Good lord, that Agile is sexy... I know they're of mediocre quality, but 27", ebony fingerboard, trans black over figured maple, archtop body... a Floyd and EMGs... soooooo tempting to buy as a holdover until I get my RG2228. If you decide to sell it anytime soon, PM me.

Well it sure does look nice!

Is yours 81-7/707? It's kind of hard to tell.

Good question As far as I can tell, it's the same as the previous blue/original Interceptor that I recently sold. Kinda feels a bit different, but maybe that's just cuz of the finish...? Anyway, here's how it compares to a 1527 at the first fret:

They're 707s and I haven't used the trem yet. The 7 is actually my brother's, maybe he will post what he thinks of it But so far, he really likes it a lot better than the original Interceptor

Nice one! I'm glad I got the blue version, but that trans black looks very cool in the light.

I wouldn't say "mediocre" even for the old Interceptor, it was very decent for its price point, even with the trem issues, which I hear are resolved on the Pro.

I'm just glad they lowered the scale length to 25.5", I was really starting to miss that tension.

Like psyphre said, i don't think there's many people out there thinking it's mediocre.
Especially regarding its price range.

That looks far better than how I thought it'd look in black. Congrats! They really need to some out with a fixed bridge, 27" scale version of the Pro!

For $600, you're getting a LOT of guitar with this monster. Here are the specs:

Mahogany body/flame maple top
Neckthrough 5 piece maple neck
Licensed Floyd
EMG 707 pickups
1 volume, 1 tone, 3 way toggle
25.5" scale
Ebony fretboard
24 extra jumbo frets
No inlays
flamed headstock
Grover tuners

So how does it play, sound, and feel? It honestly gets two huge thumbs up all around. The cosmetics are great and I can find no flaws or anything that stands out as a potential negative. The ONLY thing would have to be the licensed Floyd instead of a real one...BUT it feels better than the last Interceptor's and it seems pretty stable so far.

The Fretboard is verrrrrrrrrry smooth and great ebony. It has/had the same type of slightly glossy/shine to it that other new guitars have but it wears down with playing. The frets are very nice, well shaped, and feel very smooth.

You may notice that the cutaways are a bit sculpted and provide a little better access around the neck too.

The EMGs are pretty sweet, very crunchy and a great balance for the mahogany/maple combo.

Also, the other change from the prior version is the scale length. The Pro is back down to 25.5" and is VERY comfortable to play on. The neck profile seems a bit better than the original Interceptor too. It's still thick, but not uncomfortable.

This really isn't a "good guitar for the money guitar," it's just plain great. If you're looking for a cool seven string, definitely give this one a look.










Here's how the neck profile compares to an Ibanez 1527 prestige profile at the first fret:
