Have any of you actually played it?

I've never seen one in a music store around here, but I hear praise for them all of the time. I'm wondering, with some new pickups, would that guitar be a monster? Or just average?

I play metal and rock mainly, but I like to dabble with all sorts of things.

i have a non slim tapper neck Al3000 in rootbeer. For the price i must say that its great. I have only been playing for just over one year and i dont have that much experience with many other guitars though so i can't compare it to a Gibson or an Epiphone. I have had it for about 4 months so far, It stays in tune well enough, but the G and high e strings seem to go out of tune a lot, there is some noise when switching from treble to rythem also, both of these problems are very minor things that i have noticed.

That 17+ year player review on UG is mine dated from November 2004. And I still stand by it 100%. I've had my Agile for almost 2 years now. Despite having accquired new guitars since (LTD EX-351, Gibson Les Paul), it's still my favorite guitar.

I've had no tuning issues, but I did install locking tuners shortly after getting the guitar. I do that to all my guitars to prevent tuning issues. I don't remember actually having any tuning problems with the stock tuners though. I replaced the pickups, but kept the old wiring and toggle switch, and haven't had a problem with those either.

Threadstarter, there's a reason you've never seen them in stores. They aren't in stores, you can only get them online (well 1 exception, you can go to the distributors place in New Jersey to play them).
Current Rig:

Mine has been a great playing guitar. I changed the pickups out, the stock pups were a bit muddy, and it sounds great. One down side is I think I'm going to need to change out all the pots and jack (already changed switch). I don't think they used the best electronics, but that stuff is cheap and easy to change when you do pickups.
It's a fine line between clever and stupid.

I might get it, it's an amazing guitar (Played it at a guitar shop during a jam session) It was much better than an LP special, but not as good as a 60's custom
