    I'm waiting to order my first seven string, I've decided on agile but the oceanburst flame finish I want wont be back in 7's until later this year.

    When I first saw their oceanburst flame finish I knew that was the one! But more so because I like how their oceanburst colors looks with a figured top (not a fan at all of their oceanburst on natural finish). Flame tops are just meh to me, Im a sucker for quilt tops.

    So I made some mockups in photoshop of what an agile oceanburst quilt would look like. (The first one might even be one of your guitars since I pulled it from the forum!)

    I posted these as suggestions on the agile forum, as I know Kurt sometime's orders based on customer requests.

    I wish that oceanburst quilt tops were offered by big name brands on standard production models. A man can dream!

    PRS does this kind of finish and man; I hate it. I hate it because it's a $4000 guitar and I'll never justify purchasing it.

    If Agile makes quilted ones on 8 strings though.. I'll have to drop $1k on it. I just won't have any choice in the matter.

    Oh fuck. That last picture. Everything about that is just... right.

    Except the EMGs. Everything else, though... *drools on keyboard*

    The Quilted maple top is definitely a necessity for oceanburst.

    I fucking ASKED FOR THIS!

    I tried to get this added to the April 2012 run color options for the Pendulums.

    Kurt told me he wouldn't do it because he didn't have any pics of one. EMAIL HIM NOW.

    That last pic looks like a Carvin top I've seen before btw...

    I did the last mock up kind of sloppy and rushed, and while it does look cool and everybody loves this one the best, the first two mockups would be more accurate to how Agile's oceanburst quilt would look if they did it.

    This is taking into consideration the colors on the oceanburst flame and trying to match the same paint and burst on it. The colors aren't "correct" on this one. There's too much of a contrast between the teal and the blueburst making it look kind of like a carvin dragon burst.

    But the first pic is my favorite!
    Here would be my dream Specs!

    Interceptor 7 string specs
    Ocean Burst Quilt
    25.5" Scale Length
    Ebony Board with the offset dots, OR Maple Board no inlays
    Passive Pickups and the hipshot style bridge, or tuneomatic string through if that isnt available.


    Done
