About This Listing


From the moment I plugged the Vigier Arpege bass in, I knew this is the best modern sounding, spectrally balanced, and playing bass to come through our store, ever, and that's saying a lot. With a Maple neck that features two Carbon strips running down the length, the Arpege's perfect neck does not need a truss rod, it never goes out of adjustment, and once combined with Vigier's ultra high mass bridge, the strings come alive with sustain and responsiveness. Offering the traditional master volume and blend control, Vigier takes tone a step further with their 18 volt, dual 3 band active EQ system, and their own single coil pickup system. With a dual 3 band EQ, you get a dedicated bass, mid, treble “boost and cut” for each pickup, allowing for example, to EQ the neck PU for a big warm dark sound, and the bridge PU with a mid and treble peak for clarity, then adjust the blend control to create a huge sound ranging from deep lows to clear highs, it's an incredible sound. Other notable features include a 24 fret neck with a Phenowood fingerboard that feels like glass, and Stainless Steel frets that further enhance this instrument's effortless playability. The Vigier Arpege Custom 5 bass is the very best modern bass we have to offer at Rainbow Guitars, it is stellarly spectacular. Buy this one today. - Scott
