Definitely the agile

ive also heard the agile has some problems with it being heavy?
is that true?

Les Pauls are suppose to be heavy. The ESP is made out of a light basswood while the agile has mahogany like on a real les paul

Not the Agile, every good Les Paul model.


Heavy is a good thing, because first of all, you'll have more sustain (When you play a note, and simply leave it, it'll last longer), it sounds VERY warm, has tons of low end, and in general can take a beating.

Get the Agile if you're a man.

I tried it out in store.

Great neck, nice n light, good tuning stability. Overall a good guitar. I didn't but it cause I generally only buy guitars over a grand now.

Go for the Agile. Better made and better sound, unless you wanna play metal. Plus, the Agile is set-neck and made of Mahogany.

How about going to a guitar store and actually trying them out


the problem with the Agile is that it's only available online, so you can't go to a store and try it...
