Vigier goes back to the future with Passion!

This is a very special guitar and one of only 5 Passion I Models just completed by Vigier. They found 5 bodies from 1983 in the factory and couldn’t resist building these stunning instruments and reliving part of their amazing history!

Vigier, pioneers of carbon fibre, has gone back to their roots with just five hand-crafted Passion I guitars. The bodies, which date back to 1983, have been completed with all modern electronics, special hand-wound Amber pickups and modern finishing touches for these extremely rare, one of a kind, neck-thru Vigier guitars.

These are the very last bodies from this glorious period in Vigier’s rich history and have been naturally drying, in the Vigier factory, since 1983. Picked out after a factory visit from UK manager, Ben Whatsley, who then subsequently discussed bringing these Passion I’s ‘back to life’ with master luthier, Patrice Vigier.

Patrice and his small, but highly skilled team of luthiers, spent considerable time and effort to ensure the Passion I’s were completed in meticulous detail, getting them just right, with all the advances that Vigier has made over the years.

A few lucky players will get to own these extremely rare Passion I’s, that are now a living part of Vigier’s history-meets present.

For over 30 years, Patrice has strived to make the best guitars possible. Through the past three decades, he has explored many avenues, and his thirst for innovation has often struck (sometimes rightly, but not always) the skepticism of the market.

The instruments we offer today are the synthesis of this experience and we believe that over time, we have struck the right balance between respect for tradition and embrace of modernity.

WORLD GUITARS IS NOT YOUR AVERAGE GUITAR STORE!

We have been hand-selecting, photographing, setting up and selling high end guitars for over 30 years. In this time we have always understood just how important it is to get the setup right. The best guitar in the world can feel very average if it's not setup properly. We have always made this a priority on every single guitar that leaves World Guitars.

Hi Guys I just wanted to send an e-mail to say thank you for the excellent customer service and an amazing guitar. I ordered a John cruz designed Custom Shop Stratocaster with Julian who was very helpful and a pleasure to deal with. The guitar arrived the day after I ordered it and when it arrived it was set up perfectly. I have owned a few Stratocasters in the past including  Custom Shop but this guitar is by far the best. I couldn't be happier with my purchase. This is the 3rd guitar I have bought from yourselves and all of them have been amazing. Keep up the good work guys. World Guitars is second to none. Many Thanks

Gary, UK
