We are surrounding by innovation in the guitar industry, with futuristic new instruments continuing to push the boundaries of what the once-humble electric guitar can do. That said, we guitarists are a largely conservative bunch who still put our faith and trust in designs that are over half a century old.
With that in mind, what's really gets pulses racing is a guitar that breaks new ground from inside the trojan horse of a classic exterior, and that's exactly what Vox has achieved here. Derived from the Virage range launched in 2008, the new Series 55 models are beautifully contoured with a hugely versatile range of tones thanks to those CoAxe pickups, at a price that isn't beyond the reach of the gigging musician.
We loved the double-cutaway 77 Series guitar too, but the 55's price is too good to ignore. A serious amount of guitar for the money.
