Get amazing sound onstage courtesy of LR Baggs VTC electronics
The Gibson Slash J-45 Standard comes with LR Baggs's VTC acoustic pickup system — a popular choice among acoustic guitarists . This system features a low-profile under-saddle transducer that's proven more stable and durable than many standard ribbon-type pickups. Its sleek and effective design removes unnecessary internal components to enhance the coupling between the pickup and the guitar and improve the sensitivity of the transducer for a robust, lively, and natural acoustic sound with excellent dynamics and delicate high end. Combined with an onboard preamplifier with an unobtrusive and removable volume control mounted just inside the soundhole, the VTC gives your Slash J-45 Standard a pure-sounding amplification presence.
