Virtuo

$3300

Ergonomically designed for comfort with a slim body the Virtuo is an acoustic guitar made specifically with the electric player in mind.

The neck is slim and fast like an electric guitar and with its innovative neck to heel design it allows the player full 22 fret access to reach even those highest notes but it's the electronics and pickup systems where we can really begin to see the possibilities of tone and range of sounds that are available to the player.

This is a guitar with 3 unique voicings

Acoustic voice - Graphtech Ghost Piezo

Electric voice - Fishman Fluence Humbuckers x2

Midi/Synth voice - 13 pin output

The two Fishman Fluence humbucker pickups have vintage and modern humbucker sounds and with an option to split to single coils and also a modern humbucker hot rod boost. Graphtechs 6 individual strings under saddle piezo which are also fully height adjustable. Since we have 6 individual piezo pickups we can connect directly to the 13 pin guitar synth output giving the guitar a full range of midi sounds when connected to a guitar synthesiser system. All the onboard pickups can be blended together to create a range of sounds unique to every individual player's taste. This guitar has all analogue switching and wiring.

Finally, we have added a new fully adjustable acoustic bridge so that the string height and intonation can easily be changed in a matter of seconds.

Bogner's beastliest amp is made miniature—and still slays.

Excellent sounds in a portable and very affordably priced package.

A footswitchable clean channel and onboard reverb would make it perfect.

$329

The original Bogner Ecstasy, released in 1992, is iconic in heavy rock circles. Though it was popularized and preferred by rock and metal artists (Steve Vai and Brad Whitford were among famous users), its ability to move from heavy Brit distortion to Fender-like near-clean tones made it appealing beyond hard-edged circles. Even notorious tone scientist Eric Johnson was enamored with its capabilities.
