    Anyone has any experience with this model?
    Have just recently found out about and it is looking soooo high end, practically as a perfectly made guitar.
    Carbon neck through, phenowood fretboard, vibrato as a tank.......

    unfortunately Vigier is rather rare around these parts...I've been thinking about a few I've seen on Reverb, I've never tried one but I am GASing hard.

    I only have experience with their Excalibur models, but they are phenomenal.

    I've got 3 Vigier guitars, they are all awesome. I can only assume the basses would be as good.

    these are very very rare. also if you found one you'd have trouble finding replacement parts if needed.
    i have a marilyn model that shares the same hardware. they also have a preamp (6 modi) on board.
    the fine tuners are located at the nut, the neck is very narrow.
    acoustically/dry they are loooouuud, prolly because of all the carbon used for the neck.
    i wanted to buy the guitar pictured above few years ago, but the seller didn't want to ship internationally.

    I've had a Marilyn in my hands aaaages ago and can not remember how dit if felt like...
    I could imagine that getting spare parts would turn out to be a pain in the ass.
    The guitar you've posted is awesome looking, too bad you didn't get to buy it. I find the red bodied ones the most visiually appealing.
