Re: Kaos et downtuning

I don't see why not, there's 25.5 scale 7 string guitars out there .... Using the Kaos, with a 12-54 set, you get 90lbs tension in that tuning you mention. In that example, it's a bit floppier on the bass strings than usual, so maybe low strings could go a bit heavier gauge. Anyway, you can experime...

Tremolo 2011, G string and saddle

some close up pics may also give some hints ...

are both screws of that saddle touching the tremolo base, or is the saddle "one-leg" like a pirate?

Vigier GV Wood OR GV Rock 

For what it's worth, my amber finish GV Wood is #102. I haven't removed the neck though, so no idea which date may be stamped.

There's another amber GV Wood in Madrid (another owner), which is #101.

you'll be amazed how long it stays in tune, and how resonant it is once you put fresh strings on her.
