This is a great guitar!
Built quality is "vraiment extraordinaire, superbe, excellente, magnifique, admirable"!
The Vigiers have this unique 90/10 % neck system:
90% wood (maple) and 10% consisting of a glued in
carbon rod. No adjustable truss rod needed!
And ist works very well and contirbutes to a balanced sound. No dead spots anywhere.
The neck is very slim and "fast",
24 nice fat frets, impeccable fretwork!
The handle of this Kahler vibrato is a bit slack.
But it works perfectly.
The Kahler was upgraded by Patrice Vigier in that it moves on two ball bearings.
The body is beautifiul alder and light and resonant.
The pickups are DiMarzios ...
...don`t know exactly what models.
The electronics work smoothly.
The fat pickguard is a lightly tinted plastic mirror.
This guitar really is a shredder`s dream!
Gutsy, full, warm or firm, edgy and sparkeling...
whatever you need.
Humbuckers and / or singlecoils.
But it is not just for Metal or Progrock.
It sounds beautifully also clean and crunchy
and the neck humbucker can do jazz ...if you can.
It is really very versatile
and the Strat-alike
sounds in position 2 and 4 are convincing.
I gigged it several times. It was my very first real good guitar.
It is far better than the Gibson SG Standard in many respects, but only a total idiot would trade this Vigier in for an SG with an original autograph by Angus Young.
Only a guy like me.
