A sharp-horned body, comfortable set neck, flawless intonation, and innovative electronics.
The legacy of Vox-branded electric guitars goes all the way back to the early sixties. This model continues the Vox tradition of exceptionally well-playing and innovative guitars.
The Vox Double Cut Semi-Hollow Electric Guitar has many of the same design cues and distinguished components as the esteemed VOX Virage. The sharp-horned HDC-77 offers an outstanding value for a quality instrument well worthy of the VOX name. Beautiful to look at, the HDC-77 features figured maple-ply top & back with mahogany sides.
In addition to the unique body sculpting and design, the HDC-77 features the same inverse heel joint, deeply cut for free access to the upper frets, as the original Virage series guitars. The MaxConnect aluminum bridge and VOX Super Smooth tuners have superior string handling, and offer tuning stability as well as a thick, rich tone with clear, singing harmonics. Large rectangular position markers adorn the fingerboard; dot position markers grace the side of the neck for fast reference. The rosewood fingerboard provides a comfortable playing surface; the mahogany neck is rock-stable.
Wide Sonic Palette
Whisper-quiet CoAxe pickups feature three distinct tones, each derived from a different pickup element. The result is a versatile assortment of unique and sophisticated tones. The passive analog tone circuitry offers extended control using the Master Volume and Master Tone knobs. Logically laid out and easy to use, the controls allow fast changes during performance.
Neither a single-coil nor humbucker in the traditional sense, the CoAxe design incorporates a central row of pole-pieces encased in a high-impedance coil that's flanked by two blades. The entire construction is then surrounded by a low-impedance winding, which cancels the hum.
Chief designer Eric Kirkland says: "The basic idea is that the coils are coaxial: they're on the same plane, not stacked. The advantage is that the center sensing coil can work like a true single-coil and the outer, noise-cancelling coil is outside the magnetic field, between the central poles and the blades."
The HDC-77 provides a deep range of tonal choices to satisfy your tonal cravings.
