Ron Bumblefoot Thal
Ron Bumblefoot Thal
Groupe : Bumblefoot / Guns and Roses / Asia / Sons Of Appolo
Artiste Vigier depuis : 1997

Ron Bumblefoot Thal est considéré comme un véritable extraterrestre de la guitare car sa technique de jeu est extraordinaire et incomparable.
Son talent de guitariste est doublé de talents de compositeur, arrangeur et producteur.
Parallèlement il a perfectionné son chant jusqu'à intégrer à ce poste le mythique groupe Asia.
Il a été l'un des deux premiers artistes Vigier à utiliser la guitare fretless Excalibur Surfreter et il ne fait nul doute qu'il a contribué à la popularisation de ce modèle qu'il commencera à utiliser sur son album 911 puis sur l'album de Guns N'Roses Chinese Democracy.
Il sera également à l'origine de la création de la seule guitare double manche Vigier fretté/fretless qu'il utilise, à ce jour, presque exclusivement.

Michel Berger
Groupe : Michel Berger
Artiste Vigier depuis : 1983

Michel Berger est un des artistes Français les plus prolifiques et a été à l'origine d'un nombre impressionant de tubes.

C'est une personne qui restera également dans nos mémoires comme étant un grand humaniste.

Il avait demandé à Patrice Vigier de lui faire une guitare synthétiseur afin de pouvoir se mouvoir sur scène. Patrice Vigier avait adapté un synthétiseur Yamaha sur le corps de son modèle Arpege.

Michel Berger avait également invité Patrice Vigier à participer au Grand Échiquier, une émission importante en 1983, au cours de laquelle il a présenté la première guitare à mémoire (le système Vigier Nautilus).

Instruments :

Guitare Arpège I modifiée en synthétiseur
