Well , basically I've been gasing for a 7 stringer.
Dad just told me we MIGHT be going to korea on vacation .
So i was thinking of picking up something there , considering agile is made there if i'm not mistaken ? I'm wondering if its cheaper there and what similar brands i can look out for .
KOREAN UG-ers I NEED YOUR HELP!

Cheers

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

forgot to mention i'm not from the US .. =C
and i was thinking agiles since the shipping here (malaysia) would be a bomb .. do they have retail guitar shops where they sell locally made guitars ( decent ones of course)
I vaguely remember some guy posting him scoring awesome guitars in japan for much cheaper and i wonder if korea would have the same thing going on

I could be wrong, but I would think that just because there are a lot of factories in Korea, that doesn't mean that you're going to be able to walk up to them and buy a guitar.

I am currently living in Korea... the guitars here cost way more than they do back home. Even the ones made in Korea cost like 2-3x as much as they do in the states.

i wish i was kidding but sadly i am not. Everything is more expensive here. it sucks, i thought i would be able to swindle some cheap stuff but that is not the case. in some cases it is cheaper for me to buy online in america and have it shipped, STILL cheaper.
