The VOX Tonal Pleasures Giveaway

VOX Virage DC Semi-Hollow Double Cutaway Guitar

The Virage DC advances the art of the semi-hollow guitar by delivering tone and playability beyond traditional electric guitars. Its ergonomically curved body is contoured along its length and across its width for a perfect “fit” whether you’re sitting or standing. A proprietary VOX Three-90™ Pickup System relies on two triple-coil pickups to deliver clean, crunch and lead tones, similar to having single coil, P90 and humbucking-style versatility all in one instrument.

Additional features include:

  • Three-way toggle for quick pickup selection between clean, crunch and lead modes
  • Integral Tonebar™ construction that keeps feedback at bay
  • Custom, hand-carved neck joint with an inverse heel
  • VOX Full Contact™ aluminum bridge provides thick, rich tone with clear harmonics
  • Includes hardshell case

Value: $3,300.00

A handwired version of the revered VOX AC30, the AC30H2 combines a 1960-era EF86 preamp channel and 1963 Top Boost channel with modern tone shaping control enhancements. The result is a 30-watt amplifier that provides natural overdrive, creamy distortion and a palette of tonal colors that are among the finest ever offered by VOX.


  • Two channels, each with two traditionally-wired inputs that have a 6 dB difference in gain between them
  • Two Celestion AlNiCo “Blue” 12-inch speakers.
  • Tube complement made up of 1 x EF86, 3 x ECC83/12AX7, 2 x EL84 and 1 x EZ81 (rectifier)
