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.

The guitar arrived today WOW!! It's fantastic and has exceeded my expectations in all respects. The build quality and finish are outstanding as is the feel and the sound. I only had an hour to play with it but I can't wait to get it plugged in again. Please pass on my thanks to Patrick Eggle who I hope to see at the London Acoustic guitar show again this year when I can thank him in person. Thanks also to you and the team at World Guitars, you really showed a personal interest in my order from start to finish including the delivery which went totally to plan. I would certainly recommend you to my friends. A cut above other major guitar stores I have visited and used.
