If you are looking for an 8-string guitar but are on a budget than of course you should look at any of the 8 string guitars that Agile has to offer.
However, if you are looking for someone to steer you towards a guitar for you to consider, than may we suggest the Agile Legacy 827.
This is a guitar that immediately jumps out and catches the eye with its interesting finish.
The Legacy 827 is actually a new guitar in the Agile 8-string lineup.
As the 827 suggests, this Legacy is a 8-string 27” scale guitar. The body is a solid mahogany double cutaway that has an arch top and is light weight. The top is a 3 millimetre maple top.
The fretboard is made of rosewood with the position markers on the side of the neck. The neck is a uniform radius throughout to allow for faster playing.
In addition, the guitar neck is equipped with an adjustable truss rod to allow you to adjust the neck in case of alterations from humidity, temperature or new strings.
This is a bolt-on neck construction guitar which can be looked at as a positive in that if you damage the neck you can always bolt on a new one.
Moving on to the hardware this bad boy comes with the Legacy 827 doesn’t disappoint.
The Cepheus T-7 wide throw tune-o-matic bridge with graphite saddles is a string through body setup with offset holes for improved sustain.
As with all the Agile guitars the tuners are Grover with 18-1 tuning ratio so you can really get that fine-tuning.
Lastly the pickups are Cepheus 7 string passive humbuckers for a great tone.
This is a really decent 8-string guitar offering by Agile guitars.
This guitar just looks really cool with the reverse headstock and what really sets it off is the blue quilt finish combined with the natural finish on the top of the guitar.
It really is something different from the rest of the guitars that Agile offers.
The best part of this guitar is the price that you get all this for. We think this is a pretty sweet deal that you should definitely take a look at if you are in the market for an 8-string guitar but still want to be able to make your rent payment.
