It’s 2017! We all made it to a new year. According to exit polls half of you feel like 2017 is gonna be just great and the other half…well not so much!
In spite of whatever side of the political coin you fall on may we suggest something that we think would absolutely bring the world together. And what would that be? Well if everyone got a new guitar in 2017 we’d be willing to bet this world would be a much better place!
With that in mind let us take this opportunity to suggest some guitars that we think would make great additions to your collection.
The Agile Interceptor is available in 7 string or 8 string configurations. This model, depending on features, can be found for anywhere from the $300 to $800 dollar range.
The main features of the guitar are a double cutaway arch top mahogany body, reverse headstock, adjustable truss rod and Grover tuners.
The guitar comes in either 25 1/2″, 27″ or 28″ scales. There is also a choice between ebony, rosewood and maple materials for the fretboard.
The Interceptor can be purchased with either a bolt on neck or neck-thru construction. Depending on which variation of the Interceptor you get there is also a difference in pickups between the cheaper interceptors and the more expensive ones.
The cheaper Interceptors usually are equipped with the Cepheus pickups while the more expensive ones come equipped with Seymour Duncan or EMG pickups.
