Vigier is a French brand, founded by Patrice Vigier in 1980, specialized in the manufacture of high end electric guitars and basses. Located in Grigny, in the Essonne department, the brand has built a reputation for its rigorous manufacturing methods, partially by hand and partially with machines, like a Custom Shop would operate, with production cycles lasting between 3 to 5 months, depending on the model. The wood species like alder, maple of ash come from the French forests, rosewood from India and mahogany from Honduras. Woods are selected, and let dry naturally between 3 to 7 years in order to reach the foreseen water content for a perfect resonance. Guitar bodies are built from two pieces of wood. The fretboard is rectified to 1/100 millimeter and contains a carbon rod which avoids the use of a trussrod (90/10 system with 90% wood and 10% carbon), that initially was a source of perplexities, but has finally been well accepted and a proven and reliable technology by generations of users. Finally, Vigier relies on a number of external top end hardware and pickups suppliers for a production that reaches approx. 500 units on a yearly base.
The Excalibur Kaos model is part of the Excalibur big family, introduced in 1991, designed as a super Strat with an ultra precise floating bridge vibrato. Initially featuring a HSS config., the model has quickly evolved towards new configurations (HSH, HH, etc.), colors and pickup variations corresponding to the requests and needs of guitar freaks. The Kaos model is clearly the result if this approach. Equipped with 2 splittable humbuckers and a five-way switch, this instrument is a super versatile machine that can jump from single coil to heavy humbucker sounds that cover most of the hard rock/metal territory, thank to its Amber pickups. With black finish and the reverse headstock, this guitar generates an agressive and powerful look which is nice and impressive. Equipped with a zero fret and a floating bridge, she delivers an agressive and powerful sound for those who like thin necks with precise and flat fretboards, allowing fast and furious solistic works.
A nice guitar for the races with an eye-catching look. We propose it with a two year warranty from our workshop.
