Vigier Excess walnut finish

<p>As an owner of Excess (since 2004) and Arpege (since 2011), my dream 4 string Vigier bass guitar would probably be:<br /><br />- An Excess bass;</p> <p>- stock Benedetti pickups from the Excess;</p> <p>- the preamp from the Arpege (i.e. three band EQ for each pickup which is just brilliant); ...

What strings do you like to use on your Vigier guitar?

<r><p>Vigier basses in my case!<br /><br />I have had sets of D'Addario Balanced Tension 120-50 on my Excess for the last 5 years or so. Terrific for lower tuned rock. THere are really very few good sets of strings for bassists who use alternate tunings (drop C/D standard or classic C# Black Sa...

NAMM 2015: The legendary Excess Original gets an upgrade!

Ooh, I'm very excited by this. I love my Excess but I sometimes find the pickups to be a bit noisy when adding overdrive and some other effects. I will probably look at getting the upgrade too. Will be interested on hearing about the price for the upgrade.

What Bass Amp for Excess Roger Glover Signature?

<r><p>Hello. I don't have the Roger Glover model, but I have had an Excess for almost 9 years. Personally I think that the Excess sounds best when played through a hybrid/all valve amp that doesn't have a lot of pre-shapes and extra eq which in my opinion detracts from the natural sound of...

Post what F/X you use here...

<r><font size="2">I have started using the Aguilar Agro pedal, a big improvement over the sansamp and the boss pedals, which tended to take away from the natural tone of the bass. It seems that the more I gig, the more simple my set up. Since I last replied on this thread I now just use: Vigier Exce...

Heavier gauge of strings on 4-string Excess?

I've just started a new band using slightly lower and alternate tunings. I was wondering if * heavier strings to my bass would in anyway compromise the stability of the neck, given the lack of truss rod? Since Vigier don't make make strings beyond 50-105, I just want to know things will be...
