Vox

A mahogany body with set neck, two-voice mini-humbuckers and high-end innovations.

The VOXSDC22 Double-Cutaway Solidbody Electric Guitar is a serious guitar, at an affordable price. This double-cutaway model borrows production techniques, styling cues, and uses many of the same distinguished components found in the premium VOX Virage, Series 77, Series 55, and Series 33 guitars. Combining advanced modern production methods with irreplaceable hands-on craftsmanship results in a superior instrument that is remarkably playable; yet versatile enough to provide you with your own personal voice.

Available in popular finishes, the VOX Series 22 features a bold, double cutaway design. State-of-the-art 3-D carving methods provide the Series 22 with a contoured body that ensures impeccable comfort and fatigue-free playing. The SBE™ (Strap Button Extension) system delivers enhanced instrument balance while playing standing. The set neck features an inverse heel design and deep cut that offers unobstructed access to the upper frets. Position dot markers adorn the rosewood fingerboard.

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. Sealed VOX tuners offer enhanced tuning stability, so you can play with confidence. The mahogany necks are finished with a rosewood fingerboard.

Potent Pickup Design
Each Series 22 guitar is outfitted with two of our XLM™ (Xtra Loud Mini) compact humbucking pickups. Use the pickup mode switch to choose a tight, punchy lead tone or more open, chordal voice. Using the three-way pickup switch, you can select either pickup individually, or use them both together. The passive analog tone circuitry offers both a Master Volume and a Master Tone control to refine your individual sound. Logically laid out and easy to use, the controls allow fast changes during performance.

    I bought the Vox Sdc-22 on a whim. I was looking around for a guitar to get for Christmas and they had it on sale so I jumped the gun and bought it. I got the guitar and the first impression upon looking it over is that it's not only gorgeous, but the build quality is nearly flawless! The finish is even and there are no perfections anywhere, which is quite unusual for most of the asian-made set neck guitars I've had experience with. Aside from build quality the overall design of the guitar is quite impressive. Not only is the 3d countouring beautiful and comfortable, Vox also added very small details in like small countouring around the tone knob due to the curvature of the guitar and they even went far enough as to give this guitar one of the cleanest control cavities of any guitar I've ever seen. Aside from the asthetic and build quality the guitar sounds and plays wonderfully! The pickups are nice and warm like humbuckers should be but they have just enough of that single coil-like charecter to make them worth listening to, which is probably a result of their similarity to mini-humbuckers, and the neck is smooth as butter aswell as being the perfect contour for fast jass playing or rock shreding. The guitar is also unusually light but it's just the perfect weight so that it is light but the body isn't underweighted by the neck. Now that I've covered all the good about the guitar I'll mention the few cons of the guitar. Essentially, there were only two flaws to this guitar. The first is not exactly a flaw but rather a preference. The bridge was just slightly high and, as a result, not all of the guitars charecter was being amplified and it didn't quite play as fast as it could; however, this is a relitive thing because the stock action would be great for anybody who wanted to use the guitar for both normal and uses aswell as slide and the adjustment was immensely easy to do. The other imperfection I've noticed was that the coil tapping mini-toggle was cutting out on the humbucker settings when I first got it but after fiddling with it for a while I learned that there was merely a dirty contact and the problem was solved by simply switching the mini-toggle a good few times to clean away the dirt and now it works perfectly. This guitar is a total dream to play and look at and the pickups produce tones that I preffer to many I've heard form companies like Gibson and Epiphone. If you're looking for a Gibson-esque guitar but with a bit more tonal charecter and originallity then I'd highly reccomend this guitar regardless of any price point you're searching in. You simply will not be dissapointed.

    Ordered a sunburst color, and I agree with previous reviewer. It was an ugly orange burst color. I returned it without unwrapping the paper from the strings and testing the guitar on an amp. I had to pay for the return shipping myself.

    I got a red one when the guitar went on sale. The color and finish is very good, and I do not see any flaws. No need for extra set up, and the guitar plays well from he box with no fret buzz. The hardware is excellent and it stays tune very well. Unlike the SDC33, this guitar is not neck heavy, and it is balanced.

    The pick ups unfortunately are the low points on this guitar. They sound very trebly and get muddy with distortion. As other reviewers have commented, these are mini pickups which are hard to change.

    It comes with a thin gig bag which works well as a dust cover.

        Comments about Vox SDC22 Double-Cutaway Solidbody Electric Guitar:

        The first thing I noticed about this guitar was the fit and finish. The guitar I received was perfect! Very impressed. The finish (white) was flawless and the fingerboard looked nice and wet.
        This guitar has a handful of proprietary parts (i.e. bridge, tuning machines, knobs) that I really like. The metal has a satin finish, which I feel sets it apart from other guitars. The tuner buttons are unique as well (not super comfy on your fingers, but they look sweet and work well). I've heard some people say that the SDC-22 looks too much like a SG, but there are clear differences when you see the guitar in person. I think it's a better design, if you ask me... more comfortable and weighted better.
        The playability right out of the box impressed me too. Seems like most of these can use a little drop of the bridge, and then they're ready to rock. The "inverse neck joint" is so cool. You can really get up to those high notes with ease on this guy.
        This Vox sounds fantastic too! The mix of the set neck, bridge and mini humbuckers gives it nice sustain and a sweet tone. I like how Vox equipped it with a mini-toggle that bumps up the volume/output of the pickups. It is quite useful if you play harder rock.
        Overall, I am very happy with my purchase. I really don't have any complaints.

            I own 32 guitars and this has the most unique tone. It has a real musical tone not similar to any guitar I've played. Addictive to play, hard to put down.Very light also, right out of the box plays perfectly with no issues. It is astonishingly well built with no visible flaws. The high notes jump off the board and SING!

            This VOX plays and sounds really smooth, with various sound options on the pickups -- accurate frets even up to the high end. It is a little neck-heavy and easier to play sitting rather than standing with a strap. The tuners are good quality, volume pot is sensitive. All said great deal for the price.

              Comments about Vox SDC22 Double-Cutaway Solidbody Electric Guitar:

              I had to lower the bridge to get great action. I did notice that the Guitar's Imput Jack has some play to it. It didn't affect the plugged in sound but it still has a little play. almost like you can push it in about 1/8" but even when I pushed it the guitar did not buzz or lose sound just something I didn't like very much.

                    First let me warn anyone who will purchase and expect the Sunburst color to look like the TEA BURST which is actually advertised, you will receive an uglier yellow faded into black tone on the guitar. That aside, the sound was underwhelming. There was really only one usable pickup position with the rest being very shrill and treble heavy. The guitar felt good but not professional. Guitar needed a set up, would njot stay in tune. Over all not a bad guitar for the sale price but I am returning mine.

                      Picked up this one on sale. I have the sunburst, and it is beautiful. I play better on this than my other guitars from the start. Action needed a little adjusting for my taste. I am purchasing another one of these today in white. Perfect Intermediate guitar. If I could afford the 1000 Vox guitars I would get those. These guitars are beautiful and amazing, and come with a bag.
