The Moog Guitar is produced in my home town of Asheville, North Carolina USA. I purchased the fixed bridge but I believe you can get it with the Rose Floyd Bridge. It is a Neck Thru design for the neck of the guitar. It also has 22 frets. The pickups are a Moog Custom design that also have Piezos in the Saddle. They sound very good actually. It has the standard volume per pickup, mix knob, tone and also a few sweet extras. It has a built in 12 stage moog filter (that can be controlled with an expression pedal) and also the very awesome '"VO power" which creates the signature effect.
The body has a cutaway style making it easy to access all notes on the bridge. This guitar has an excellent warm tone (as to be expected from Moog) and you can easily dial in a great guitar sound. Using the VO power can be a little tricky and is really like nothing else out there with the exception of the Ebow. At least it has the same EBOW sound capabilities plus more (able to resonate multiple strings unlike the ebow) but operates much differently. The guitar is a little heavy compared to my Parker Fly but it very comfortable overall and the neck is very nicely formed to play nice with your hand.
I use this guitar with every effect I can get my hands on but mostly with Reverb, Delay (must have) and Moog Ring Modulation. The delay really helps with creating "Pads" on this guitar.
My favorite sounds are the pads I can generate out of this guitar. I like to play it on my lap and use both hands to fret. The main sounds you will get out of this guitar alone are of course clean crisp guitar tone, a wah effect from the built in Lowpass Filter and crazy morphing sounds with the VO power option. I play electronica/Rock mainly these days and this guitar fits perfectly for that style.
What I like most about this guitar is I don't need to use my somewhat clumsy Ebow to get the fun "violin"/"Pad" sounds I love. What's even better is that is can vibrate all the strings on the fretboard for really large intense pad action. The only complaint I have about this guitar is the VO power knob seems slightly unbalanced. Half way turned doesn't seem to give you half of the overall VO power. I generally have to have it almost completely wide open (about %75) to get the VO power to really engage. This could be the nature of the effect though as it is fairly complicated and I don't quite understand completely how it works. The studio I work for bought this so fortunately I didn't have to shell out all that money. If I could afford my own, I would as it is worth every penny. Top notch Quality and sound on this Guitar. Moog seems to turn everything they touch into gold. I have used several guitars and also ebows. This unit combines them both extremely well. Yes, I would definitely buy another if I could.
The Moog Music Paul Vo Collector Edition Guitar was made in the USA and is an extremely unique guitar that I have only had the pleasure of playing twice in a store, but have heard used a good amount. The Moog Guitar is a revolutionary instrument, as no instrument like it has been made before. The settings controls are not your average guitar parameters, as this has knobs for Piezo Blend, Harmonic Balance, Master Volume, Tone, and 'Vo Power.' Once you pick up the guitar and play with the knobs, it is pretty easy to understand exactly what everything does.
The neck of the Moog Music Paul Vo Collector Edition Guitar is very fluid and is easy to play all along the neck, including way up on the top notes. The guitar is pretty heavy, but since it is your average guitar, this is to be somewhat expected. It is easy to get some great sounds from this, and the sounds are so varied that it really has endless possibilities.
The sound of the Moog Music Paul Vo Collector Edition Guitar is extremely unique, and is the first of its kind in that it truly sounds like a synth, but is truly a guitar. It has endless sustain, or no sustain at all, depending on how you set it, and overall it really is an incredibly versatile instrument. Since this guitar is so expensive, I was unable to try this guitar out with effects or different amps, as I have only used it in the store.
I tried out the Moog Music Paul Vo Collector Edition Guitar a few times within the last few months and have truly been blown away with the sounds that this can make. The price of this guitar makes it really impossible to buy or to find anyone who has one, but I was able to find a store that you can try it out at as I was really impressed with videos I saw from this guitar. If you can find someone or some place that has this guitar, it is truly a wonderful experience to play. Hopefully in the next few years the Moog Guitars will come down in price and be more realistic for the everyday customer.
