I saw they used one for recording Clarity, but they went straight back to using J-Custom Ibbys, ESPs, and Caparisons. :lol:I think we may generally be outside the age group these guys seem to be after.
I *think* one of the guys in Protest The Hero plays one, but that's all I know.
They're pretty much targeted at the sevenstring.org crowd. RG-ish shapes, and available with fanned frets and/or many strings.I don't get the appeal or reason they even exist. The bodies are all the same old thing that other companies have perfected, the prices aren't in line with what you find in your average guitar shop and honestly it doesn't seem like they're offering anything you can't get elsewhere with more bang for your buck.
Am I missing something? Other than someone trying to make a buck...
Well, Agile/SX (Rondo Music) became an Internet only company, but they didn't start out like that (when they opened in 1959). They own their factory in Korea; they don't have their guitars made for them by Pearless or World or someone else, and they used to make the Korean guitars for other much bigger brands as well. They had a very big store in New Jersey for years, which is where the word of mouth started.Agile is the success story of making an internet-only guitar company. They also don't charge like $1000+ unless you get one of their extreme guitars.
Schecter isn't internet-only. They've been in the business for 40 years.
Schecter has a bit of a different history though, it's not straight ownership from '76 to now, it's been 3 completely different ownership groups with completely different philosophies over the years. There was nothing of the company except Dave Schecter's name when the second owners sold that to the current owner in '87 either.Yeah I know that, i was just referring to the vast majority of them being made in Asia
