones to suit any style. There is also a low-cut pot that is adjustable with a small flat blade screwdriver to custom tailor the bass response of your guitar. The Giulietta VGA-3PS features a compact body size, which makes for a more comfortable and practical playing experience, but also helps reduce feedback and improve the overall tone of the guitar. The real secret of the Giulietta, however, is the innovative patent-pending VOX Hybrid Bridge System.
