Superb guitar made in France, 24 dunlop frets, EMG 85 pickups fitted, SA, 81, high output.
Schaller vibrato is very nice and "end" to handle, personally after 4 years of use it has not aged.
it dipose volume, tone and a 5-way switch
When his sleeve and is maple with a carbon rod, and really it does not move!


This neck is amazing, comfortable, fluid, soft, you feel at ease right away, the flare is just right, it's a true compromise between several races I think, the only downside to my taste, it is the Dunlop frets that wear out quickly, but this little problem was solved because you leave Vigier uses frets more resistant.
Access to acute is the hands down, bend a pest in 24 th box with EMG it kills!
equilibrium level, be it sound or the guitar there is nothing wrong, no default, it is light and fun to play both sitting and standing.
With regard to the sound, there will be full of different opinions, overall, I would say that the sound of the EMG + sound that this guitar offers due to the essence of its wood will sound very clean and this, in my taste a little cold, but clean sound is very clean with very good low in saturated it can go far, personal, on my dual rectify it gives!


This guitar just be versatile enough, if you have a minimum of hardware, I mean by that to use all of its sounds drop the amp transistors, and nothing at all light it so that it is expressed in different style, you can get great clean sound with some delay and reverb and it is not going to let some suites jazz or blues, for the crunch is the same thing, when saturated with the sounds, c ' is possible to operate all the styles, she always answers this for a good metal riff with a very good definition of the agreements.


It is now four years since I have this model but the reason I want to part with it is that I have discovered another type of handle that convientmieux me, what I like least about the negative points it is the frets are small for my taste dunlop), that is why I think it is better suited to handle a type of play legato, sweeping and tapping.
I have tried many different models, Music Man Axis, Ibanez JEM, Lag Arkane, Ibanez RG, Gibson ... but when we try a guitar Vigier we are always impressed with the ease of playing, it differs widely among other brands, the day I bought it, I play an hour and I been conquered.
Finally, it is a great guitar worthy of a fine violin, well maintained nothing moves on this model, 4 years ago this model was worth € 1990, then to its current price no comment!
If I had to make another choice, I takes an eyes closed but with passive pickups.
