hey guys, i found this cheap guitar company today, called agile.

they had 300-400$ guitars with all the bells and whistles of a 700-800$ guitar!!!

was just wondering if anyone had tried any of these and what you thought of them?
#2
i think, from a general impression of what people on here think, agiles are actually quite good. i've never played one myself though.
I like analogue Solid State amps that make no effort to be "tube-like", and I'm proud of it...

...A little too proud, to be honest.
#3
can anyone else share some info, i saw a really nice guitar for 350$ on the site with a mahogany body and set neck!! and passive EMGS

agile makes really good quality les paul copies.

agiles make some of the best guitars around (best bang for buck). I would take one over an epiphone any day. AWESOME customer service. I recomend one for sure. One thing though, resale isn't so great on them, but if you like them as much as everyone else you wont want to sell it.

what pricerange of guitars does the one compete with??
#12
Agiles used to be very popular here (one of those bandwagons like the current peavy classic one), i've read many times here they seem to be better then epiphone.

I have heard conflicting reports- and the fly in the ointment is these conflicting reports are from people I trust. So I really have no idea, to be honest.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

The low end ones are pretty rubbish, but good for a quick mess about.
However the more expensive ones are high quality and I would take one of the AL-3000 over any Epiphone (minus the Elist ones obviously).
#16
i saw this sweet 7 string with a transparent green top, mahogony body i think, emg pickups, licensed floyd rose all for like 400 dollars. it certainly would be worth checking out or having a music shop order one so you could check it out. then if you don't like it.. the music shop'll sell it.

i cannot comment on the agiles, but for these types of companies, be sure to also check out dillion, michael kelly, and alex chase.

EDIT: and malden.

they all have a reputation for making very high quality imported guitars.

Up until several weeks ago I never even heard of Agile or SX guitars. I saw they got really good reviews here but wanted to try them out. The only place I knew that sold them is local but no longer has a showroom where you could get your hands on one. I was lucky when the guitar show came to Boston a few dealers had some I could try and I was really happy with the brands. Both sounded nice were well constructed and were priced reasonable. When the show was here I didn't have any dough to buy a guitar and I was looking for several parts I needed to complete a few projects I have going. I wish I picked up one now. I have been keeping an eye out on Ebay for a used Agile Explorer type.

I would have no problem recommending an Agile to anyone.
