Re: Mess Around 7 string?

In my humble opinion, you can't go wrong with an RG7321. People talk about the quality being questionable on the indonesian-made ones, but I have not yet seen a single dodgy RG7321, whether they be korean or indonesian.
Now, I have not yet played, nor seen, an Agile guitar in the flesh, but as far as customer feedback goes, they apparently have had quality control issues in the past - mostly related to the fretjob. Someone else needs to chime in here with reliable feedback as far as Agile goes, as I can't provide it - but you can not go wrong with an RG7321.
The Agile may or may not be a better buy, but the RG7321 more than stands up for itself.

Re: Mess Around 7 string?

I own a RG7321, and I'm very pleased with it. It's certainly not on par with the RG1527, but for it's price I don't think it can be beat. The only issue I've had with my RG7321 is that the frets could use a dressing, but I personally feel that most guitars under $800 or so could as well. The pickups are OK, I don't find them to be quite as bad as most say, but they can be muddy depending upon how much gain you're using. I am, however, going to drop a set of Seymour Duncan Blackouts in it.

That said, many people on other forums swear by Agile guitars. I've never played one myself, so I can't help you there.

Re: Mess Around 7 string?

Between the two it depends on what you want. The Ibanez RG7321 is a great guitar to build on, the agile interceptor is a great guitar in terms of value if you don't want to screw with anything. I've actually had both of them in my shop for setup/upgrades and BOTH needed a fretlevel. The neck on the RG7321 was definitely much more comfortable than the agile which in my opinion is way too chunky. The overall build quality is about the same, maybe a tad bit better on the agile but not by a whole lot, but if I had to recommend or buy an entry level 7 string myself, it'd be a RG7321.
