The 4ap is a semi-hollow/chambered model. The logo is an f-hole. The entire guitar is super light. The bridge is interesting. It's the abm single saddles they use for the multi scales. I've never seen it on a non-fanned before though. I would have preferred string-through body but the bridge seems super sturdy. I'm going to have to go and get the guitar on Tuesday.

Wow some amazing NGDs in here recently and I love it!! That's crazy to walk into a store and see a Mayones. I'd have likely impulse-bought it too! how are you liking those aftermaths? I love those covers, they go so well with that finish. I had a miracle man with that cover once but after I went to put it in a new guitar, I didn't feel like getting the body routed out for it to fit so I sold it and bought another miracle man with red bobbins.

acoustic mirror what brand is that? I can't read the headstock. Its beautiful and I love the back end! Can't wait to read your review and see more pics.

Time for all of us to go write some badass music!

It's a skervesen 4ap. I need to go back to Hong Kong to grab it from my sister's place tomorrow. Will do a ngd after that.

To be fair Guitar Guitar in the UK always have great stock, and I was lucky that they had a Regius that was similar to the custom sepc I was building.

Initially I didn't think I'd be a fan of the aftermaths, but for the genre I'll be using this guitar for they seem pretty darn good atm! Bridge pickup screams but still has quite alot of clarity - although some would say it can get a bit harsh. The neck pickup, whilst not massively versatile or renowned for a great clean sounds, does the job well with the patches I use on my Pod (especially coil tapped) which was a surprise, although I'm sure there are better/more versatile neck pickups around.

I'd actually probably prefer the pickups without the covers on, but it does make the guitar stand out even more which is cool.

Have a semi-custom Agile Septor ordered. 7-string, 27" scale, Tiger Eye burst.
Won't see it until July.

That said, getting a $325 guitar with select custom options is a nice option.

Played an Ornsby Shark at the Guitar Show UK a few days ago, and was a massive fan (pardon the pun) of the fan fret. Very easy to play.

My next 7 will likely be a 25.5-27 fan fret of some kind

nice. i've got a fanned guitar on the way.

Still on the look out for a TX as well. The shark run should be opening in the next few days.

I wanted an orangey guitar and almost got the Jackson JS32, but then Rondo started offering this option for like $25 more for a 7-string. And honestly, while I'd like a Floyd to mess around with, I also realize the maintenance is higher. I liked the tension on the low B on the JS22-7 with the 26.5" scale, so this should be nice as well. I think they come with 9-56 gauge strings stock.

No pickup changes yet. I've never had the Cephus pickups before (or Agile, really) and I think next year would hopefully have me getting into a beefier combo or head + cab, since I'm beginning to consider my back. As much as I've flirted with the idea of pickup changes, I think I need to work on my amp game more in terms of settings and then a nice system. I'm still keeping my Vypyr for practicing, but to elevate my rock n' roll fantasy camp mode and allow for experimenting with pedal ideas without having to buy them. So far I'd need a OD/Distortion and compressor.

Nice. Never played one of those, but the low-end stuff (under $500) I've tried was really good. Any JP model seems to be an outstanding product from what I hear.

I've played the 6 string version. Also played a PRS Mark Holcomb side by side. I thought the Sterling was infinitely better, and cheaper.

This is a NUGD -- I've actually had it for a few days but didn't know if I was going to keep it. I spotted it used at a GC in Oregon, had it shipped down to Pasadena. It was packed badly and arrived with a ding in the headstock right at the little point on top. Everything else is good, and after all was said and done, the price was right at $200 including tax and shipping. I think Rondo originally had these at $399 plus shipping plus case.



It's a basic 7-string with a 27" scale, Tusq nut, ebony fretboard, 24 jumbo frets, 14" radius, black-dyed quilt top with red binding and transparent red paint. Mine has speed knobs. The neck pickup is a Cepheus, the bridge is a Seymour Duncan Nazgul. I was afraid it would be neck-heavy, and it's not. The neck is about 11/16ths thick at the first fret with a nut width of 1 7/8ths". Not bad at all. Good piece.

for some reason im just now seeing this! I have the exact guitar in green and i love it! I kept mine tuned to F since I went so long without an 8 string but now that Ive got my 8, when i get around to restringing it, the Agile will be staying in G or Ab standard. I found it to be neck heavy and with the wrong strap, it would dive while using it live, but otherwise it was a pretty manageable guitar. nice score!!

I just got my first 7 string about a week ago and I'm in love. I don't know why I waited so long. Not had a chance to take any decent pictures yet but she's an Ibanez ARZ307. Fantastic playing guitar, super comfortable neck. Will be ugrading pups/tuners/bridge after I've got an amp.

And now I'm GAS'ing hard for more 7's and the Rob Scallon sig 8 string.
#15421
'Sup all.  Just got an Agile iInterceptor Pro 728 EB for christmas.  Changed out the original gauges it came with , 9- something, and strung it with D'addario 10-56 with a 70 for the low B.   Currently tuned to Periphery tunings  with G# as the low B.

  Im still not crazy about the low G#, a little floppy, and was wondering what gauges you guys use on 7 strings of similar neck length.  I also ocaasionally drop it a further 1/2 step to play whitechapel and similar music.  Any help would be appreciated.
#15422
Feel free to upload pics when you guys get them! You can never post too many photos of guitars

I don't have much experience with a string tuned to G# on a 28" scale but for shorter scales a 74 has been ok. If you like 10-56 w/ a 70 for standard tuning, then maybe a 76 or 78 would do. btw I LOVE tuning to that low G# and G. Those keys sound the "darkest" out of all of them IMO.

Mine's not neck heavy, but it's seriously overall heavy (which may be keeping the neck up). I haven't weighed it yet, but I think it's going to go to 11. Pounds, that is.

Thanks for the input  SYLrules.  I appreciate he response.  Between my 8 string, 7 string, and baritone,  standard guitars seem like baby guitars to me LOL!  Honestly like the room on the fretboard.  My Intrepid at 28.75"  can be a strecth for some things but im adjusting pretty quick.  Honestly love ERG's.

Sooooooo about a month or so ago, I had an accident with an ERG Loaded gear up late at night after a show, drove to a friends house to unload amp and head and had to remove some things from my car which I tend to set on my roof. Driving halfway home from there I got this sick feeling that one of my guitars wasn't in the car with me. Spent some time looking for it that night etc and the next day, put the word out on social media etc. Monday I get a call from the local music store asking to come see them about my guitar. I get there to find it hanging up on the wall...in pieces turns out a guy on a motorcycle ran over it and im highly thankful neither he nor his bike were damaged. It was awfully cool of him to bring it by the store in hopes that the owner could get it back.

Sadly it was my Warmoth 7 which was swirl painted by Ben Eller who is a phenominal guitarist and does all of the lead work for Whitechapel. Truly a unique guitar but honestly I'm slightly relieved. The frets were never level and I only found one person in my area who was willing to butcher their tools on the stainless steel, and he got it better but still not great. I never got around to buying middle and neck single coil pickups and I had a cheap bridge pup in it the whole time. I never really felt like I clicked with the guitar.

Good thing I already know what I'm getting to replace it!! I spec'ed out something a while back and after I lost this guitar, I revisited the specs and I was still interested in everything so I know it will be to my liking. Just gotta save up some money which may take a little while (caring for a house sucks). My goal is to get it by the end of the year and to flood this thread with pictures haha.

Never load your gear drunk.
Friend of mine from another band was loading his gear and an idiot in a huge pickup truck backed up and drove over his guitar case. The guitar case was toast, but somehow the guitar survived (a combination of soft snow under the case and dualies on the back of the truck spreading out the load, I think).

One comment: Warmoth does NOT dress their frets, and they tell everyone this upfront. This is why you don't just bolt a Warmoth together and go play.
It's also why I don't buy Warmoth guitars from anyone. Another friend of mine DID buy a Warmoth at a killer price and took it immediately to Gary Brawer in San Francisco. Gary disassembled the guitar, took out the very strange cardboard shims, cleaned the neck pocket on the body, reassembled the guitar with the proper neck angle and realigned it to the bridge, rewired the pickups (you should have seen the switch on this poor thing), installed the bridge properly, realigned the tuners, put the proper bushings in the headstock, redid the nut, and then superglued the frets (stainless) and gave the thing a proper PLEK job. Absolutely magnificent guitar after that (Gary takes into consideration how you play, and everything is adjusted to the strings you usually use).
