Agile Septor

http://www.rondomusic.net/septor.html

I was thinking about getting a RG7321, but this thing is growing more attractive by the moment. It's pretty much the same as a RG7321, but with a different style of bridge, and one MAJOR improvement; It has Blazes in it. Does anyone own this guitar, and if so, what are your thoughts on it?

Also, it's headstock looks strangely familiar.

Re: Agile Septor

It's also got a much thicker neck on it than the 7321, but overall they're supposed to be reasonably nice guitars.

I just wish the Septor had the flame maple top of the Interceptor

If you get one, let us know how it is.

Re: Agile Septor

I´ve heard the build quality fluctuates pretty wildly between every specimen.

Re: Agile Septor

Sorry, I don't own one, but it looks like it can't decide if it wants to be an Ibanez, Jackson or Schector. You can put blazes in a 7321 easy enough. I'd pass.

Re: Agile Septor

You like the feel of the tune-o-matic bridge? I can't stand it.. would prefer the 7321/7421/7621/421/321 style bridge.... less pokey.

The combination of the Blazes and the ebony fretboard are what make it tempting, though if I get one I'll probably shave the hell out of the neck as that thing is THICK.

Re: Agile Septor

I don't like the look of it.

In my opinion the bottom of the body is too wide, compared to the top, because the waist is a bit far up.

And, well, I'm not an inverted-headstock-kind-of-guy.

Then, the 7321 has a 5-piece neck, which I think looks great and adds a lot of stability, probably that's why the Septor has a thicker neck.


I own and love a 7321 but I haven't played a Septor yet.
Comparing these 2 guitars and keeping in mind how simple it is to swap pickups, I'd say the 7321 delivers more bang for your buck, eventually.

If you prefer the look or colors of the Agile, go try it out somewhere, and since Agile's quality seems to be fluctuating, try not to mail-order but instead buy the cery guitar that you tried yourself.

a 350mm radius is very thin...compared to the 430mm radius of the 7 string wizards.

Re: Agile Septor

I have the interceptor, and I sanded the neck. It's going thru a bunch of tung oil coats though, so I haven't tried it out yet.
