Yup. And the rest of the sentence was, "if you're leaving them at home in the bedroom."

I also said that birch ply was a better choice if you're going to be taking them on gigs because it does a better job when exposed to impact, moisture, etc.

I also pointed out that the more advanced speaker cabinet designers are going with a thinner, lighter plywood with a bracing structure that reduces weight and increases strength.

In addition, I mentioned that there were some really advanced folks building cabinets capable of handling over 900W out of composite (essentially foam and fiberglass) materials that were MUCH lighter than birch, handled impact and moisture better, and that were stiffer (couldn't be rattled by high-volume sound as easily).

Was there a question that related to the current discussion?

I say go for it if you're GASing for an Agile and you're in the UK.

I did and she's a beaut.

And it's not like it's my only axe and I desperately want to say "OMG it's better than a Gibson".
I have a Gibson LP and the Agile actually holds its own, no question. Is it better? I wouldn't say so, but it just isn't far off at all.

In fact I would say you're not a true (singlecut/LP shaped) guitar enthusiast if you don't own an Agile.
After all you're not buying it for the badge/brand.

The only reason I haven't gone back to Rondo to get a semi custom 3200 is because I'm getting a custom monster elsewhere that will make you all go "WTF?"

I just barely bought me an Agile 3010SE for $257 out the door, so to speak. She was on sale for $225, and then spent like $20 in shipping and added like $10 for 3 day.

It might be cause I had real crap guitars leading up to this purchase, but for $250, this is the greatest guitar I have ever played, and definitely the best I ever owned.

After my experience with the Agile, I have to say I wouldn't buy any other guitar unless from Rondo, at least until I have like 2k plus to spend. This might sound insane, but at least, she plays better than the Studios I have brought home, but off record, I compare her to LP Standards.

You seriously can't buy any new guitar for under $250 out the door that would even compare. Even if I paid normal price of $330, you just can't get 1/16 AA Flame Maple tops, ebony fingerboard with abalone inlays, let alone a 1 piece set mahogany neck, 2 piece solid mahogany body, bound body/neck/head, and alnico 5 pick ups.
