    Pretty much what the topic says. Should I sell the C7 for like 400~425 and put around 200~230 or whatever I need aside from my paycheck in two weeks and order an Agile hornet pro 727? I recently bought a Douglas SR370 and my god, that guitar blew me away and I think I'm going all rondomusic now. What does the Hornet compare to with the high end ESP LTDs? (I've been looking at the HEX-7 and considering saving for it, but after getting this Douglas I've really changed my mind..)

    i've owned 2 agile guitars now, an 8 and a 7 and they're both outstanding guitars, worth 2x - 3x the amount your paying for them, i've got a schecter and i've kept it but i would sell it if i wanted to get another agile, they're amazing gutiars man, and the hornet is a beast!!! DO IT!!!

    Hm.. I'm thinking of saving but I'm concerned by the time I have the cash saved up, they'll be gone (I'd have to save a months worth) and the C7 is always available.

    If I can't sell the C7 for 400 or so (they go 500 brand new) then I prolly won't do it, as I absolutely LOVE my C7.

    They'll be back, dude. If you like your C7, you can always save your paychecks and get a Hornet from another run, presuming that the current inventory sells out.

    you said you love your C7 - do NOT sell anything you dont HAVE to. :yesway:. $5 says one will be for sale within a chunk of time.

    If you need more money than your current job provides, work odd jobs!

    lol good point. I already have three 7 strings though and one sixxer. Our rhythm guitarist is using my washburn though.

    I think I'll hold off for a bit longer and aim for blackouts for the douglas, and then after getting those I'll save up for the next run and pull 50~100 off a check, that is assuming they sell out soon.

    I'd suggest not to, only because I don't particularly enjoy V's, I'm a superstrat man.

    I had one for a couple of days. If you order one, make sure they ship it in the hard case! See my NGD thread for the details:

    http://www.sevenstring.org/forum/se...ile-content-56k-probably-not.html#post1624029

    That being said, it was a pretty cool guitar, and my sending it back for a refund was pretty much a knee jerk reaction to being upset about the packing job. I'm actually considering buying another sometime, assuming they have the cases in stock.

    the non baritone ones come with a case now. if I got one I'd prolly get that one cause it's a fact king Vs of any shape or form always get nailed when shipping.. and as much as I love baritone scale, I like my light strings as loose as they can get (I use .14~.08 on my high strings tuned to standard) and that extra length makes them a little too tight for comfort for me.

    ahh that sucks man! that was a really sweet looking guitar! i wanted to get one of those white ones and white out all the plastic but EMG apparently doesnt do white 7 string pickups yet. i could always get a black one and black out all the hardware. or wait for the custom shop to open again and get a black satin one without the pickguard.
