"French Alternative"

Vigier Expert Retro 54Published on 07/09/11 at 13:12
This is basically the French alternative ti the fender Stratocaster. These guitars are built probably much better than any Fender made today. this would be the equivalent to a custom shop Fender Stratocaster. These guitars are build with the highest standards available. The quality of workmanship is one of the best in the world. You won't be able to find many builder who take this kind of approach to guitar building.

SOUNDS

These guitars sound absolutely amazing. They have been extremely popular over in Europe but recently becoming more and more popular over in the States. Many artist are already using these guitars and some very big names at that. So they must be to the highest standards of touring and recording professionals.

These guitars have a great tone to them that you would find on boutique builders shops. The resonate with the most dynamic touch of the fret board. They respond to the figures of the player in a way that feels like they were made just for you personally.

OVERALL OPINION

These guitars are not cheap by any means. I am not sure of the exact price for this model but I have seen similar ones for around $3000. That is a hefty price or a guitar but this is basically a custom guitar. Much like a Suhr or Anderson as far as the superstrats. If you get a chance to play one you won't be disappointed. These are some of the best out there in the market.
