Vigier Introduces G.V. Series Guitars
Vigier introduced a new addition to its lineup: the G.V., described as "the very first single-cutaway guitar" the company has created.
The G.V. is a tribute to Georges Vigier, who contributed to Vigier Guitars for over 20 years.
By using the company's 10/90 system (10% carbon/90% wood), Vigier has created a guitar designed to offer balanced response, power, no dead spots on the fingerboard, and lasting sustain.
The G.V. has a zero fret and Teflon nut, designed to create less friction, to allow strings to glide across the nut, and to provide better stability in tuning. Depending on the model, the G.V.'s electronics will include a pair of either Amber or DiMarzio humbucking pickups that are activated by a 5-way pickup selector switch.
For this new series, Vigier has developed a bridge and tailpiece that can be locked in place once the setup is completed.
The G.V. Series includes three models: G.V.Metal, G.V.Rock, G.V.Wood. All instruments are handcrafted using alder and maple.
