New Vigier Excaliber

Had to sell my PGM and my Jackson to get it, but nothing i've ever played comes close to a Vigier, and i've always regretted letting go of the ones i had in the past.
So here she is:

I always thought it was Vai - Gear...

I always loved these guitars, always wanted to try a surfretter (but scarred to death of it!) and a SL sig with the 0 radius.

I've heard it pronounced this way by a dealer:

"Vij-air"

so that's usually how i say it-

but i'm not positive what the correct pronunciation is.

Someday i want a Surfretter, but that'll have to wait.

I had a Sl sig, and the 0 radius is a bit freaky at first, but you can get used to it. That guitar also has a shorter scale (24 and something), and extremely low action. The combo of the radius, action, and scale length makes it probably the easiest playing guitar you can get. Maybe too easy though...

Its been said that the SL sig has the lowest playable action possible on any guitar ever made....and that just blows my mind if its true.

Definitely the lowest action of any guitar i've ever played. all you have to do is touch the string and you're playing the note...

Re: New Vigier Excaliber

You can't get any lower than a zero radius neck. I would love to try an SL sig. And I always pronounced it Veej-air.

Re: New Vigier Excaliber

Absolutely flat fretboard, no curve to it. You can get the action really low because you will not fret out when you bend.
