    I know what I'm missing. But they're rare in the U.S. and have body shapes that could be described as being an acquired taste.
  4. EDIT
    Nevermind I found a different thread with the info I want. I will hopefully have one within the year but I don't know if it will be anytime soon. But I really hope so

    Are you Roger Glover?
  6. No, I want one, and Geezer Butler plays one too so you are in good company.

    I live in France and here Vigier basses and guitars are not rare..
    I've tried 2 Excess, one was a serial one, just good..
    The other was exptional, It was made for one of my bass teachers : Patrick Guers (who plays with Patrick Rondat)
    This bass was amazing ! really !
    I dont like the shape (I prefer my Sterling..) But the sound is deep and clear.
    Good Stuff

    My good friend Ron Thall, www.Bumblefoot.com. is sponsored by them. He's a phenomenonal guitar virtuoso & even has a fretless one with a brass fretboard! Great player & great instruments!

  9. He sure looks like him. And the photo is entitled "Glover". :ninja:

    The picture may be of Roger Glover, and of a Vigier Excess, but the poster never said it was a pic of himself.

    Slugworth's profile gives a 1963 birthdate, and RG was born in 1945, so either he is not RG or the date is inaccurate.

    I used to own a purple one about 4 years ago. It was the PERFECT rock bass.

    oh really? umm... someone said that the pickups are noisy. Especially a hiss when the treble or the bass knob is turned to boost.
