Vigier are World renown for their use of Graphite in the necks of their basses, pioneering the concept back in the 1980s. The new 90/10 system gives you the undeniable stiffness of the graphite but with the warmth and added tonality of wood - the perfect combination! With its pickups mounted towards the bridge the tone is aggressive and punchy, but the pickups have plenty of depth and bass for a full tone. This bass is just alive when played and the neck is one of the slimmest and easier four string necks available. The Flame Maple top and back are beautiful and the construction is faultless.

Vigier basses are always well built and each model is usually offered in many different finishes and available in 4-string, 5-string and fretless versions (with Delta metal fingerboard) as well as standard and custom models.

This Passion III from 1996 is no exception, with a through-neck construction that features a pair of graphite reinforcing strips that pass right into the body. The offset bridge design makes for very precise tuning and a low action. The sound is full and warm but with the ability to bite and growl thanks to the sensitive circuitry.

The compact asymmetrical body is light and comfortable to play, making the Passion a must-play bass that remains in production today.

  3. Here is a really good example of these sought after basses. Hand made in France this bass is in great condition with a few small marks in the finish, the fingerboard is in superb condition and the bass has a great tone with plenty of tonal options.

Patrice Vigier pioneered graphite neck construction in the 1970s and 80s, and after much research and fine tuning Vigier moved away from the colder and brittle sounding solid graphite necks to a composite of 90% wood and 10% graphite - this yields the same strength and rigidity famed on graphite necked instruments but with more depth and warmth in the low and mid range and is smoother in the upper registers giving a balanced and musical tone.
