Why not? If your really a metal player then you've probably already got a "metal" amp. Toss in a thick sounding LP and your good to go. Even with stock pups!

not ALL LPs are thick-sounding

My favorite band. I'm actually listening to Al The Killer right now. I can attest that it will handle their songs fine.

What LP isn't thick sounding?

Thats one of the big draws to LP's if not the biggest.
#49
Sucks that I missed them on warped this year. I was busy working things out with my band and couldn't get out to their shows. But yeah my Agile hands all their stuff really well. If thats one thing these pups do well its Co&Ca songs.

EDIT:

My Hondo LP isn't thick sounding. Acoustically its very vibrant for one thing. As for its tone when plugged in its well... Hard to explain but not thick. Still sounds decent though but I will see once I get new pups in it and fix it up some more. Alot of LP's are "thick" sounding though. The body woods and how they are built attribute to that. Its just the nature of the beast.

what do you dislike about them?


I had 'em for 2 years and they're worn out already. I sold the gg4 but I still have the al3000. It needs fret works and the neck's slightly twisted. It's still playable but the action has to be raised to stop buzzings.
#52
Well the Agiles are made with quality woods

So they will reflect the classic thick LP tone if thats what your after
#53
Thinking about an Agile lp style. What shoudl I go for the 2000 2500 or the 3000.

I know that the 3000 is the better one, but I will probally be replacing pick-ups anyways.

So I guess my question is if I am gonna change the pickups is it ok to cheap out and go for the 2000/2500?

I don't own an agile. i just have a very strong interest in them. I'll probably get one when christmas time rolls around. If I were you, I would ask Kurt that question.

Oh forgot to ask, I know the agile can handle the genres I wanted now, but how about the amp (Roland 20x)
#62
The roland 20 is excellent

IMO the cubes are the very best SS amps you can get, they are amazing.

^ I never really appreciated how beautiful my guitar was till the other guitarist in my band was playing it. But then again it might have been her and not the guitar... Ah well. I started playing it again recently and I am starting to fall in love with it again. I won't sell it after all.

what do you guys think about the 2500- 12 string

I haven't personally played it and I don't necessarily like the idea of a 12 string LP type guitar. It just doesn't seem right to me. In my mind 12 strings are supposed to be jangly and have this type of treble depth that I don't think an LP type can deliver. But as I said I haven't played one so I have no clue as to whether or not that would be true for this guitar.

Whats a good $200-400 Agile, and would I be better with a LP? My genres are Modern, Punk, and Classic rock, along with blues and alternitive. By the way, if not one of these, I'll get a Fat Strat or an Epi LP, so would that be better? Thanks.

Well you have some options here my friend. If you want to go the LP route your best bet with your price range would be the AL-3000MAP. If you do want to go the strat route you have a choice between three. If you want an ash strat for a more classic range of tones you can go with the ST-1600. The last two you can go with are the ST-1000 or the ST-802.

I just got my agile PS-970 2 days ago. So far it seems pretty good. I broke a string so i cant really play it till i buy a new set. . . ARRGG floyds!!! Its only my second guitar and i have never realy used an FR so it will take a while. It sounds really good stock with my Zoom G7. Also i was thinking about putting in black hardware and all but i will wait for a while because the gold looks a lot better than i thought it would. Overall the finish looks really good. Will have a review and pics up l8er.

Well, the 3000 has a lot up upgrades from the lower end models, it has a mahogany neck and ebony fretboard, a better bridge and overall better construction, while the main difference between the 2000 and 2500 is the fretboard, 2500 has a higher quality rosewood.

I recieved my AL-3100 yesterday via airmail. The switch tip had broken off, even in the recommended case I got with it. I plugged in and played... None of the controls did what they should. I checked inside the control cavity and it was a total mess. Other than the electronics and the broken switch, I'm pretty happy (playability, action, finish). For someone who doesn't know electronics, this would be a disaster. Luckily, I have the parts, equipment and knowledge to fix it.

These go to eleven...

Why bother. I think their woods aren't completely cured before cutting. It plays all right and I'm still jammin' on it (I got emg 81-60 on it) but the action's too high to rapid play. Don't ask me about the sx gg4. The frets are really ****ed and the fingerboard isn't flat.

I've had my AL-3000 for almost 3 years now. To this day, it's still the guitar I play more than all my other guitars combined. There's just something about its sound and feel that makes me want to play it more than my other guitars.

I don't know about the stock pickups on current the AL-3000, but when I got mine, they had Wilkinson pickups, and I thought the pickups were just fine. I played the guitar for about 6 months before switching to EMGs. And I had the EMGs here the whole time I had the guitar. I had originally planned on the Agile being my 'all-purpose' guitar - the one I would keep passive pickups on. I didn't expect to use it a whole lot. Turns out it quickly became my main guitar, and still is to this day. I installed EMGs because it was the only way I could get MY sound of of it.

This is the only 'decent' picture I have of it in its current form. That's my band's rhythm guitarist holding it there. He had used it for band practice that day, so the guitar was really streaked and covered in sweat at the time. lol
