The Model E1 is a new production model of The Moog Guitar.

It uses the same innovative electronics and pick-ups as the original Paul Vo Collector Edition, with some new changes, according to Moog.

The Model E1 is designed to provide an “intimate playing experience” that connects musicians directly to the source of the sound: the strings of the guitar. It does this by controlling the way the strings vibrate.

The resulting timbres do not rely on effects or post-processing: They are created directly from the strings.

“The E1's controls just set the background mode — the control system characteristics, ” said Moog Guitar inventor, Paul Vo. “The strings are always your main user interface. The idea was never to make the guitar sound like anything else — it was to excite the instrument with controlled electronics to bring out hidden aspects of the instrument’s own natural character.”

This give and take of energy supposedly creates the Model E1's unique playing modes:

According to Moog, FULL SUSTAIN “clearly and powerfully sustains all six strings anywhere on the neck.” In MUTE MODE, the pickups “remove energy from the strings, resulting in short, staccato timbres.” In CONTROLLED SUSTAIN MODE, the Model E1 “sustains the strings being played, while removing energy from the strings that aren’t, resulting in fluid, sustained lead lines.”

Pricing & Availability
It’s available in three new finishes; Butterscotch, Candy Red, and Black, and now sports chrome hardware, a solid alder body, a choice of fixed or tremolo bridges, and a new lower price tag, $3,495.
