The new groundbreaking Arpege Bass [ Winter NAMM 2008 ]
13 December 2007 — Vigier Guitars has redesigned the elegant Arpege Bass. Benefiting from over twenty years of research and development, the Arpege features a Vigier pioneered, 10/90 carbon-reinforced bolt-on neck with a carbon bar replacing the traditional truss rod. This groundbreaking technology offers the strength and stability of carbon fiber while retaining the natural sound and sustain of Maple. The triple-layered, alder body with a thick maple top and back also contributes to the instruments stability and offers exceptional tonal quality.
Vigier has always created electronic routings that standout, and this one is no exception. The Arpege features a pair of Benedetti pickups with separate Bass and Treble controls for each pickup, making the Arpege Bass unsurpassed in versatility.
The New Arpege bass, with it’s exceptional flexibility, stability and tone, is sure to inspire bass players everywhere who seek innovation and perfection from their instruments.
