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".

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.
