The only difference between the two is the colour of the hardware, and the inclusion of a bone nut in the second one.

So does it really matter which one i get?



Well do you want the bone nut or the graphite nut? Do you want nickel or gold hardware?

What is the difference between the bone and graphite nut?

You're not going to notice any difference between the two. Get the prettier one.

If you don't already have a preference between bone and graphite, it's nothing to worry about. They're both good materials for a nut.

Obviously, the price makes a difference. If they're the same price, go for the prettier one, but if the prettier one is like $100 more, it's clearly not worth it.

Gold can wear down pretty quick compared to chrome or black hardware. That's the only drawback I can think of... oh also it's an Agile . I kid, I kid. Just get the one you like the looks of.

They're the same guitar, except one has nickel hw the other gold, one has trapezoidal inlays the other block, one has a graph tech nut the other bone...

What do you mean which one is better? They're the same guitar.

If the gold is properly applied over a proper nickel base, it shouldn't tarnish.
