  1. Patrice Vigier suggests going for Glockenklang. I did that with an Arpege and it worked very well.
  2. Depends on your soldering skills. But I doubt there's any chance to purchase this quirky 20 years old electronics. I simply don't understand the value of "original", if "original" did not stand the test of time. It was something that Vigier did for some time and then abandoned it for a reason. But, hey, each one to his likes.
  3. a) I really disliked the quirky mid sweep electronics. Unusable on stage as specific sounds are hardly reproducible on stage, sound differences and impact on volume could be horrible when accidentially moving some knobs. Furthermore it compresses dynamics, even with18V. There's a reason, why Vigier switched to normal electronics. I sold the board to a collector. b) you're correct. This manual belongs to another bass I sold recently. Well, I think it doesn't hurt.
  4. Tonewise I would keep it. But I'm a sixstring man and each time I go for 4, I realize again and again, that it does not work for me.

  9. I don't recognize any significant tonal differences between bridge(Humbucker), bridge(Single), bridge+neck. For everything funky or pop this seems to be great bass, Fusion too.

    Vigier Porn!

    Not long ago the Vigier Arpege 6 bass was mine. I bought it from a guy in Spain. Played it for two years and replaced the Vigier electronics by a Glockenklang 2-band-eq. Btw I'm located in Germany. Then decided to reduce my weaponary and to stay with my other Arpege 6. This one moved to Romania and apparently very quick to ...where?
  11. Come on guys, last opportunity to catch this real cool bass before GB undocks the continent to vanish in the Atlantic ocean.
  12. now 2200 EUR / 1900 GBP (depends on daily exchange rates)
