Hell of a lot better then anything you'd get from epiphone or squire thats for damn sure.

Once you get to play one yourself it's pretty obvious why they have so many fans. Especially the higher up LP copies.


Played em, they're nothing special.

I'm going to bed now, so flaming me for my response will bear you no fruits.

Good night.

i have an al 2800 i love it, it was about 400$ canadian after shipping an duty and it was worth every penny. Easily comparable to an epi les paul custom which considerably more expensive. they really are great guitars, come with great set ups and there is no buzz on the neck at all. Also to the tuners are top notch! before buying an epiphone i think if there is a way you should try an agile. I can't stand up for the quality of the 2000s because i havn't tried one. I've only played my 2800 and a 3000map. the best part of the agiles is that should you hate it, you can return it and get your money back no questions askeD!

Any LP type guitar is great for metal!

You can always put on heavier strings if you want to drop tune. I believe all the LP ones come with 10's.

^Well they came stock with 10's. I personally use 11's on all my shorter scale guitars to make up for the difference in the tension. I also tend to tune down to C alot with my Agile. Once I get my Hondo in playing order I will setup my Agile for C and leave it like that.

Well i wouldn't say ANY LP type guitar is good for metal and i doubt a completely stock Agile would be a good metal guitar. swap the pickups out for some Dimarzios or SDs and you've got a great metal guitar

What would you guys think of an Agile AL-2000 and a Roland 20x for a starter setup so I can learn to play? Ill probably upgrade to a 3000 after I get good, but the amp should last a little.

I have an agile al3000 and an sx gg4 and I don't think they're all that good.

hi guys, i just recieved 200 dollars from a family member, and i was wondering if it would be a good idea to purchase the AL2000, or Valkyrie 3, or should i save up and buy one of the higher end Agiles?

I would personally say an Agile AL-2000. Everyone from reviews I've read says they are on par with $500 guitars and they look pretty sleek imo.

I'd have to side with nexteyenate on this one. Its a very nice starter setup. I've seen people spend alot more money on total crap and this setup would blow alot of the kids I know out of the water.

For the most part all AL's are very good guitars. It just depends on what you want really. Would you prefer the ebony fretboard on the 3000+ models, a uniform neck on the 2800's and slightly wider nut widths. No matter what you do its not going to be a horrible decision. Just pick what better suits you.

Why not? If your really a metal player then you've probably already got a "metal" amp. Toss in a thick sounding LP and your good to go. Even with stock pups!
