I'm planning on a n Agile LP for christmas. There are a few options that I want to see about before I buy...

1. For an LP like this, would the abnormally thin neck make it worse playing tone wise or sustain wise, or have any other draw backs to speak of?

2.For an LP like this, what would the difference be besides the fact it lacks metal frets.

3. Which color is nicer you think?

4. What are the differences between these?

5. Is there any difference besides look in double cut/single cut LP's...any draw backs of either?

6. P90's or HB's?

for the difference question, read the bold stuff in the description

as for hum vs. p-90, do you like hum or single tone better? a p-90 is more like a single coil. also what music do you play?

and i like the orange one the best

Nope, the neck profile should have very little affect on sustain overall, so go with the one you will like cause playability is very important.
The thinner profile necks aren't bad or worse it just depends on what your comfortable playing, do you have small or big hands and thinner necks might be a little faster.

I suppose that's about it, but unless your really comfortable or familiar with a fretless I wouldn't get one.


Just go with the one you like most, it is your guitar after all.

Read the specs at the side, the Agile AL-3000 CSB looks to be good cause of the solid mahogany body instead of multi ply, but that's all I can say haven't looked into the details of the guitar.
5. Is there any difference besides look in double cut/single cut LP's...any draw backs of either?

Nope just looks, both are very nice and the double cut might be easier to play but go with whichever one you like more.

6. P90's or HB's?

Again it's all preference, P-90's are like lower and heavier single coils with a warm feel. While humbuckers are quite heavy and thick, I can't really describe it though, if at all possible try them or try to hear some and see which one you like more.

I'd say go with an AL-3000 or 3000M in CSB out of the two colors. Blue Agiles tend to look quite a bit different than the pictures (the blue is probably lighter).

I've heard that most all ALs actually use maple for a cap, but the 3000 MAP should have a 2 piece 3/4" plain maple cap with a veneer over it. The regular 3000 is basically the same except it probably has a thinner cap or is solid mahogany and it doesn't have the Gotoh bridge/tailpiece thats on the 3000M.

I'd say go with the AL-3000M, and stay away from the fretless unless you really need it.

i think the neck is flat, but dunno bout the "thinness".

u might have hard time playing in right intonation. (at least i think i would...)

the sunburst.

the one with the cap probably got more maple on top of the mahogany body, making it brighter i guess?

5. Is there any difference besides look in double cut/single cut LP's...any draw backs of either?
i don't thinkso, but i hate double cut LPs. i like the single cut traditional look better.

6. P90's or HB's?
u got a strat, so i'd say Humbuckers. but its your choice. i think there would be more freedom with playing lots of genres with humbuckers. P90s are awesome, but if ur into classic rock + blues, i say humbuckers. if ur into Jazz, u might love the P90s.

Thanks guys. I think I'll go HB's, with frets, single cut, CSB. Regular neck.

I don't get what maple caps or whatever means, can someone explain the difference of the MAP and regular?
