Vox Giulietta VGA-3PS Archtop Acoustic-Electric Guitar - Trans Black
FREE GUITAR INSPECTION!Your guitar will arrive ready to play.
Vox Giulietta VGA-3PS was designed with the contemporary player in mind. Its unique design features classic archtop styling with modern playability and cutting-edge sound quality thanks to Vox's Super Capacitor Preamp System, which provides clear, brilliant sound for up to 5 hours after a quick 10-minute charge via USB. The onboard piezo pickup system transforms the typical dull tone of an archtop by providing greater dynamic sensitivity, a more even distribution of lows, mids and highs and enhanced sustain that rivals your favorite flattop acoustic.

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.
Hybrid bridge with string mute
Giulietta VGA-3PS uses a traditional wooden base that features a specially-developed laminated wood/aluminum top section. The compensated one-piece saddle is equipped with a proprietary piezo system that provides quick response and even string-to-string output. Additionally, this unique combination of materials widens the frequency response of the piezo system, adding sparkling high harmonics and also significantly increasing sustain. As an added bonus, this bridge also reduces feedback at high volumes.
Not content to stop there, the designers and 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. To address this, Vox developed a simple-to-use removable string mute, included with the guitar, that prevents over-ring and leaves you with a pure, clean sound.
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 Giulietta 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.
