    Despite my review (which I'm hoping didn''t come off as negative), I'd still buy one, and anyone who was thinking about one, I'd still say go for it, I posted what I posted to make everyone here aware, but (and no I'm not screaming) IT'S STILL A KICKASS GUITAR FOR THE PRICE. Send it through the regular setup process (fret level, neck adjust, etc), and I guarantee youi will have a nice guitar.

    Actually, I had SERIOUSLY considered this, and as my 30 day limit approaches, I still think about from time to time, but I really liked the 27" scale, which the Septor didn't have. That seems to a sticking point, since the Interceptors been sold out for a couple of weeks , and they still have Septors on the Rondo site.

    Another thing thats been in the back of my mind too, the price difference is only 10$!?!??!? Now simple logic tells me that being the trem and added wood, the difference should be more than 10 bucks. Someone gotta really hate trems to pass that up, or perhaps the issues were known beforehand, and they were priced to move. Again, I'm not hatin', just wonderin'.

    My personal opinion, I think the 25.5 Septor should go bye bye, and Ronda should make ALL of their 7 string 27", and maybe sink the hardtail like Noodles's KXK (awesome idea btw, making it so that the trem and hardtail feel the same). Now that would be cool.

    I've heard too much bad shit about Agile's, I'm starting to wonder if they are actually that good.

    Good review

    Great review. I still stand by my opnion that 50% of the intercepter owners ( and 50% of those end up selling or returning) aren't happy or find bigtime flaws. That stops me from ever buying one sight unseen.

    (hint hint :Dorkness wants an endorsement: hint hint).[/QUOTE]
    (( well since you asked....nice Dave Mustaine Chally ball huggers.....with the Joe satriani Glasses and Bald head Look....sweet....)))


    This is the greatest metal Photo of all time....the contrst alone is Killer.....if agile even had some form of endorkment you would get it brother.....I am still playing around with mine...the whole thing is...it is too similar to an Ibanez...and Unlike every other Ibanez teet sucker out there i am not a fan...but the 27" scale has me hooked because all my customs are the same....

    But man Purple is your color.....great attension to detail man...:wavey: :bowdown: :metal:

    What's more desirable? A 25.5" Interceptor with Floyd or a 27" hard tail. I just cannot make all possible options. Also there seems to be demand for a set neck and mahogany body as well (vs Agathis and bolt on).

    Personally, I'd say leave the 27" Interceptor as is and just slap a floyd on the Septor.
    One of these days I'm going to pick up another Interceptor and shave the neck down for my tastes. :yesway:

    You should do a 27" Fixed bridge too!

    Thats the only reason why i didn't keep mine (it was 25.5").

    Awesome....I love my 27" scale twins, and will not part with them, but I'm ready to go back to 25.5" for general use. You can also consider this my vote for 25.5" neckthru's.
