So far that's a dozen of us.Do you think Kurt will handle this?
he already said eight. i don't know if he wants to make it twelve.
shoot him an e-mail and ask!
i don't want to deal with this whole specs and nimber produced clusterfuck, which is why i'll probably just order a custom from them.
well folks i think a good compromise IS to create it with the trem, because its too easy for you hardtail fans to simply block the trem, unless youre too lazy to spend more than five minutes taking care of your guitars....
it'll feel totally different with a trem man
A hardtail is more than just a blocked trem. I've had blocked trems and hardtails, and tremol-no'd trems. Nothing matches a hardtail when you need a hardtail, but then nothing matches a tremol-no'd guitar for when you're not sure what you might need.
I think it's not a bad idea, btw, to have this thread for the purposes of gathering data. I'm sure some people that don't post here will buy the guitar, though, unless it's an exclusive deal or something.
WTF! there's already 27" interceptors with trems and EMGs out there. the whole point of this is to offer a DIFFERENT interceptor that doesn't exist.
Mahogany wings makes it alone totaly different IMO.
the interceptor pro 25.5" has mahogany wings
color: Tribal green
finish: Clear gloss
I thought the whole point was to get a 27" hardtail Agile.
i thought so too , here's an for all those that want a trem on this guitar... BUY THE VERSION THAT'S ALREADY OUT.
- Fretboard wood: [Ebony]
- Color: [Blue flame]
- Finish: [Clear Gloss]
exactly what i was thinking.
i cant afford to get this at the mo, but i would SERIOUSLY consider picking one up in a year or so.
oh, and for the record-
pickups-EMG(i think i may be slightly out-voted at this point though)
finish-satin(although i dont think its gonna happen)
but tbh i would seriously consider one whatever - finish and colour are cool, but purely superficial, i would prefer maple, but i love ebony too, and i would probs end up changing the pickups anyway.
I'm going to have one post in this topic, just because I was flamed to hell in the other.
The reason I asked Kurt for this was because of my GAS for a Hardtail Loomis. I had previously thought that it was a mahogany body which is why I kept it the same. It's all good though, ash, mahogany, whatever.
A 27" scale would be perfect for the 7th string. EMG 707's are the previously mentioned guitar specs, I didn't think Kurt would do maple so I did not ask him to include it or I would have, but everything else is tailored to mirror aforementioned guitar.
With that said:
Blue/Purple Flame/Violin Red
Finish: Don't care. Satin would be better for the neck, sliding, while gloss would make it look quite nice.
He said this would cost less than the Interceptor, slightly.
Kurt also said this in the other thread :
"Passive would be easier and a bit cheaper if that's what people prefer.
and the majority here seem to prefer passive.
So, when will these be available?.......Kurt?
That's the next question.
i think specs need to be worked out first before anything is available.
Color wise I'd say any transparent color is fine by me (with either flame or quilted maple). Wings either ash or mahogany, no basswood for me, that's what putting me off the current 27". Passive pickups because there's more option to swap those and get the particular sound you are after.
My .02 cents.
(HT : 500 posts YAY!)
how many would be happy with this? :
Agile Interceptor Pro 27"
3 or 5 piece maple neck
ebony f/b (no inlays)
string thru body TOM bridge
flame maple veneer (body and headstock, like the interceptor pro 25.5")
purple/ black/ green/ blue stain (these are all colors used on 'eptors in the past)
- Pickups: [Passive]
- Fretboard wood: [Ebony]
- Color: [Violin Sunburst]
- Finish: [Clear Satin]
Edit: If there are only going to be 8 I guess I'm out of luck
