Sweet Konfyouzd - checked out your Agile pic. What a thing of beauty.

I'm failrly certain that I'm going with the "Agile Interceptor 825 EB DOT Black Flame" - it just has DAVID written all over it.

It's the length of the neck. People like longer necks to compensate for the added tension of the thicker strings, so as not to lose any tone.

Doubt it. I'm not an expert, but I can imagine that the longer the scale, the bigger the frets. That should be something easy to look up though.

It has the same number of frets (24). With the longer scale, the notes are stretched out and the frets have to be placed to match.

The trem can be locked, so you don't have to deal with it if you don't want to.

Check out mah sweet band...

no, still 24 frets but they are wider. If you have small hands, try to get a Interceptor 827, cuz the scale will be 3 inches smaller.

is an 830 necessary for a low F tuning (F-Bb-Eb, etc.)?? cuz theres no way the higher strings can sound good on a 30" scale for chords or bending. and 30 would be quite an adjustment for me. could i get away with that tuning on an 828?

Are you talking about F1, almost an octave below the low E2 on six-string?

If so, it is definitely possible to get down to even E1 at 25.5", and even lower.

There are numerous posts and topics about doing calculations and determining the correct string gauges for various tensions, scale lengths and tunings. I'm sure if you are curious, you'll easily find the information, so I'll not repost it all again.

Good luck!

If you don't care enough to research your own question, why should anyone else care more?

You can get that not with any scale, but you need different sting gauges depending on the scale. As Explorer stated here, you might want to go in other specified threads as the String tension thread or maybe even the Tuning thread to get some more info.

Anyone know anything about the Agile Intrepid Dual 828 MN Oceanburst. How do it play? No string-lock, how is the tuning doing? She's a beauty and i need her to deliver the goods!

Yes, many people know about the Agile Intrepid Dual 828 model.

There has been a lot written about it here on SS.org. I'm a little surprised you haven't found anything.

Let me Google that for you.

Happy reading!

^mmh it's not the first time I see ppl asking for a 25.5 - 27 multiscale guitar, so it might happen in a few production lines... e-mail kurt at rondo about it, and suggest that! its the best way to get your propositions somewhere they can become reality.
