  4. 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. The Arpgere also features a unique dual eq system with a 3 band eq for each pickup offering an amazing array of tones!!

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.
