Vigier est is one of the brands with the most consistent production quality we know. Created by Patrice Vigier in 1980, it is a French Custom Shop that produces 400-500 high-end electric guitars and basses per year. Established in Grigny, Essonne, Vigier is known for incorporating technical innovations such as the 90/10 carbon-reinforced neck that no longer requires a truss-rod, the zero fret for a homogenous sound, and no friction a the nut, and the Vigier ball bearing system for the vibratos. In terms of lutherie, alder, maple, and ash come from French forests; rosewood comes from India, and mahogany is from Honduras. The woods are sorted, steamed, and then naturally dried for 3 to 7 years for perfect stability and resonance, and the fingerboard is machined within 1/100th of a millimeter. Each instrument is built impeccably, finished and tuned in the workshop, and delivered in a premium case.
The Vigier Passion IV 5-String is a top-of-the-range model of the brand, which is moreover only that: top-of-the-range. Its alder body with a flamed maple top, and the screwed maple neck set with a touch of phenowood (a composite material made of wood and resin, whose performance is comparable to that of ebony, while being much easier to maintain), are made from selected woods that have dried for a period that guarantees optimal resonance, and reliability at all times.
Custom Vigier pickups, controlled by an active preamp, are very versatile. This bass is made for pros, from those who play one day on a pop alum, and the next day replace the bassist of a metal band in concert. A Teflon nut and Schaller mechanics finish the whole, to form an ergonomic and pleasant ensemble that offers a range of epic tones in all music styles.
We propose it with a two year warranty from our workshop.
