Sooo I really like all 3 but whats better for the money.

First of all, is the quality of parts justification for the Alexi 600 over the 200?

and is the Agile better than both or one or niether spec wise (I know guitars vary per guitar)

Thanks everybody

The 600 is a massive improvement over the 200. The 600 is awesome the 200 is garbage IMHO.

Original Floyd Rose and a Blackout, pretty awesome combo.

Not sure about the rondo. But I would kill for the Alexi 600.

Well Price difference, money is kinda hard to come by.
Im selling my Wii to buy a new guitar plus I got 200 dollars so Im getting Approx. 450-500.
The rondo would be 100 off, and the 600 would be 700 some off

Why would you even consider rondo if you are looking at getting a 600? Forget Rondo bro.

That's what I was thinking. The 600 is an amazing instrument, a Metal Machine!

While the 600 is a huge step up from the 200, it's not a massive step up from the Agile, especially seeing as it costs almost double
Personally I'd go for the Agile, I prefer having 2 pickups and can't really justify spending twice as much on a more limited guitar which is very similar

I agree about the two pups. But the Agile does have a licensed FR, not sure how Rondo's are. And the build quality could be lacking.

At least you know your getting a great instrument from LTD.

The agile could be great or a dud. It's not like your gonna be able to find one to play somewhere.

That is true, I'm basing my post purely on things I've heard from people who've bought Agiles. And you could still fit an OFR to the Agile and it would cost a lot less than the LTD

If you're in Europe, I would suggest the ESP SV. It's like an Alexi with two pickups and other improvements.

If money is an isuue, just save up more and get the 600. You will be glad you did in the long run. I know its hard to wait, but good things come to those who wait. haste makes waste.

600 is a nice guitar but is lacking like most signatures do firstly one bridge pickup and one volume makes the guitar lose its flair if u ask me. and if u did get it get the EMG HZ4 not the black out why Alexi switched is beyond me matter of opinion i guess. the agile has one of the most famous pickup combos ever and one of the best sounding. the original floyd is better but the agile one is not bad u'll just find the springs buzz a bit more and u can remedy that by wrapping a thick elastic band around them and the sustain won't be as much but then again the agile is mahogany which is denser then alder and will offer more sustain neways despite the bridge. the 600 has the benefit of a thru neck but ud probably be just as happy with a set neck. Also the 600 has no tone knob which some people deem unnecessary but i don't think i could play a guitar without one just cause it opens up that more tone possibilities. since there both Rhoads rip off bodies for the most part i personally like the basic smooth and sleek one on the 600 but the agile is very bitchin' and the cross inlays on ebony is sweet. ESP is a bigger name naturally but i think the agile is a better guitar. It'll sustain more has an excellent pickup combo gives u a little more tonal diversity and would be ideal so go agile. hope that helps

Go with the Agile it's a lot of guitar for the money. I have never tried that model but I have tried other Agile's and they make great some guitars. A $600 Agile is about the same as buying a $1200 brand name guitar, your just not paying for the big name. All these guitars you listed are probably made in China anyway so quality is going to be pretty much the same.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

As said above, definately go with the Alexi 600 if you can afford it. If not, get the Agile.

I like the RR/SV guitar shapes because they are different, they arent as rediculous as the others (bc rich cough cough) and I want something different.
