Vigier Passion IV Custom Bass - SOLD - click on picture to open gallery

Not had one of these before, or any Vigier either – extremely impressed….
They’re hand-made in France, and have been in business for over 40 years. During that time they have really pioneered work using graphite and wood and have won many awards, and have top artists using their products.
This bass is a Vigier Passion IV Custom in almost mint condition (a tiny ding on the end of the headstock, barely noticeable and otherwise perfect), and comes with the original Vigier embossed case, tools, manual and badge!
The neck uses 10% graphite and 90% wood for the perfect combination of stiffness but with a warm wood tone without the harshness of a full graphite neck. Not having a truss rod means the neck is particularly resonant and responsive, with no dead spot. The neck is known for its total stability, regardless of climate or gauge of strings.
The overall quality is fantastic and immediately obvious when seeing and playing the bass. The fret work is some of the finest I’ve ever seen.
Here’s some general info:
“Vigier are World renown for their use of Graphite in the necks of their basses, pioneering the concept back in the 1980s.
The new 90/10 system gives you the undeniable stiffness of the graphite but with the warmth and added tonality of wood – the perfect combination! With its pickups mounted towards the bridge the tone is aggressive and punchy,
but the pickups have plenty of depth and bass for a full tone. This bass is just alive when played and the neck is one of the slimmest and easier four string necks available.
The Flame Maple top and back are beautiful and the construction is faultless.
