LR Baggs Electronics

To obtain the Gibsons natural output this guitar is installed with an LR Baggs VTC system.

Low, mid and high frequency compressors are built in and respond in real time to your playing dynamics.

For more control, the pickup itself is designed to mirror the movement of your soundboard while you play, whilst discrete volume and tone controls allow you to easily sculpt your sound on the go.
