Virtual Jeff PRO - INTRODUCTION

FOMOfx was founded by two veteran guitar players from Sydney Australia. Inspired by winning 'Best in Show' at NAMM with the original Virtual Jeff, they spent 3 years developing the ground-breaking VJ PRO. The payoff is transparent pitch processing from its ultra-fast DSP. Now every player who doesn't want to modify their guitar or put up with whammy tuning hassles has a perfect retro-fit solution. Precision machined from aluminum, VJ PRO will survive the toughest gigs. Proudly designed in Australia.

Virtual Jeff PRO is shipping now from the FOMOfx online store – www.fomofx.com.

Suggested retail price is $499.00.

Equipped with noise reduction and noise gate modes, the Integrated Gate has a signal monitoring function that constantly monitors the input signal.

Luthier Maegen Wells recalls the moment she fell in love with the archtop and how it changed her world.

The archtop guitar is one of the greatest loves of my life, and over time it’s become clear that our tale is perhaps an unlikely one.

I had no idea that I had fallen head-over-heels in love with everything about what’s commonly perceived as a “jazz guitar.” No clue whatsoever. And, to be honest, I kind of miss those days. But one can only hear the question, “Why do you want to build jazz guitars if you don’t play jazz?” so many times before starting to wonder what the hell everyone’s talking about.

After many decades of sticking with flagship body shapes, Fender spent the last several years getting more playful via their Parallel Universe collection. The Meteora, however, is one of the more significant departures from those vintage profiles. The offset, more-angular profile was created by Fender designer Josh Hurst and first saw light of day as part of the Parallel Universe Collection in 2018. Since then, it has headed in both upscale and affordable directions within the Fender lineup—reaching the heights of master-built Custom Shop quality in the hands of Ron Thorn, and now in this much more egalitarian guise as the Player Plus Meteora HH.
