    My new Agile Septor 828!
    I've only played 7's for 3 months or so and I just started to fully adjust to those, so this 8 is pretty crazy, but I can tell I'm going to love it. It's a beautiful guitar and I have no complaints about it except the lack of inlays and the pickups aren't too awesome for high gain (although I looooove the clean sounds!)

    I recorded a couple shitty riffs I came up with in 5 minutes. Drop E tuning.

    What does everyone recommend I learn? I've learned a couple After The Burial and Meshuggah riffs. Animals as Leaders is too intense for me haha.

    Nice man. I'm not a huge fan of Agiles natural finishes but if you like it that's all that matters. I can guarantee your going to have an awesome guitar man! :shred: I'm loving mine so far!

    Nice, I have a White Agile Septor Elite 827 with Blackouts. Love it. Congrats man, its one hell of a great guitar. Are you planning on swapping out those stock pickups for some BKPs? Do it up man!

    Also idk about your preferences, but I changed the string gauges to .010, .013, .017, .026w, .036, .046, .062, .080. instead of the stock .009, .012, .015, .022, .030, .040, .054, .074, and it made a ridiculous difference. The sound and clarity, especially for the cleans is amazing. The low F#/E is feels awesome instead of floppy. I recommend looking into it

    :lol: Nope. I thought that since UG doesn't see 8 string NGD's too often I would make it a bit more exciting. I got some lols out of it. You come here and there's $3000 customs everyday :lol:

    And I learned part of whales, but that doesn't even use the 8th string. I also learned a couple riffs from Aspiration by After The Burial and a couple riffs from Combustion by Meshuggah.

    BKP's are kind of expensive for me and I was actually really impressed with what I heard of the D-Activators 8's so I think I'm going to go for those. And that's the exact string gauges I'm planning on getting for this haha.

    Yea I've heard good things about the D-Activators too, def post a clip when you get them. Thats awesome about the gauges. The way I get them is I buy a .010 and a .080 d'addario single string (from Daddy's Boston who actually has .080!!s thanks Ari) and then I buy the D'addario baritone lights for the middle. That's just my method though, they sounds great!

    On second thought, I'll probably go for 10-59 with an 80. The 28 inch scale would probably make a B too tight for me with a 62.

    I've wanted a white septor 8 ever since crg123's NGD

    how does the neck feel guys?

    comparable to ibanez rg2228?.....thin and not too bulky.

    Before, I didn't really like those, but now that I've seen a better picture and in that color, instant GAS. I will buy one of these over an intrepid any day now. :yesway: Congrats on your guitar dude!

    Yet another Agile ERG owner! Congrats man.

    I liked the Intrepid more than the Septor until I got my Tribal purple Septor. :bowdown:
