i don't know much about either, but the agile looks to be higher quality, and i've heard good things about agiles.
however, if it came down to color, the epiphone looks nicer.

Chemically, that's incorrect. It probably will wear off pretty fast though

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.

the Agile 3000 is better, might be a really good investment.

yeah but i really want a guitar with a floyd rose in it.....and ive always liked les pauls

get the agile. the floyd in it isnt that bad but if you star lifting the guitar by it then its not gonna last to long. but if you use it here and there it should last a few years. and when the gold does tarnish just replace those parts with better ones.

After having my agile for about a week now, I can tell you exactly what to look forward to.
The strings they use SUCK, change em the day you get your guitar.
Expect to give the guitar a full setup (a given with most new guitars these days).
Expect a feeling of "wow this is a nice guitar" and answering the question "What you pay for that, $1000? " often. (No joke, I've been asked that question, reworded, at least 5 times this week.)
