    NGD: Just spent $500 on an Agile , am I crazy?

    I found a neck-thru Agile Septor Pro 727 with maple fretboard and stock Seymour Duncan blackouts. The only 7-string I've had/played before is a Schecter KM7 MKI in frost white with ebony board, and absolutely loved it. Got that one for just about $550 so I'm hoping this older Agile will...

    Can someone translate Ishibashi's "70-80% fret life"

    I am looking at a few Historics R8/R9 that are listed by Ishibashi as having "70-80%" or "80%" fret life. Anyone have experience with how this translates realistically?

    Upgrade from Marshall Origin 5C to 20C worth 300 bucks?

    I just picked up an Origin 5C figuring i'd bypass the built in 8" and use one of my cabs. Then I realized it just has one volume control, as opposed to the 20C that has a volume and a gain (as demo'd brilliantly by Brett Kingman). The GC near me has a used 20C, figure it will cost me the 5C in...
