i had an agile 8 string, it was great especially for the price.
I wouldn't really call them "knock-offs" as they've been around a while and have a strong following within the 7 string community

i was under the assumption that ormsby had some sort of tm on the term multi-scale...

Multi-scales have been around for ages - I think Perry was talking about patenting the bridge system that he came up with rather than the multi-scale concept.

Don't like the squared off fret board & non angled pickup design of the agile for starters. That pickup placement will make the lower notes muddier.

not trying to be a prick but how would it make it sound muddy?
I have hardly any idea when it comes to guitars, but isn't the angle of the pickup is purely aesthetic?
