Well, which would you choose and why?
I recently received my RG8WNF, and after about a day or two I remember that rondomusic has some Septor 827s going for $299. This made me seriously regret forgetting about the deal on the septors and purchasing the RG8.
(Not to mention a few flaws here and there on the RG8)
So, what should I do, stick with the RG8WNF, or return it and order a Septor 827, save $100, and hopefully get a better/equal guitar?
Here are some pros and cons to each (Please add more that you can think of)
Pros: Interesting look (looks really brutal to me, the walnut finish combined with the black hardware), the neck profile, walnut strips in the neck. That's about it.
Cons: The soapbar pickups, bridge (I just cant stand those kind of bridges without pieces on the side, think hipshot or agile), various flaws that I have noticed (chips in the wood, issues on the back of the neck, etc... mostly minor, but still)
Pros: Flamed maple top, green finish (Something different than my other guitars), the Cepheus pickups (I have heard great things about them, including they are based on Lundgren M8s), lower cost, different bridge, reverse headstock (Personal preference)
Cons: Have no idea what the neck profile will be like (Loved the RG8s), no walnut strips (I doubt they have that much impact on the tone, but aesthetically they look really nice), Agiles are known to be hit and miss (Albeit great customer service)
So, which would you choose, and why?
Please feel free to list anything you have to say about either of the guitars.
I'd PROBABLY go with the RG8. But that is me.
