From Bluesters and Big Banders to Bubblegum and Britpoppers, the sonorous voice of the semi acoustic has endeared itself to players of varying styles throughout the history of the electrified guitar.
Sporting two WOCHB double coil pickups, the Vintage VSA500 is equally adept when comping smooth jazz accompaniments as it is singing out single note blues lines, while its chambered body carries the sound of strummed chords all the way to the back row and beyond.
