    There's a sweet 9 on here right now, would buy but I'm not in the right place for it yet...

    Thought it might be overlooked because it's grouped with the 8s on the webpage. Do they always do that? I also feel like they don't usually have polished steel on the poles..

    just get a Ten... Moar is better.
    also be wary the ten isn't strung or spaced like a ten in fourths. (e4 - G#0)
    It's strung IIRC like a double neck ed gutardedbass.:spock:

    Cannot wait for my 7 to get here in September. Hope I don't get a dud/wrong spec.

    Those new models look really good. I just wish that they had a different bridge. :'(

    The semi-custom shop is seriously calling to me. I do wonder one thing, however.

    I am a fine-tuner-on-guitar-bridges addict, yet have no interest in using a trem for dramatic pitch bends. I couldn't help but notice that the Kahler trem has the option for locking. Since most people don't seem to be a fan of the Kahler's tremolo abilities, how does it function locked? I know it may sound like a weird question because most people who buy guitars with trems won't end up using it as a fixed bridge. I'm just trying to look for the closest imitation of the Fixed Edge iii-8 bridge (personal favorite bridge system) I could get, whether that be the Floyd original, Floyd Special, or Kahler. You can't exactly buy the Ibanez bridge by itself, unfortunately. If anyone else has an obsession with fine tuners or Ibanez bridges, a review on the Agile bridge options would be awesome. :bowdown:

    One more thing worth mentioning: When I inserted all the specs I wanted for the guitar (with the trem and all), the total cost would be just under $1500, which had me thinking I may as well spring for an Ibanez M80M. But I still wanna give Agile a try...

    The complaint I tend to see related to the Kahler seems to be that the strings can potentially lose their seating when dive bombing because of the the saddle design. This obviously wouldn't be a problem if used in the locked position (and it doesn't even seem to be a huge problem, in general, for most people).

    Anyone noticed this beauty yet? 27-30" Renaissance model. Imagine, for once, an acoustic 8-string with a clean-sounding F♯1 string (or E1; whatever floats your particular boat). The possibilities.
    I should clarify that the original multiscale Renaissance models were only 25-27", leaving the 8th string sounding rather weak when kept in standard tuning.

    Man if importing to EU wasn't such a hassle, price-wise and otherwise, I'd get this instantly... The possibilities...

    That'd be pretty sweet to tune like a standard eight, then two more strings on top in minor seconds: low to high F#BEADGBEFF#

    Just ordered one of these:

    Very excited. Both my first 8 and my first multiscale. Coming from a 25.5" Ibanez Universe with a floating trem to a 25.5-28.8" hardtail should be a lot of fun.

    How is the octaves tuning on the individual saddles that agile uses on their guitars?
    I am thinking in buying one 9 strings fanned fret i am a little afraid of this being an issue ( i am mainly a cellist and off tuning pisses me off)

    Sorry, I'm not clear on the question.

    Are you asking about the factory tuning on the Agile 9 string or about intonation adjustment? If the latter, which tuning are you using?
