Short version: Terrific value.

Long version: Hardware feels awesome. Pots are smooth and noiseless, tuners feel fantastic, selector switch feels plenty robust, it came set up and action is a tad low but the intonation is solid. Strung out of the box with D'Addario 10-46s. Pickups sound excellent. I was playing in Garageband and the quality of the tone shone through on every setting, even the lousy-sounding ones. The output is plenty powerful and the sustain is monstrous.

Now, I've only played guitar for about two months, but I immediately felt the difference between the Agile and my Squier. The Agile just feeeeeeels so composed and solid and everything is well placed under my fingers. It's a very well-engineered guitar.

There are a few places where you can tell it really is only $350, i.e. I found some gold paint splashed on one of the tone knobs, imperfections on the headstock and a random blemish on the fretboard, but all in all it looks just as good as it feels.

And it's heavy Heavier than my bass, I'm pretty sure.

Now I gotta learn to play it!

Hot. I need to get an Agile one of these days. My Gibson only weights 10.5 pounds, I’m hoping Agile can do better…12 pounds, maybe?

Congrats. Attractive guitar and looks well put together. Not to mention the great price.

Haven't played for an extended period of time yet, but haven't had trouble with my bass.

Could be all the cello playing; works that left shoulder muscle reeeeeeal good.

yeah, that's my only real beef about agile guitars.

I wondered why the frisbee was getting bigger, then it hit me.

Congrats! I had a 2000 goldtop with P-90's that I kinda regret giving away. Yeah, those suckers are definitely heavy

Nice
I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.

It’s fine if I use wide leather straps. But I can’t use a heavy instrument with nylon straps. They just fold over and dig in and that hurts after about five minutes.

So get a load of this. I had a 60hz buzz that seemed abnormal to me (my strat was dead silent in position 2 and 4, but the Agile had a hum? WTF?) so I took a look in the cavity. It seems the red and white wires are supposed to be chummy but they're not.
