The Moog Guitar, Model E1

Now In Production      18/08/09

Here's an overview video for the Moog Guitar, Model E1.

The Model E1 is the production model of The Moog Guitar. It uses the same electronics and pick-ups as the original Paul Vo Collector Edition.

It’s available in three new finishes; Butterscotch, Candy Red and Black, and now sports chrome hardware, a solid alder body and a choice of fixed or tremolo bridges.

Moog notes five features that make the Moog Guitar unique:

  • FULL SUSTAIN MODE - like no other sustainer; infinite sustain on every string, at every fret position and at any volume.
  • CONTROLLED SUSTAIN MODE - allows you to play sustained single or polyphonic lines without muting technique. The Moog Guitar sustains the notes you are playing while actively muting the strings you are not playing.
  • MUTE MODE - removes energy from the strings, resulting in a variety of staccato articulations.
  • HARMONIC BLENDS - use the included foot pedal to shift the positive energy of Vo Power in Sustain mode and the subtractive force of Vo Power in Mute mode between the bridge and neck pick-ups to pull both subtle and dramatic harmonics from the strings.
  • MOOG FILTER - control the frequency of the built-in, resonant Moog ladder filter using the foot pedal or a CV Input.

Full details on the Moog E1 are available at the Moog Music site.

Congratulations to Moog for creating a product that absolutely nobody was clamoring for.

That takes a special kind of guts.

I would argue that one could get more interesting sounds playing a Squier with an ebow, running it through a POG, then into an Adrenalinn.

couldn't disagree with spoony anymore!!! this is something that can completely change the guitar from here on out. as a guitar and synth player this blows my mind. can't wait to get one! I also love the peizo in the saddle idea that's crazy. I am enthralled with this.

Anyone that feels that the Moog guitar is a guitar synth or thinks that they can replicate its sound with off the shelf effects is wrong. This technology is brand new.

I think this points out one very important fact, "They haven't had a chance to PLAY this very expansive instrument!"

This guitar is amazing and filled with inspiring tones and sonic textures.

The Moog Guitar fills the void between Traditional Guitars, Moogerfoogers and other Moog products because it can except Control Voltage waveforms to influence the circuits within the guitar to do unexpected things. This concept of experiencing the unexpected is what drove Bob Moog to create such unique products!
