  1. I would say Geezer Butler played Vigier basses, and Roger Glover of Deep Purple has his own signature model..not a passion albeit, but still using the 10/90 neck construction.. Doesn't get more metal than that!!🀟 Don't know much about Vigier 5 string basses to be fair but I am sure they will kick out like the 4 string ones do!!
  2. Thanks Ped..πŸ˜ƒπŸ‘ It is a beauty..I know you are the man to goto with all things Vigier, which I also have greatly appreciated, thanks. This one now has batteries in it for the first time in years!! Plays and sounds the absolute business. Very lucky to spot it in a local gumtree add!! Dates to the 15 January 1987.Could maybe be an earlier model with the 2'nd generation of Benedetti pickups? All the best. AlanπŸ˜ƒπŸ‘
  3. Hi Folks.. Recently picked this beauty up!! A Vigier Passion 11 from early 1987..The Walnut body is truly stunning, In incredible condition for age. No major marks or dings. The neck is immaculate, preamp works just great..Very lucky to see the advert in gumtree! It had been used as Wall art for the last four years!! I have invested quite a lot of money and time in tracking down Vigier basses in the 12 years since owning my first one. An antique violin finish Passion custom 111, and it is over thirty years since first playing one in the Basscentre, Really!!πŸ™ˆ Tempus Fugit Not every Vigier has worked out for me. I personally prefer the Passion Basses over the Arpege ones I have owned. Only played an Excess once, amazing necks on these. I can now say, having fortunately owned from a series 1 to a series lV Vigier bass. I am incredibly content.. All stunning basses! Though could not get my head around using a truss rod on a Vigier Arpege series 1 which I had recently, but quite possibly one of the best necks in bassdom!! A series IV Arpege four string, also stunning with an amazing Glokenklang preamp, but in my humble opinion didn't have the class of the neck through basses. So I am stopping buying or selling Vigiers from now on..Having GAS can be bad, but having Vigier GAS can be expensive!!! πŸ™ˆ The series 11 has a slightly bigger body size than the series 111 Weight much the same.The neck profile on my series 111 very very slightly thinner than the 11, but playability wise I can not choose one over the other..If you are quick on the button when one comes up, take the chance..I think you will incredibly happy..πŸ‘πŸ˜ƒ Should we ever be able to travel again there are four passion 11 basses listed for sale in France on www.leboncoin.fr
  4. Wonderful bit of luthiership this!!! Love the walnut top GLWTSπŸ‘πŸ˜ƒ
  5. After a visit down to Alan Cringean at AC Guitars in Moffat this week..I have decided in many ways, why this bass is just way to good to sell, let alone at the price I was offering!!! I sat down back at home and played this bass for 3 hours and realised what a wise decision I was making..Truly fantastic bass!!! Thanks Alan..πŸ‘πŸ˜ƒ
  6. Thankyou ARIS my friend, It really is as you say a Great bass at a bargain price..Thanks for the kind words..All the bestπŸ˜ƒπŸ‘
  7. Thanks @Skybone.. It is a real beauty, needing a new homeπŸ‘

  9. Up for sale here..No trades (sorry) Is a stunning ACG Krell bass, purchased from @Aris on Basschat a couple of months ago..Total Gentleman. This bass is in near as new condition,very very light playing wear, no dents or dings. i believe it was commissioned in 2019..Maybe a member here can supply more information on this? Alan Cringean luthiership is just second to none, just incredible!! As good as I've had the fortune to play/own...Sei, Manson, Shuker etc. I am reluctantly putting this up for sale. It is a joy to play, stunning neck profile. Amazing low action if that is your thing. The bass sounds amazing!!! If you like dialing in your tone, the opportunities are almost endless with the ACG filter preamp..The controls (more pushes and pulls than a church organ..lol) and with the trim pots in the control cavity. If you want to go passive. Brilliant too..Acoustically punchy..You really feel the resonance of the strings running through the bass..The arm rest is incredibly comfy, that is a wonderful touch on this bassπŸ˜ƒπŸ‘ 34 inch scale 1.5 inch nut. Spalt Flame maple top..stunning! Black Walnut body. 5 piece Maple/Wenge/flame Maple/Wenge/ maple neck with a stunning Birdseye Maple fingerboard. Dual action truss rod with 2 Carbon rods.

ACG toolkit. Hiscox case. Neutrik locking socket. Oil rubbed satin lacquer finish..so easy to play.. These basses will cost in the realms Β£2400 and rightly so with exemplary craftsmanship..This bass in near as new condition for Β£1200!! Shipped to UK only..SO BARGAIN!! Welcome to try out Any questions please ask..πŸ˜ƒπŸ‘
  10. Would just like to say. BARGAIN ALERT!!! Fantastic looking bass and being a Jon Shuker bass, will be an amazing player too!! GLWTSπŸ˜ƒπŸ‘
  11. Ironically enough the first bass I ever owned as a lad!! Purchased late summer from Thompson's electrical store in Edinburgh, with the money I made from my summer job!! Very Early eighties..Tempus Fugit...lolπŸ˜‚ These Kay basses later Cort I believe.. were the business..Think to much sweat destroyed the original pickups on mine!! Then I moved onto a Westone Thunder 1A..I believe I sold the Kay it to another local band who converted it into a Fretless!! If they come up worth an investment in my eyes..With some EMG Geezer pickups..and quality new Hardwear would really cut the mustard..Great job on the bassπŸ€ŸπŸ‘ŠπŸ‘πŸ˜ƒ ps the knob on the pickup selector was pretty much just like thatπŸ‘
