Both the Single Cutaway (SSC) and Double Cutaway (SDC) solid-body guitars embody the same design philosophy as the original VOX Virage. Combining advanced production methods with hands-on craftsmanship results in a superior instrument that is remarkably playable, yet versatile enough to provide you with your own personal voice.

3-D Body Contouring
State-of-the-art carving methods provide the 55 solid-body instruments with a contoured body that fits naturally and comfortably, whether you prefer to play sitting or standing. The top surface is also perfectly carved, resulting in additional playing comfort and a distinguished look. The set neck features an inverse heel design and deep cut that offers unobstructed access to the upper frets. The distinctive headstock and the bound fingerboard are inlaid with the winged "S" shape mother-of-pearl.

Superior String Handling
The advanced MaxConnect™ aluminum bridge features extended saddle travel for flawless intonation with any gauge string. The full contact shape and light weight combine to deliver thick, rich tone with clear, singing harmonics. Strings slide in from under the back edge of the bridge to make changing strings a snap. Our VOX Super Smooth tuners offer enhanced tuning stability, so you can play with confidence. The mahogany necks are finished with rosewood fingerboards.

Rich, Refined Tone
Each of the three pickup elements in our new CoAxe pickups delivers a unique and sophisticated tone, yet each one remains whisper-quiet. By combining different pickups with different settings, the 55 solid-body guitars offer a deep range of tonal choices. The passive analog tone circuitry offers both a Master Volume and a Master Tone control to refine your individual sound. The controls are easy to use and logically laid out, allowing fast changes during performance.

SSC/SDC--55 SS SEMI-Solid-Body Guitars
The Series 55 Semi-Solid (SS) guitars offer an innovative design based on our unique weight-saving and tone-enhancing internal chambers. Both the Single Cutaway (SSC-55 SS) and Double Cutaway (SDC-55 SS) Semi-Solid guitars embody the VOX design philosophy of combining advanced modern production methods with irreplaceable hands-on craftsmanship. Available exclusively in a dramatic Transparent Black finish, which provides the Series 55 SS models with a unique identity. The finish has been carefully applied to leave a revealed edge of natural Maple around the top, providing a dramatic “binding” appearance. The premium ebony fingerboards are inlaid with the authentic abalone dot position markers.
