Rondo has stocked them on and off again, even before the release of the M8M.

I would love to own one, though. :agreed:

Really? Crazy somehow I missed them. Anyone here try one out? have one currently that can chip in some thoughts on them?

Have they been doing the 27-30 scale 7's for awhile as well or is that at least something new? Of the 2 this one would be the one im more likely to get, so again if anyone has had any experience please let me know what you thought.

Drop a lundgren in that 830 and you're good to go!

I think only custom orders could avail of the 27"-30" scale. My mate has one and the clarity is insane.

I thought about getting the 27"-30" fanned fret one, but I wish I could try one out before I bought it. That being said, idk any stores that carry anything close to these :scream:

I've been eyeing that Intrepid 830 forever already, but I haven't amounted the funds yet. Given the specs, it may have been a custom build that was bailed on by whomever ordered it. Needless to say, it's awesome and if I could ever muster up the cash, I'd definitely buy it. Too bad I desperately need a new car at the moment, or else I would've snagged it a long time ago.

Anyone know if Agile's cepheus pickups use quick disconnects? I'd buy up that multiscale in a second if I could throw in some blackouts.

^ They do not. That 30 inch scale one reminds me of just how gigantic those Intrepid bodies are lol.

^The description is actually taken directly from their website...


They had a similar model, about a year ago, that I almost bought. Same charcoal colors except with an ash body. Unfortunately it sold out as soon as I got the money :wallbash:

I'm kinda glad I didn't get the full 30" though. I'm happy with my 28" septor as it fits almost perfectly in my hands!

I'm still waiting for them to bring back their "ghost" bodies for 8 strings :wavey:

or an 8 string texan/Blackat copy

Get a Texan 7-string and string it with whatever your standard 8 would be strung with and tune to E, F, F#, whatever you want. That's what I did and so far it's worked great!

I just want the body shape! I have no idea what that single coil would sound like with a low E
