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.Full Specs:

There have been many ‘plexi’ clones over the years that have tried, and to some extent succeeded, to imitate that classic late 60s and 70s rock guitar tone that fans of bands like Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath are so familiar with.
