WOOHOO it's here! p0Rn first then specs and review of this compared to an agile 830 septor elite A Box The cutting tool Another more complex box Holy... 8 string family photo Specs: Deep Purple Quilt Blackburst Edges Deep Triple Step Stain/Color Process Clear Gloss Finish (Standard) Maple Neck/Alder Body (Standard) Black Sides w/ Black Burst Back 5-Piece Maple Neck w/ 2 Walnut Stripes Painted Satin Finish Back Of Neck (Matches Body Color) Ebony Fingerboard (Standard) Jumbo Frets .055" H .110" W 20in Fretboard Radius (Standard) First Impression: Mother of god. An absolute amazing instrument. What blew me away is the neck profile and also the spacing between strings. This is important to me since I have smaller hands but this guitar makes playing 8 easy. The agile spacing seems greater and tends to give me hand cramps lol. At first I was a lil disappointed when I opened it since the purple quilt is VERY dark, although I think it's all based on lighting as what that photo shows. But overall quality of the color is much superior on the DC800. The agiles flame seems skin deep to me. I have yet to find any flaws on the guitar but I have yet to go through it with a magnifying glass quite yet. Weight feels right, and sits comfortably on a strap. Weird other thing that I like, I like the strings on it, they feel so smooth? I'm not sure if Carvin uses Carvin strings or Elixir or something cause thats what they remind me of. Sound quality: Very bassy. I have never been a fan of active pickups, and will probably switch them out for either BKP or M8s. I currently have M8's installed on my agile in the photos (with covers on them), and I couldn't be happier with it's sound. I'm sure I'll post an updated review once I get fully acquainted with my new woman.
