Hey guys, how is this guitar?
http://www.rondomusic.com/al2500blueflame.html

I need a 2nd guitar with a hardtail for alternate tunings as I just ordered a guitar (will be my main) with a floating trem.

I've heard nothing but great things about Agile, but mostly about their AL-3X00 guitars... how does the 2500 series stack up? The specs are pretty much the same execpt it has a 2 piece mahogany body/2 piece neck, instead of solid mahogany/1 piece neck.

I had an Epi LP studio for about 5 years that was total crap, I hated it, and it cost me $450 at the time. Everyone says that Agiles are better quality than most epi's... so if I can get a nice working guitar for $240, that'd be great (Not to mention they look $1000 more expensive then they are). I do intend on putting locking tuners and maybe buying a better bridge+nut.

If there is a better guitar for <$300, let me know. I'm basically looking for a gig-able cheap guitar that I can later mod the hell out of.

I've never gotten to play one, but I've heard tons about them. They seem to be pretty much the best les paul copies you can get in that price range. I would go for it.

Never played a 2500, but the 3100 are really amazing. I would save a few more pennies for a 3100.

Agile's are good guitars. Pretty much on par with a good Epiphone. They're actually made in the same Korean factory that used to produce most of Epiphone's guitars.

Because I bend in such an unorthodox fashion; the notes kinda slide up and slide down...

You don't really need locking tuners if you have a tune-o-matic bridge. That's kind of the point.

Anyway, there's the Dauntless in a blue flame with duncan design humbuckers. It's basically an AL-2800 with better pups.

nah, the Dauntless series is below the 2500 series. It goes Al2000->Dauntless->2500->2800->etc. according to this: http://www.rondomusic.com/alspec.html

The Dauntless is 3 piece body and no headstock binding, while the 2500 is 2 piece body with single binding on the headstock. Though the Dauntless has a AA grade maple top and duncan design pickups, while the 2500 just has A-grade maple (Thus explaining why the dauntless is more expensive, but of less quality). Also the 2800 has hand-filed frets while the 2500 and Dauntless don't..

I'm actually thinking of saving more and getting this:

It's so beautiful.
