Vox Prototype HSC-77 Semi-Hollow Electric Guitar
Vox produced the Series 77 from 2010-2014 and has become quite popular with guitarist around the world – including the Purple One himself, Prince who has been seen playing both a custom psychedelic 77 and a Blackburst – most notably on his brilliant 8 minute set on Saturday Night Live last fall. The only thing not stock about this guitar are the satin nickel Sperzel tuners.
Vox produced the Series 77 Double Cutaway with specs identical to our Beautiful, One-Of-A-Kind SINGLE Cutaway Prototype.
This from Vox regarding the Series 77: Crafted with richly figured maple-ply tops and backs, the Series 77 instruments feature a unique semi-hollow construction and a sophisticated sharp horn design. Two VOX CoAxe pickups are teamed with a Master Volume and Master Tone control for a full range of sounds. The pickups run silent and hum-free in all modes – single coil, soapbar and humbucking; individual controls allow extended tone creation.
The MaxConnect™ bridge combines light weight and a large contact surface to deliver a rich, thick tone. The extended saddle travel offers flawless intonation with any gauge string. VOX Super Smooth tuners provide solid tuning stability. Inspired by the esteemed VOX Virage, the Series 77 guitars incorporate many of these same innovations. The sharp-horned, contoured body features beautiful figured maple tops and backs, offering a distinguished look and ensuring comfortable, fatigue-free playing. The rosewood fingerboards are crafted with elegant stylized block markers.
Hardshell case included (Vox padded gigbag for the prototype). Double cutaway contoured body; Figured Maple-ply top and back; mahogany sides. Two VOX CoAxe pickups deliver whisper-quiet humbucking, soapbar, or single-coil operation. Master Volume, Master Tone and Pickup Selection switch are placed for performance comfort.
