Agile Renaissance 8X - the better multiscale guitar option?

Agile Renaissance 8X

This might be the better option for those thinking about getting a multiscale guitar.

Why? Easy answer: It's an electric-acoustic.

Above is the Agile Renaissance 8X. It has 8 strings and fanned frets. The body and sides are mahogany and the top is spruce, meaning yes it will project properly.

My standard complaint with electric multiscale guitars is that the bass strings sound awful. The reason they sound bad is because multiscale pickups aren't voiced for bass strings, so you end up with this nasty, farty sound.

With acoustic however, that's a different story. Now we're in a territory where everything can sound right. Acoustic instruments are far better at handing more range. Both the treble and bass strings sound right in their "space," so to speak.

Hear it below and you'll understand why an acoustic multiscale might be the better option over the all-electric. Every note can be heard on any string played. And that's important.
