i just got an agile 828 bloodburst and i love it, except for one thing. i wanted the extended scale because i heard it provides better string tension but when i got it the strings where just too loose for me especially on the low strings. will thicker gauges fix that? i hve .009 .012 .015 .022 .030 .040 .054 .072 and i want to use drop tuning to play after the burial, periphery type stuff, what companies make good 8 string sets? also i know octave4plus has a good high A string but how is the rest of the set

I had the same exact problem. The strings that come stock on them are NOT what they say they are. I use .09-.059 on my 7 strings, and the .069 was visably THICKER than the 8th string on my Agile 8. Buy a set of d'addario 9-59's and add a .072 bass string (It barely fits). And you'll see that your string tension will be GREATLY improved. I don't know what they're putting on their guitars, but they are a lot lighter than 9's, that's for sure!

Move up to .010 - .074 if you need them to be tighter for down tuning. I used the above set at a 1/2 step down and it felt great.

AHHH MOTHERLAND!

All hail soviet Arktanistan-Groffistan!

Yeah. The thicker the gauge, the lower the string resonates, so thicker strings = more tension (in the same tuning).

Also, I don't think there is an string set, You just have to buy the gauge you want individually, for the B and F# strings at least. I'd get a standard 6 string pack that I like then buy the other two as singles.

After the Burial only uses 9-74 and that's on the 27in scale...

LaBella can make you any gauge though just call Leo and put in an order for custom HRS

Will a Agile Intrepid Pro Dual 828 MN NA fit into a Douglas EGC-200 Baritone Case?
because this Douglas EGC Intrepid Case is out of stock and not listed on rondomusic at all.

I kind of like that red one more than my Intrepid 828.

At first I thought "meh, Im simply used to seeing 2 more strings on that".
But i checked the specs, and it is 1 5/8" wide at the nut... that's 41.2mm
An ibanez super wizard prestige neck has 43mm. shredtastic.

Bass horn is freakin massive, the whole thing looks big since it originated as a bass before it became an 8.

Still kninda like it though. It'd be an excellent no-frills player's guitar.

I really like the red one. Only thing with Agile's is that I'm not a fan of the thick poly finishes.

Wow! I sure hope they scaled the body down on that, because it was pretty big on the 8-strings, being that it was a bass body.

Looks cool, but it'd be nice to see a picture of an average-sized person playing it. I had an Intrepid 8 and the body was huge, but it seemed to work okay for an 8. I would hope the body is noticably smaller on the 6.
