Summary:

Agile retails a number of different 7 string guitars. Among others, the Interceptor, Septor, Intrepid and Pendulum models. Lets take a quick look at each of them.

Looking for more than 6 ? 8 is too much ? There are a bunch of 7 string guitars retailed by Rondo Music under the Agile brand. Let’s take a look at some of them.

Agile 7 String

After the nineties, there was a massive growth of bands and guitarist using seven string guitars. What was elitist and exclusive some time ago became more popular after the era of guitar heroes and the rise of nu metal bands. Of course we are talking about the now much more widely available 7 string guitars. While these guitars became much more common, the price of these guitars was usually high. This has changed in the last few years, and the best example is the different series of 7 string Agile guitars, which offer a fantastic value, with great prices, with the Interceptor, Septor, Intrepid and even some AL models.

Agile AL-727

Rondo Music retails this special version of the AL model, which features 7 strings instead of six. The Agile AL-727 has all of the features and advantages of the Les Paul guitar series allowing an increased flexibility because of the seventh string. Players of classic rock, hard rock, blues and the kinds, that are looking for a seven string guitar but do not like the more radical guitars that usually feature seven strings (we are talking about guitars aimed at metal and progressive rock) will love this instrument. Models on the AL family are just a few, since most of the players looking for a seven string axe usually play other kind of guitars, but nonetheless this might be the one for you, take a look at them.

What you get with the AL-2000/AL-3000 seven strings:

  • Solid mahogany
  • 27” Scale
  • 22 or 24 frets, depending on model

Agile Intrepid

Most of the Intrepid models are aimed at 8 string guitar players, so you won’t find many 7 string guitars in this line. However, now and then some models become available. For those who like the unusual body shape of the Intrepid guitars, make sure to check often for stock, and be fast because usually these guitars sell fast. Also, some multi-scale 7 stringers may become available from time to time. With the 7 String Intrepid you get:

    Dear Agile players,

    I’m a Jackson played and I’ve always loved them. Recently, I’ve had to sell my 7 string soloist to pay for rent, but I’ve finally got enough revenue again to afford to buy a 7 string again. What can you tell me about playability? I know they won’t play exactly the same as my old soloist, but I’m looking for comparison, style, tone, sound, and general playability. I’d love to try one out and I’ve heard many good things about these guitars, let me know what the Agile community thinks. I’d love to buy one, I just want to know some opinions and specs.

    I cant believe that i now have a place to go when i need a 7 or an 8 string that fits me. I just got done playing my friends Agile Interceptor 727 with a black flame finish, which he had customized with a Floyd Rose 7 string Pro, Seymour Duncan Distortion neck pick up, and a Seymour Duncan Nazgul bridge pickup. I love how his model is a neck through design and has a very comfortable position when when i play classical style. you guys do a really awesome job and i want to let you know that you guys have changed a washburn player into an agile player!!

    I am a right handed due to an injury turned left handed guitarist, and as such pickins are slim, I cant walk into a guitar store and just try all these wonderful guitars that everybody talks about. I was needing a 7 string for developing internet lessons( for a website that I hope I have up and running shortly).I basically had 1 choice under a grand and that is the hellraiser lefty 7 string, but I cannot shell out a grand for something I haven’t even played when most stores in my area wouldn’t let me return a special order that I don’t like.
    So, on a whim , I decided to order a seven string hawker.
    the cons . the case that the website prompted me to buy with it needed a 2 inch thick piece of cardboard to keep it soundly in the case. There were a few dead places in the neck/action-but the action was wonderful, a few adjustments with the action and minor fret filings ( to keep the action low like I like it)and it was workin for me.
    now the pros( dang this is gettin lengthy)
    the action- love it, the neck awesome. I t would be great to have an original floyd, I can see where things will probably fatigue, but have no problem staying in tune.

    bottom line this is my go to guitar to the point that I will be selling my(all six string guitar)hellraiser, ec-1000 and jackson DNKY so I can buy another one
