Hey bro thanks for the response! I know I should give any guitar a proper setup. That probably made me sound like an idiot haha should have worded it better. I'm no newbie when it comes to guitar, but when it comes to setups I have no idea. I usually take my guitars to a local music store tech. What all did you have to get done to it? As far as the agile intrepid, I meant 728 not 828 my bad. I used to own one of those cheap ass douglas 727s which actually wasn't half bad for being $190 new. I'm torn between the intrepid and the 7422pb. The intrepid is in bloodburst which I don't dig so much and I already have a red guitar but the scale length would be ideal. Buy I have alot of experience with RGS and that blue ibby is soooOooOo sexy!!! Anyway, sorry for such long comments but you are the first person I have came across that owns one and nowhere near me has any in stock. I have owned the 7421 so if it's anything like that I will definitely like it.
