What do you guys think about this guitars. quality, materials, sound, etc... i've heard good things about the brand especially for their low prices in comparison to similar more expensive guitars, but i'd like to know more about them, especially on the following ones: (i have listed them in order of preference so im more interested on the first ones but if you can tell me a little something about the others it's cool too)

I wouldn't go w/ any of the Floyd ones... I'm sure they're nto that bad, but most cheap floyds crap out badly after a few months.

Personally, I'd go with a PS-1000, as I like stoptails and i also like the PRS look.

I'd like to clear up a common misconception. Agathis, is not ****ty wood. It is, perhaps, the cheapest of woods, aside from things like plywood strat copies, but outside of that, Agathis is somewhat similar to alder in tonal characteristics.

TS: I didn'get a chance to look at your post because i was reading through ^his, but if you're looking for an agile, i suggest you try out one of the al-3100 mop's. I hate abalone, looks really cheap and flashy, and mother of pearl is just perfect on an lp, plus it is part of the 3k series after all. Outside of that, they have a new tele, tc-1000wad you should consider checkign out, or that natural HSH superstrat they've got.

Agathis doesn't sound bad at all...the problem is it's used for the uber-cheap guitars and they're going to sound bad no matter what.

My only grief with agathis is it's a real soft wood.

Better get an epiphone. Agile's aren't good guitars. I only wish people around here would start realizing that.

I'm with Jenny on this one - check out some Epi's first. I was thinking about an Agile a while back, but after reading about a lot of cases where the guitars came in bad condition I started looking at Epi's.

Now of course I have realised that a Fender Strat is the guitar for me, so I'm going for that.

not defending agile, but you know why some of the new epi's are lower???? because they moved em to china and instead they have agathis in the core instead of alder now, or so i've been told, and well, i'd take an agile over agathis anyday, i just don't like the tone
#18
Despite the popular presumption, agathis is actually a pretty good tonewood. Problem is, agathis is mainly used on starter guitars where the quality of the whole guitar in general is not acceptable.

You know what wouldn't suprise me, and is probaly true, is the 'mahogany' in the Agiles are most likely nato or some other philippine mahogany.

Actually, now they're using all mahogany. I played a Classic the other day - all mahogany. They've even had news articles on their site stating that the LP Studios and Standards are now upgraded with mahogany bodies and Grover tuners.

And, some may be made in China, but many are still made in Korea.


Also - to the guy who said that Agiles are Honduran mahogany, I can guarantee you they aren't. Not even all Gibsons are Honduran mahogany - saying that $200 guitars are made of it is nothing but a joke.

ive played these guitars in jersey at this store. they have some pretty cool stuff there, not nearly the amount of stuff they post on their page.

bottom line, dont buy these guitars... waste of money, they suck...

I have a 3100, and I like it better than Epiphone Customs. They're high quality and play great for the price!

Yeah i've got a 3100 and i when i went into guitar center yesterday i realized how much more i liked it then the Epi's i played.

^well, i'm just looking around and i'm curious about this guitar, at some point i would get a 7 string baritone or whatever, but i would use it for my own stuff, and experiment with it and play it my own way regardless of what bands i listen to. but if it helps you could check my profile if you want to find out. i just want to know if this guitar is good in quality, sound, woods, and its price.

I dont know dude but i sent in an order to Rondomusic today for the AL 2500 in flat black and ill tell ya how that goes when it gets here if u wanna wait, if u dont watever

Agile guitars are decent. i would buy one for a beginner, thats really it. im from jersey and thats where this store is. ive heard great things about them so i drove to the store to check them out. it was like playing a $100 Epi at best, and that was the higher end models...

its your money. but if you think about it, youre buying a guitar that youve never played, held in your hands, or heard with you own ears.

if they have a return policy, then you have nothing to lose

I've read an article somewhere that someone took apart an agile al3000 or something and made a report. He claimed the top layer was hundoran mahogany but what do I know. I don't know anything about wood. I'm not going to look for that report so if it ain't it ain't. I have an al3000 which I fitted it with emgs. I like it.

Some people just won't get over the fact that there are other LP copies better than the "official" Epi LP copy. Oh well.

Agiles will never be anywhere close to Epiphones in terms of quality, feel & tone.

Yes.

i love these threads.

all the epi guys bash the agiles, and all the agilers bash the epi-ers.
gee hmm, is there a chance that both make a pretty good intermediate level guitar?
and that the difference at that level are pretty negligible?

nah, lets just wait for crunch instead.

The Epi guys are just PO'd we can get as good of a guitar for 2/3 the cost of their Epi LP.
