Re: PRS Guitar

I used to say all trems are such a pain in the ass that they are not worth it...

then I learned to play a bit better and I can tune fast and damna accurate by ear so it's not too much of a hassle

Re: PRS Guitar

Yeah they are. I've been using them for 10 years and I was thinking of not using them anymore. When I bought my UV7PWH off Rich, It changed my mind. He set it up so good that I actually like the trem now.

Re: PRS Guitar

PRS guitars started to suck a bit after around 93 when they went to mass production with machines. The necks lack *the* feel, since they don't bother to sand them down to perfection anymore. Also they only check the wood for tops for how much it's figured, not if it looks good. Vigiers are excellent guitars, with without doubt the best necks available today and very exclusive. Every guitar they build doesn't leave the factory until it's perfect. Vigier won't expand and compromise the guitars' quality so that's why there's a 4-5 month wait at the moment, but it's well worth it. My Excalibur Original was way below the Ibanez high-end price range and you'll get a much better built guitar at Vigier. They keep the prices down by streamlining the production process...6-string guitarwise there are only 2 bodyshapes and a 7 string.
You can choose locking or non-locking Schaller made ballbearing trems, DiMarzio, SDuncan or EMG pups, flametop or no top, which all depends on the specific model. They don't do custom guitars, but using different pickups from those same brands isn't a problem.
The Shawn Lane model is 2600 Euros ... I don't know if all of them are sold now, only 25 are being built.
You can drop a line to Patrice Vigier in the forum there. He'll always answer, which is a good thing.

Re: PRS Guitar

Wow, i was checking out those Vigier ...those look unbelievable, specially the Shawn Lane model.... i couldnt find the price however, anyone could help me out?
I know youll be probably be saying "What is up whit this guy? can he just get up and look up for those prices himself?" The thing is i live in Colombia - South America, and the local distribuitors really dont take so many chances with "Unknown" brands, so they just bring the usual stuff, Jackon, Washburn, etc... so i dont have access to those type of information...
Thanks...
