After getting jaded with Ibanez and basswood guitars in general and talking to a few friends on aim, I decided to sell my 1527. Then this beautiful Agile Septor 727 RN came up for sale on here and I had to have it. When it first arrived last night - I did play it for a while. It sounded so vibrant and organically vocal acoustically that I knew it would blow me away plugged in. I just love the various combinations I have with the coil-tapping option. I love the 3 way switch, just will rotate it so that its facing front to back instead of up-down. Just more intuitive that way. Now the real part - the neck. This neck feels nice. Sure its a bit bigger than my 1527/wizard I neck but tell you whats its hella comfy. Its like all my life I have been wearing thongs and now I found some Fruit of the Looms. Its a bit nicer and I feel this neck can really help with left hand fatigue. Since I don't shred (read: yet) I dont mind it and feel like I will grow with it. The one thing I did do was find the paint/clear slowing me down. So I just grabbed some #0000 steel wool and rubbed the neck down for a bit to get it satiny. Then took the smallest amount of lemon oil and rubbed/buffed it into the neck . A lot better. The quality and craftsmanship is definitely up there with Schecters and Ibanez. I can't tell you the difference in terms of fret dressing, fret edges and fretboard from the "Prestige" Ibanez I used to own. Now I am not knocking Ibanez but they have got to wake up and smell the roses. Overall I couldn't be more pleased with this guitar.... Agile/Rondo has got a winner in this combo. BTW baritone scale doesn't feel any different from normal 25.5".

Bought this with some extra money I had lying around after Christmas. I had heard promising things about Agile guitars in the past like "Good guitars for a good price" and I have to say I agree. This was my first 7-string guitar and I'm quite pleased with it
Amazing guitar from a relatively "unknown" company.
5.0 out of 5 stars One of my top guitars so far
After searching for 7 string guitars at certain budget I found great reviews of the Agile brand and what I found interesting was the quality materials and specs that were offered for such low price. After hearing the guitar on reviews, comparing to another ones in the same price range I had to give it a shot...and WHAT A GOOD SHOT IT WAS. I probably wouldn't trade it for another one. I have it in a Drop C'ish tunning (7th string in G) and it just kills it, and those Cepheus do an amazing work too! I don't think I'm changing those pickups in a long time. The action feels so comfortable and effortless to go from one fret to the other (and is my first 7 string). The headstock is a piece of art, and the finish is also something to frame on a museum, what a nice work. The only negative things that I can think of is that the neck pickup is not properly aligned (a little to much the right, not completely straight) and the back plate for the electronic components came kind of scratched, a little bit, but since is not that visible I can let it pass, just because of what an STUNNING instrument it is in it's whole. If you're looking for a great quality 7 string guitar and not just "a cheap one" I can personally recommend you Agile guitars any time.
My name is Victor Martin, I am in the Army and currently in the Kuwait, and other places. I purchased one of your guitars from amazon and had it shipped to me, the packaging was excellent and i received it with no damage.. Septor 727... it is an amazing guitar, the feel and sound is incredible. It was not at all what I expected for the price, the quality is top notch. I just wanted to let you all know that I love the guitar and plan to buy some more.

Question: What is the advantage of playing a 27" scale guitar?
Answer: The extra long scale length qualifies this guitar as a baritone. You can play very low notes while still maintaining the proper string tension.
Question: What are the strings for the Agile Septor 727?
Answer: The guitar is set up with the lowest string to tuned to B, followed by the standard tuning of E, A, D, G, B, and E. It is possible, however, to tune it differently to suit your preference.
Question: What is the difference between passive and active pickups?
Answer: A passive pickup is a magnetic pickup which directly sends the signal from your string, through the wood, into the pickup, and then into the amp which creates the most dynamic sound you can produce. Many artists prefer a passive pickup which enables a multitude of tones. Jeff Beck, Darrell Abbott, Eddie Van Halen, and Jimi Hendrix are prime examples of passive pickup users. An active pickup is powered by a separate battery stored in the guitar enabling higher output and overall balanced frequency. Many artists who are looking for a consistent sound such as in metal music use active pickups to achieve a powerful and consistent tone without compromising quality. Kirk Hammett and Kerry King use active electronics which enable them to push their amps near their limits and still retain a tight and focused clarity in their sound.
Question: I received my Agile Septor and there is some fret buzz. What do I do?
Answer: Your guitar was set up and buzz free when it was shipped. However the neck may have moved during shipment. This video should help: Set Up Tips. The video describes the set up for a 6 string guitar, but the concepts are the same for your 7 string guitar.
