So I just ordered one. Neck through, EMG, ebony fretboard. I'm super pumped. Any of you guys played one? what are your opinions?
I've heard they're quite good (as in, people prefer them to Ibanez' RG2228).
haven't checked them out, but sounds awesome and knowing Agile probably the most affordable 8 string out there
I've seen pretty shoddy QC from the Agile Intrepids. I looked on youtube to hear them one day. There were only 3 people who owned them. And 2 of them had problems. On one, the neck pickup wasn't installed properly. And the other one had finish problems and a bad stripe that could've easily been avoided. Hopefully yours doesn't have any problems. If I ever decide to get into ERGs, the Intrepid will probably be the one I get.
what do you do for strings? a pack of guitar and bass or do they sell 8 string packs?
Singles usually. I hear 10-52s are popular, then get singles for the B and F#
