I noticed that Vigier has two different versions of the 2011 tremolo Non-locking), being the 2011 and 2011+.
The Vigier 2011+ tremolo seems to have a brass block and a different cosmetic top (non-matte baseplate and simple laser engraved Vigier logo) compared to the 2011 tremolo.
However, I have also seen a "2010" tremolo mentioned. Are there any details on this? Is it identical to the 2011 tremolo?
Also, is the 2011+ compatible with the 2011 tremolo (I assume so)?
Thank you

The difference between the 2010 and 2011 is the size of the vibrato bar, 5mm to 6mm.
2011 and 2011+ are compatible
The 2011+ is machined, all parts are brass, also screws are stainless steel, other details like the ability to change the bearing system have been improved.

Thank you Patrice. Valuable information.

Is it still easy to change the bearing system in the original 2011 tremolo? I purchased a replacement bearing for the 2011 tremolo recently. 

Also, in your estimation, how long would the bearing last, generally speaking?

I assume it is much better than pivot points with regular 2-point tremolos.

Thanks again

It is not easy to replace the bearing on the 2011 vibrato, this is something we improved on the 2011+
It you do not messe up with the system (break it while adjusting the height, because you did not unlock the front screw) the system will last longer than yourself.
