UTILIZATION

º On the handle is very comfortable, quite fast, though not as a flat round Ibanez, with a good cut that promotes access to acute. The action is set quite low, you have a perfect that it is rhythmic and solo comfort.
At fret work is very well done, at least on mine nothing to report.
º The lime is supposed to be fairly light, but here we are faced with a body mass Linden, and the beast is rather heavy (approximately 8kg I think), if you plan on doing concerts I advise you to have a very good strap otherwise it could quickly become annoying.
º It is very nice with a good cut somewhat reminiscent of the Eclipse in ESP (or EC-1000 if you tend LTD). The varnish is beautiful, with a binding that makes the full turn of the guitar: Body, neck and head. However, the varnish is very fragile, at least for me because it is the Satin Black model.

SOUNDS

The sounds are the big downside of this guitar, we are dealing with a rather good violin, suddenly necessarily economies are on the microphones ... We are given two EMG-HZ, impossible to lower end in EMG, they are hard to tame, once it is too fat, once it is too loud. In addition it is only built for the distortion, do not expect to play with her clean.
I've tried several amps with Fender Mustang II Peavey Valveking 112 Peavey Bandit 112, an old Musicman tube I do not know the ref, Blackstar HT-20. Whatever the amp, I've never really managed to get the sound I wanted to have.

OVERALL OPINION

VIG This was my first real guitar, I bought it in 2009, shortly before they changed their name to VGS, I was pretty young so I did not really know, and I took it for its aesthetic, nothing more.
Despite very poor microphones installed the violin is quite good, and the upgrade could be a very good idea.
With the experience I honestly do not do it again this purchase, bought at the time to € 280/290 I already find it rather expensive, and it is still more expensive as the VGS (€ 380 I think), at this price I think it is more interesting to focus on an Epiphone or LTD.

UTILIZATION

The handle is very nice, neither too late nor too thick, I prefer that of my old Epiphone G-400. It glides well, the touch is very nice and is quite fast.
Access to treble is good without being exceptional.
In terms of form is simply a copy of the ESP LTD Eclipse EC series ... just missing the chamfers on the back and behind the cutaway.
Aesthetically, it is very beautiful ... black satin, satin fittings and white binding gives it a classy look.
It is rather heavy (8 or 9 kg), but it is very well balanced, both for the game than sitting upright. It gives a good impression of strength and it does not mark easily (not like the g-400).
For sound, the knobs do their job perfectly.

I put 9 / 10 for the muzzle, which would also improve access to acute

SOUNDS

I play blues, rock and metal.
The EMG-HZ pickups are excellent.
It is a very versatile guitar.

The neck pickup delivers clear sounds very warm and mellow bridge pickup is drier, playing with the switch and knobs are easily obtained what we sought.

For saturation is a killer ... it is shaped to the big sound ... but it's still clean and well defined.

I plugs into a VOX AD30VT XL, torque is excellent. I get easily all types of audio and large loadings are from hell ... it sends strong, very strong.

Also this guitar has a great sustain.

OVERALL OPINION

I use this guitar for a few weeks and I must say it does not disappoint me ...
This is my fifth guitar
I like its looks and the fun game it offers.
I watch it I want to play ... I start and I do not stop.
I love the high quality of violin and microphones.
I bought it to wait before offering me an LTD EC-1000 ESP Eclipse is an altogether ... and I must say that it will make me wait very pleasantly!

I paid € 290 to my dealer
I find the price / quality ratio really excellent, and even the best available.

I noted in terms of its price ... it is clear that we be better off by adding 300 or € 400 (less is not).
I am very happy with my choice and I would do without hesitation.

" Hmm ..."

VIG Guitars EruptionPublished on 02/26/11 at 04:15
(This content has been automatically translated from French)
One we do not know the timber corp but I'd say the lime.
stick stuck (I do not know the wood either)
22 fret probably made in china
Micro emg (died after 2 years)

Good for a first guitar is gonna say
level finish is very nice

Cons by electronic level they have not found more economical, knob burnt in 2 me and not taken to secure shop, 80 euro fee Dessuti Youhou.

UTILIZATION

the handle is likeable style lp / TV I like, access to acute, as lespaul.
Ergonomics, lespaul bin.

At the beginning when the microphones worked fine, we get a good sound very sharp for me, it was nice.

SOUNDS

Versatile guitar anyway, it has emg yet it does not go to the metal, the emg are so rough......

SOUNDS

Versatile guitar anyway, it has emg yet it does not go to the metal, the emg are so rough ...

so before the beginning therefore, the sound was neutral, now I get a loud but clear sound just awful.

At first I was playing with a Peavey Bandit 112 that I have now, I've played with suru No tube amp, blackstar HT20. the difference was obvious, right on his transition, his lamp on the rotten, weird right?

In hindsight, I hate this guitar, it disgusted me to play limit.

OVERALL OPINION

I still end the year it'll be 3 years ... in a bag at the corner of one room of my house.

Guitar pretty good anyway, but I got the first model of the mark and probably wrong, here is why are so negative ... ocmmentaire

This is a very good guitar for beginners, I have no doubts, but it will not last long.
300 euro is too expensive for what it is! for this award is as much directed towards epiphone lp standard equipment, a 400 or a yam sg pacifica, which will be cheaper versatile and will last much longer with better sound and upgrades sympatic.

j'avous level but that style is really stylish ...

If it's not wanted I will not go that choice, but hey, I'm probably fell on a bad model!

" What a guitar!"

VIG Guitars EruptionPublished on 10/01/10 at 13:12
(This content has been automatically translated from French)
I have the 2009 model, just after it was written above yds (probably stories of lawyers ...).
Basswood body, rather unusual for the style (use this wood for Ibanez RG's) and my faith very relevant.
The neck is fairly wide, promotes accuracy, and its profile is not too big D stamped on the rounded, surprising at first, but comfortable.
Gibson is not typed at all anyway.

Emg hz passive pickups, excellent, and can be modif splitter through every son is there. I did it for the neck pickup for that matter, very interesting for its clear.

Two volumes, I Choute tone to put the split micro serious.

What is good with two volumes is that you can preset a crunch sound with the neck pickup......

What is good with two volumes is that you can preset a crunch sound with the neck pickup (flight 3) and full distortion sound with the treble and switch from one to another with the selector of one stroke of one!
Cool with a dual channel or mono amp.

UTILIZATION

The handle is comfortable to play very long, and passes much of his body. It is further strengthened on the back of the head during a fall is so valuable.
The weight of my vig, with a tremolo lestrem2, is 4130grammes (weighing bag type air ...) just 200 fewer than the original at first glance.
Good standing as sitting balance, but it's still heavy (my Lag Roxane 500 weighs only 2700 grams!), And it sounds elsewhere.

My model had the frets perfectly finished, which was not true of two other store so choose well considering the price of the maker.

The sound is splendid dry, not very balanced coincoin, notes fuse funk and rhythm are super stitched.

SOUNDS

Trendy it is confirmed, splendid clear sound and distos are both free, although seating and airy. Very good microphones, in any case much better than my seymour Roxane (SH4-sh1n) in that they have grain and extent, even splitted.

That said, it is normal with a short scale bass are less sturdy than my late baja telecaster for example, as far as the bridge tune-o-matic does not offer any opportunity to detune the guitar in D (If you want to play the harmonics). Therefore mandatory standard tuning except yourself.

This guitar likes to go straight into the amp, the multi-effects are not his thing too, because altering the character of the mics too.
I love a clean sound (reel handle side only), and distos out very well too.


OVERALL OPINION

I mounted a tremolo design, lestrem2 of curiosity, and although interesting I'll give the origin because rod bother me much.
In short this vig is well on its own, just for a split micro serious and it's perfect!

At this price level is staggering, far above epi-squier-harley-coxx and company.

This is not the same approach (cheap copy of an original is not so bad after all), it is a coherent and reasoned choice. We guess a team of designers who really understand something ...

A remake, I rush with your eyes closed (but open toes to feel the frets ...)!
