I suggest getting the 2800 if you can. Its a pretty good guitar.

anyone know what that colour is called? I've always wanted a couple of paintjobs done and that was one of the concepts I came up with...


Silverburst.

xAbre120, I suggest going for a higher model, since the AL-2000 is more of a starter guitar (a 'high-end' starter guitar :P). The 2800 model or higher would be your best bet.

im preaty much a beginner myself. but do you guys think I should get the one thats $20 more? Im still not sure what P90 pickups are.

Only agile guitars worth getting is the AL3000. Anything below that is pure shit.

And even the AL3000 isn't worth it IMO.

If you want good les paul copies you'll have to look towards either epiphone, or better yet, tokai l0ve rock.

#12
Then get the agile AL3000... You won't regret it. The AL2000 isn't a newbie guitar, its just firewood.

Hmm. How are they not worth it? AL3000s are better than most Epiphones, and some Gibsons. Do you own one? Only problem I've had with my Agile is that the nut isn't very smooth, so some buzzing persists.
I may need to lower a gauge, or shave it ( )

mehh...better than most epis and gibson?

i dont know, i was interested, and i own two agiles, a 2800 and a tele copy, and they are great guitars for the price, but i wouldnt go as far to say its better than most epiphones and gibsons, there are epiphone elitists, and even some regular epiphones are great. The biggest issue with agiles is that i cant play one before i buy it. I ended up swapping out pickups on both my agiles, and did a lot of modding on them. THey are great to mess around with but id go for an epiphone and especially a gibson before an agile for sure, even more so if i got to hold it and play it.

^depends on what model, and depends if you are ordering or going to a store to buy one, and depends on what model agile youre talking about.

but in all honesty, if its one of your first guitars, and youre on a budget, just get something cheap. Sooner or later youll begin to want better things, and even with a regular epiphone, youll ditch it anyway, sooo if its in the budget and you dig the looks, then go for it. As long as you play it its all that matters. And ya, Agile's are great guitars for the price, im just saying they arnt fantastically better than epiphones or gibsons.

I meant most low end Gibsons. I've also heard some nasty stories from people who've had Gibsons (even higher end ones) with poor workmanship. Personally I prefer them over any Epi though.

I have an Agile AL-3000. Triple body and headstock binding, bound neck, ebony board, Abolone inlays, MOP logo and MOP fluer-di-lis. Agile's are know for their excellent build quality and attention to detail. Even the stock pickups are great. Here are a few pics of mine.

Damn man, I haven't seen the black finish on the AL3000. It's a beauty! I have the cherry sunburst finish myself. It looks awesome too.

Thanks! She is mint, too. Yes, cherry sunburst is great, too. My next will be the Root Beer finish.

Ahah!! You reveal your true colours at last!!!!

Hehe jk...

But you did just more or less admit that you based the supposition that agiles are better than some low-end gibsons on other peoples stories

If you want to think that go ahead. My uncle owns a few Gibsons too, and I prefer my Agile to some of them.

I picked up this same Agile for $60 from some jerk who just had to have a jenuwhine gibson LP. You know ... if you've got the chops to play rollin' and tumblin' licks the way they were intended to be played, I don't give a shit if you do it on a broom stick with your short and curlys for strings. All I can say is, "The high end Agile line will stand up against any fine instrument for any legitimate performance musician who needs one on a regular gig basis." END OF QUOTE ! It's comparable to what Takamine's done with acoustics against Martins since the early 60's. Emulate the best of breed, use the best materials, ensure fine craftmanship and quality control, throw out the rotten apples, trick out the ones you love, play em forever..............

hmmm some people dont like silverburst..... im thinking on just getting a sunburst agile anyways. Or maybe just black
