okay... so in an effort to stay un-banned
agile intrepid dual pro 828. i'm liking it a lot so far, the jump from 7 to 8 strings seems much bigger than the jump from 6 to 7. its going to take some getting used to, but i enjoy having another extra string to play around with.
the pickups aren't near as bad as i thought that they would be. they are still pretty muddy, but the low F# is really clear, and it growls pretty good.
i also really like the neck heel. much more comfortable than the bolt on of my schecter was. i can really see why agiles have been getting such good reviews, and its nice to have a good playing, well constructed lefty 8 string to go to.
the only thing i cannot stand is the placement of the toggle switch. in between the volume and tone but that is probably personal preference more than anything else.
Nice! I'm actually jamming with my JCA20 right now
Also, you can totally change up the location of those knobs/switches
