For my Agile AL 3100 I put on craigslist I was offered:

"a very good condition 1997 Epiphone dot with Dimarzio 36th Anniversary PAF B&N Pups. Tusq Nut, newly wired electronics, and Hard Case"

Depends on whether you really want a DOT or not. If you're not yearning for one, hold out for a better deal. A DOT brand new will run around $400, as opposed to your 500 dollar Agile
The world doesn't revolve around you. If it does, beware. You're probably about to pass out drunk.
