Vigier Introduces G.V. Series Guitars

English
10 January 2009 — Vigier, the pioneer of carbon-fiber technology in guitar design, is delighted to introduce a unique new addition to its lineup. After a year of intense research and development, Vigier proudly presents the G.V., which is the very first single-cutaway guitar the company has created. The G.V. is a tribute to Georges Vigier, who unselfishly contributed to the success of Vigier Guitars for over 20 years.

By using the company’s exclusive 10/90 system (10% carbon/90% wood) and a few secrets in the design, Vigier has created a light guitar with superior tonal characteristics. The G.V. offers balanced response, lots of power, no dead spots on the fingerboard, and sustain that lasts forever. Furthermore, the G.V. benefits from having a zero fret and Teflon nut, which create less friction to allow strings to glide freely across the nut, and provide better stability in tuning. Depending on the model, the G.V.’s electronics will include a pair of either Amber or DiMarzio humbucking pickups that are activated by a 5-way pickup selector switch.

For this new series, Vigier has developed an exclusive bridge and tailpiece that can be locked in place once the setup is completed. This exceptional design prevents tuning problems and guarantees better sustain.

The G.V. Series includes three models: G.V.Metal, G.V.Rock, G.V.Wood. All instruments are carefully handcrafted by master luthiers using select grades of alder and maple.
