Hi guys,

I'm looking for a cheap guitar.. as my car needs a new gas tank. *Grumble, moan*

I stumbled across www.rondomusic.net and found that their guitars are pretty nice looking, made from great wood, and they have nice Les Paul copies!

Would it be wise to get an SX Les Paul Goldtop or save up and get myself an Agile LP copy?

I really love the Goldtop copy.

I haven't played one but I can tell you from looking at threads like yours. The majority will tell you to get Agile. And not to get anything below a AL-2500 as the parts get much better from there up.

I'm really loving the Goldtop..

I've read some reviews that the Wilkinson pickups that they put in the higher-end Agiles sound like Seymour Duncan '59s. WOW.

Definitely going to get an Agile after all. Oh.. and it's the AL-2000s that they start to put the good pickups in.. not the 2500s.

I pm'd crunchmeister about his Agile 3000 not too long ago. Asked him a few questions, as he also owns a Gibson. He says he reaches for the Agile the majority of the time to play.

And, what's an Epiphone SG Custom? I've never heard of them. O.o

^ SGRocker.. it's the G-410 I believe.. It's the model with the three humbucking pickups.

A VERY NICE guitar if I must say so myself.

Thanks for the help.. and it's good to know that Agile is preferred over a Gibby! Wow.

I would definately go for the Agile. It's lots of guitar for now a lot of money. The SX might be ok for the money, but you're getting a much better guitar with Agile, particularly in the 2800+ series. At the very lowest, a 2500 is the lowest you should go, and if you can afford it, a 3000 or better is by far the best.

Indeed, my Agile is my go-to guitar. Despite the other guitars you can see in my sig, the Agile is the one I reach for most often. To me, it feels and played best. I love the tone of my Gibson (I got one of the 'good' ones) and I play it too. It just has a bite that the Agile doesn't. But overall, I tend to prefer playing my Agile over my other guitars. It really is a great guitar and would be at even double the price.
