The Moog Guitar Paul Vo Collector's Edition Electric Guitar puts revolutionary technology in the hands of the guitarist. Moog Music is known for building the finest instruments and the Moog Guitar is first and foremost a very fine guitar designed to be played by the best musicians as their primary axe. Its AAAAA quilted maple top, swamp ash body and ebony finger board bespeak the quality that musicians have come to expect from a Moog musical instrument.
Not a guitar synthesizer, not a MIDI guitar, or an effects processor; players are intimately connected to The Moog Guitar because it works its magic on the strings themselves.
The addition of Moog Guitar Electronics opens guitarists to a whole new musical vocabulary. But this is not a guitar synth, there is no MIDI. The sounds are not the result of effects or post-processing, but are actually coming from the strings. There is infinite, powerful sustain available at every fret position and on every string.
This sustain is totally controllable. The guitar's electronics are designed to sustain the notes you are playing, while actively muting the ones you aren't. The power to sustain and mute can be shifted between the neck and bridge pickups to create harmonic blends.
At the flick of a switch, the same power that is used to sustain the strings will immediately mute them. This will not only make the guitar sound different, but actually feel different as well. With the Moog Paul Vo guitar, you can use traditional guitar techniques in creative new ways.

Vo Power Knob - Controls intensity of sustain and mute. The knob turned fully CW is full Vo Power and fully CCW is no Vo Power.
Piezo Blend Blends the piezo bridge pick-up signal into the guitar's output signal.
Harmonic Balance Knob - Controls the balance of Vo Power between neck and bridge pick-ups. (When the Filter Toggle is in "Tone Control" position, this function is moved to the foot pedal and the Harmonic Balance knob does nothing.)
Master Volume Knob - Controls overall volume (Moog and piezo pick-ups).
Tone/Filter Knob- Adjusts the guitar tone when the Filter Toggle is in Tone Control position; adjusts the resonance of the Moog filters in the two Moog Filter Toggle positions.
There are three switches:
Mode Selector Switch - Switches between Mute Mode, Controlled Sustain Mode and Full Sustain Mode
Filter Toggle Switch Switches the Moog Filter between a standard guitar Tone Control - (toggle away from strings), a Moog Articulated Filter - (toggle centered), and a Moog Ladder Filter - (toggle towards strings).
Five Position Pick-up Selector Switch: Neck, In-phase, Out of phase, Bridge, and Piezo. only. (The piezo signal accessed via the Piezo Blend knob passes through the Moog filter; "piezo only" does not.)
Floor Pedal- Function depends on the setting of the Filter Toggle switch.
- When the Filter Toggle is in "Tone Control" position, the floor pedal controls the harmonic balance. (Forward = high harmonics, Middle = full harmonics, Back = lower harmonics.)
- When the Filter Toggle is in "Moog Articulated Filter" position, the floor pedal controls the filter cutoff frequency that the articulated filter starts with.
- When the Filter Toggle is in "Moog Ladder Filter" position, the foot pedal controls the filter cutoff frequency.
