There are wads of boutiqu fanned 89s but not that many quality versions that are not crazy price. IMHO the AGILE line above starter are pretty nice axes. Here is a 9 string with FANNED FRETS AND A TREM!!! For $1300 which is preaty reasonable. BUt to each his own smile.gif

This might seem stupid, but why are both the pickup and the bridge diagonal? huh.gif

The pickup is diagonal to keep thick 8th and 9th strings clear sounding, while the light strings not too thin. The bridge is shaped this way to help make the scale length different without fanning the frets too much.
You can find many guitars (also 6 strings) with diagonal pickups as well. It helps balance the strings.

I have nothing against the price, just saying in my experience all of what Rondo sells are extremely hit and miss (which is evident by the Agile NGD threads on SSO and MG. The Agiles have much better quality control than the Douglas and SX series guitars, but with an Ibanez at least I'd be able to try one in the store, be able to trust the quality more, and have an easy return police. None of which Rondo/Agile seem to match.

Again, just my opinion... I've tried some great Agile guitars, just the quality control is too varied for me to ever consider any single model "quality instrument for the price", they're all too different.

I gotta say I"M WITH YOU THERE!!!! I have NEVER seen an AGILE in the music stores I frequent and I"m in a Major Metropolitan Area. I have seen pretty much every IBANEZ I can think of, even the brand new 8 string that is their "starter" model which is not bad at all by the way. Goes around $400 but not fanned sad.gif

The AGILE guitars have always looked amazing on the page, in vids, etc. Keep waiting for one to show up used in a guitar shop and it just hasn't happened.
