Hello and everybody welcome my new vigier
This thing plays like absolute butter, its insane!!!!! The stainless steel frets are absolutely stunning, so little friction it feels like like im going to snap the string when I bend them. The finish on the neck is something that has to be felt to be believed, its like velvet.
The neck profile is perfect, like my mayones but more rounded, and the flame is subtle but noticeable. the 2011 tremolo on roller bearings is great, im no fan of trems but I used to use a lot of floyds and this is easily as good as a floyd.
the pickups are wonderful, the bridge is quite sharp and attacky without being to powerful or loud, the neck is really warm without sounding muddy. I havent quite got the hang of the kill switch. Through a clean amp, the split coils tones nearly made we wee, they were soo sharp and full of meaning through my laney LC30.
Acoustically its very loud, through an amp it sustains as well as my mayones setius (a stringthrough mahogany lump) and evem more amazing considering its specs.
The quality is. well, vigier!! I bought this as an ex-demo and its its great shape. It has apparently been in a case in a store room for the last few months. Theres some light polish swirls but thats about it.
After all this though, im not definitely sure, ill keep it as im gassing hard for another mayones, a 7 string regius in white! You may see a FS thread soon.
Though for the time being happy NGD
