Re: When was the last update (if any) to the Excalibur Super 7 model?

Vigier have always undergone innovations...the 7's all share the most recent innovations;
Stainless Steel frets, Flexretainer, Zero-Fret-S, Teflon Nut. The Excalibur Special 7 was introduced in 2012 (and features the new Kill Switch) as well as French Flamed Maple top.

Re: When was the last update (if any) to the Excalibur Super 7 model?

Vigier are always evolving and innovating - a 2014 guitar will be amazing no matter any incremental changes since then.

I love my 2005 Ultra the best of all my guitars, even though it has many older features, it has just such a unique character.

Excalibur Indus - Stainless Frets?

Nice…yes, they look like SS frets.

Indeed, as stated, we did start using SS frets sometime in 2010, certainly everything in 2011 has SS frets.

Zero Fret Clicking Problem

I would say take it back to the dealer where you purchased to look at if under warranty - without looking or knowing the issue it is hard to say. The nut is 9-46 and can take 9-42, 9-46 or 10-46.

Zero Fret Clicking Problem

Have you kept to 9-42 or changed strings, if so did you change the nut too? You can try swapping the segments around...if not take it back to your dealer to inspect.

Best Vigier for Suhr/Jackson/ESP player?

Very easy then - you want to investigate the Excalibur Original, or if you prefer a Flamed Maple Top, then look at the Excalibur Custom.
