Grandpierre's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" The best, I love it"

Vigier Excalibur Original HSH
The color is blue with Urban key in rosewood. Floyd is licensed Vigier ball bearing, and handle a / their famous system 90 10. HSH configuration, this technique are Seymour Duncan I think.

UTILIZATION

The best round I know, thanks to carbon, it never moves despite large variations in the Canadian climate! This is probably the handle that makes the guitar is so great (see notice of Bumblefoot).
The balance of the guitar is really excellent in the game standing and ergonomics also. The sound is excellent unplugged thanks to the quality of the violin. For the rest, it is a matter of taste for microphones. The original ones are very versatile for my taste and are well suited to different styles I play (Big rock, blues, funk, etc..) Like the original split simple microphones, especially in the middle position clean.

SOUNDS

See above. With my old band, I plugged it directly into the Boss GT-10 and it was very good. I also had a Mesa Boogie Express 5:25, a very good supplement for versatility.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for 15 years and this is my second guitar, the first being a Mexican Telecaster that I do not like (bad ergonomics corp and the handle, it really is a skyscraper which dates from the '50s ...) but I always have.
All other guitars I've tried, it is by far the best for all its qualities. I would do this choice with his eyes closed so I had fun over the years with this guitar!

bbhack's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" The superstrate made in France"

Vigier Excalibur Original HSH
Homemade French (at least at the time). Moreover, in 92 there were only two models rested: the original and custom (with a table and finish most successful)

The rest of the features are rather well known legendary handle 90/10, maple fingerboard, alder body "artificially aged" set MSM Saymour Duncan, vibrato Khaller amended by Vigier, split microphones on intermediate positions ....

UTILIZATION

It is an instrument that is in my opinion a reference in terms of ergonomics and comfort.
This applies to the handle but for everything else, except perhaps for the volume knob which is placed a little too high for my taste and requires a little time to adapt.
I also loved the "small changes" made by Vigier such as the principle of "coin 5F" replacing Allen key for changing strings at both the nut as vibrato, or the fact we can keep the ball on the strings.
Casually, this is probably the guitar "floyd" the best thought of the time.
I would add that it is also an instrument almost impossible to tune, even if you force the vibrato on a sustained and very little gallantry.

SOUNDS

We are in the presence of a pure product of the 90's designed for a fairly neutral sound should work upstream on the amplification chain. Remember it was the heyday of racks of all kinds, and the hack sound velocity manly ;).
In this register the Excalibur excels. on the other hand therefore we would like to make more of its roots (read two pedals and a small tube amp) is less obvious to find his account.
Indeed it is a superstrate, the guitar "go anywhere" and the character was sacrificed on the altar of versatility. A little too much for my taste.
At the same time I think it is set Saymour sth and that may be a change of pickups could bring little more missing.

OVERALL OPINION

Bought in '92, played a lot of 92 to '02, sold there qq days.
This is my first guitar "pro" and I confess that I find it difficult to criticize so she gave me sensations.
Regarding the value, I would say that is huge for this item. In 20 years it happened once in the luthier for setting and yet is because I was too lazy to adjust the floyd myself.
For the rest it was a lot of concerts, recordings and repets, qq travel with variations of temperature and humidity fairly consistent, never ask concern. For the time 5600FF represents approximately 1.1 minimum wage I would say it is even quite exceptional. I do not know the recent copies, however I find that they are much more expensive (> 2x the minimum wage) and for that price you can find other guitars "luthier" that was not the case in the time.
In any case I hope that "my" copy will delight its acquirer because it is an instrument that begs to be utlise and it makes it really good.

oregon1's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Thank you Mr VIGIER!!"

Vigier Excalibur Original HSH
Made in France!

FLOYD easel

Carbon rod with handle

Acute easily accessible

Effective dial

UTILIZATION

The handle is not pleasant ... It is THE race!

Unique, incomparable.

I have other guitars brand, but it certainly is not for sale!

0 fault!

And Mr. French is a guitar!

SOUNDS

All styles, it digests all styles. This versatility is rare.

The clean sound is fabulous.

I play on VOX amp

In saturated sounds, it excels.

frankkyz's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Vigier Excalibur Original HSH
...

UTILIZATION

handle very nice, beautiful wood screws without setting but we need not reach the ropes to very low without breaking the head to adjust the handle
it is very thin and lightness
yes the access to acute is easy they would defo one of the round on the body where there is the screw that holds the handle

SOUNDS

With this guitar you can do everything Hard rock Heavy, thrash, jazz etc. .. the sound is also good with or without distortion not like some good guitars which are one or the other

OVERALL OPINION

It's been 3 years since I used
I have six guitars Jackson soloist, deluxe fender, ibanez and 2 that I have made (out of competition) i have bought and sold a lot since I was 14 to my 34 years but this one is probably my favorite.
I love everything except the price can be (like all the rest good guitars)
