Agile AS-820 vs Peavey JF-1




They both cost $350..

In reviews for both, people swear they are comparable to a $1000 Gibson.

They look almost exactly the same, but I like the looks of the Agile SLIGHTLY better (between the finish, the inlays, and the tuners).

I'm leaning toward getting the Agile just for the slight difference in looks, but I have to wonder if it's really best to choose a knock off over a name brand.

Any suggestions? I plan to use it for things like psychobilly, post-punk, and outlaw country.

I just found out that shipping to Korea for the Agile will cost $65 less than for the Peavey (but still $160, plus customs fees ) so I guess that decides it.

Agile (almost) always makes good value guitars. My friend owns an Agile AS series, if I ever get a hollowbody I'm getting one too.

The Peavey looks like a much nicer guitar.

Could very well be the work of good/poor photography, but the horns on that Agile just look really dumb.

a small number of low-end peavey's have rolled through my store and i always get some playing time on them. every one has just felt like crap, nothing like their American made stuff. I'd say go with the agile, i used to own one of their 8 strings and i loved it.
