Kurt... I don't even know where to begin. I received my guitar and case today, TWO WEEKS before it was slated to ship. That's incredible. I thought that's where my shock would end.
And then I unboxed the guitar.
I'm blown away. I've owned a lot of guitars and some much more expensive. The Agile is now the best guitar I own. The quality of the craftsmanship is just so unbelievable. The ebony fretboard is so speedy, my fingers glide along the satin finished neck, and - I will admit I had my concerns about pickups I had not heard of - but I had no reason to. Those things rip. I had to tear myself away from it, but I needed to send my gratitude. A huge THANK YOU to all who were involved in making this instrument, and thank you for getting it to me so promptly. You have earned a loyal Agile fan. -Jordan

Question: Why should I consider an 8, 9 or 10 string guitar?
Answer: Playing an extended range guitar has several advantages that can enhance a musician's abilities and expression. One of the most notable advantages is the increased range, which allows players to access a wider range of notes. This opens up opportunities for complex, dissonant chords and unique, expressive melodies. Additionally, extended range guitars are known for their versatility, as they offer more options for chord voicings, tunings, and playing styles. This makes them well suited for a wide range of genres and musical styles, from metal and rock to classical and experimental music.
Another advantage of extended range guitars is the increased sustain, as the longer scale length of the guitar provides more tension in the strings, resulting in a longer lasting note. Furthermore, the extra strings give more overall tension to the neck, which improves tuning stability. Finally, extended range guitars allow for more expression and nuance in playing, as the player has access to a wider range of notes and can create more complex harmonies and melodies.
