« The original death metal guitar »

Publié le 06/08/11 à 19:00
Vigier is usually known for their superstrat guitars, but they have one special guitar in their lineup - the Marilyn. This guitar is a total death metal machine meant to blast away any girly rocker that comes its way. The guitar features a uniquely contoured and cutout body, alder body wood, a maple neck with phenowood fretboard, 24 frets, a hard tail bridge, two uniquely played humbuckers, one volume, one tone and a three way switch.

UTILIZATION

Looks aside, the first feature that stands out with this guitar would probably be the zero fret system. This allows you to have more consistent and stable action than with a normal fret setup. It also adds consistency in tone, allowing the open notes to sound similar to a fretted note. The guitar is nicely put together, the fretwork is top notch, and there's actually no truss rod inside this guitar. Instead, there's a combination of carbon and maple that helps make this thing stable ... or something. I'm not really sure how it works, but you can read about it on Vigier's website.

SOUNDS

The guitar is a take no prisoners style guitar. There are dual X2Ns in this thing, and those are some of the hottest pickups in existence. The X2N in the bridge gives a clear, bitey and powerful tone that'll overdrive any amp out there into a super high gain death machine. The X2N in the middle is kinda unique, but I find this one to be a bit useless. I'm a fan of fat and warm neck tones to allow for easier legato. The X2N in the middle is the exact opposite of this, and I kinda struggled with it a bit.

OVERALL OPINION

Those of you who are Necrophagist fans will probably know this guitar. It's a unique guitar that stands out in the Vigier lineup. They're normally known for superstrat guitars, but this metal machine should easily fit in even the most brutal grindcore band out there. Check it out if you get a chance, but they're kinda hard to come across if you don't have a Vigier dealer in your neck of the woods.
