This is a listing for a new VIGIER EXCALIBUR SHAWN LANE MASTER SIGNATURE ELECTRIC GUITAR with a hard shell Hiscox case.   Comes with full manufacturer's warranty.  True work of art.  If you have never played one you are doing yourself a disservice. Get your hands on this one today!!

An exceptional example of the Shawn Lane Master Signature, this guitar is totally shred-ready. Good luck putting it down once you’ve picked it up!


The Vigier Shawn Lane Master Signature model is built from the ground up for precision, playability, control and ease of playing. This extraordinary guitar built on Vigier’s acclaimed Excalibur platform is a fine tuned speed demon. Flamed alder ends up looking a bit different on every example of this model. This particular guitar has smoky dark tones with a deep richness that sets it apart from others we’ve seen (as you can see from the pics).


Features: 10/90 carbon graphite reinforced neck, Flat fingerboard radius, unbelievably low action, 24 stainless steel frets, 24 ¾” scale length, Vigier non-locking tremolo (factory set for down only), eyelet string retainers, oversized locking tuners, teflon nut, DiMarzio HSH pickups, 5-way switch.


Neck: Vigier is famous for the extraordinary comfort of their guitar necks. Just ask Bumblefoot. The D shape neck on this guitar feels thin, not chunky, comfortable and smooth and fits naturally in the hands. The 10/90 carbon injection gives the guitar a very even response all across the neck. No dead spots. The 24 ¾” scale length makes for a slightly softer string tension that together with the stainless steel frets makes bending notes silky smooth.


Playability: The Vigier Shawn Lane Master Signature guitar features the lowest action of any production guitar ever made. It’s not just insanely low, it’s even all the way up and across the fingerboard. This is made possible by a completely flat fingerboard radius and zero fret. This allows your left hand, to completely relax, the guitar virtually plays itself. This was Shawn’s vision of his dream guitar - one that was so easy to play that the player could forget about the effort of playing and just get lost in the music. It’s so easy on your hands, you never tire of playing it! If you’d like the action a bit higher, bridge adjustments are a breeze. The Vigier non-locking tremolo stays in tune exceptionally well thanks to ball-bearing pivots and eyelet floating string retainers (no more strings caught in a silly string tree). Together with the oversized locking tuners and teflon nut this amounts to near zero friction tremolo performance.


Sound: Acoustically this is a surprisingly loud, jangly guitar. The DiMarzio Air Classic humbuckers together with a DiMarzio FS-1 in the middle, are controlled by a 5-way switch which provides a variety of split coil sounds in the middle 3 positions, and full bore neck and bridge humbuckers at the 1st and 5th positions. The main strength of this guitar tonally would be the exceptional high and medium gain tones from the humbuckers. The middle positions provide a variety of funky and clear single coil type sounds that cover a lot of tonal ground. Altogether, this guitar will deliver the goods for most rock and pop musical styles short of extreme metal.


Set it, Forget it: The 10/90 neck simply will not move. No truss rod adjustments necessary. Well actually, there is no truss rod! Vigier finally got rid of that thing altogether! The only adjustments you’ll need to make are bridge adjustments for different string gauges or for your preferred action. Then you’re set. Humidity, weather changes, airplanes, whatever, this neck just will not move. No more fiddling around with wrenches before the gig 'cause the weather changed and your neck decided to do a banana.

Shawn Lane has been recognized as the fastest guitar player ever, but from our point of view, he was primarily a composer of melodies that deeply reached the soul. We made a unique Excalibur for him which features a flat fingerboard with probably the lowest string action in guitar-making history. He played this guitar from the day he got it until the day he sadly died in 2003. We kindly thank his family for allowing us to continue building Shawn’s signature guitar series.
