After many posts and lurking, I still haven't gotten so sure about which one to buy.
I was thinking of the Agile AL 3000MAP. Are there any other guitars in the $400 price range that would compare to the Agile? I want a LP tone and feel, and I don't like metal guitars at all.

The only problem with the agile is that it has to be bought on-line.

No "metal" guitars? I can't help you unless you want a jazz feel.

i have an agile Al 3000 CSB slim neck and it is a great guitar (especially for the price range.) I have had mine for about a year and a half now, (going on four years of guitar playing too,) and i havent had any problems with it. It's not as good as the high end gibsons, but it is much better than the epiphones in playability, sound quality, and durability namely- i have an epi les paul classic ($500 at the time.)

overall, i would suggest going for the agile, most people i know who have played them have few bad things to say about them (if any.) I would say that you would have a hard time finding a guitar better than that for your price range.

but seeing as you did ask for other guitars- try an epi les paul- the classics are much better (in my opinion) than the standards. the customs are pretty decent too. Im not knocking epiphone, i do think that they are good at what they do, but i still think the agile is better overall (price, tone, etc.) But you could try an epi, you might like it- i do like my epiphone, my agile just suits me more.

On a side note: I had my doubts about ordering online but rondomusic is great.

Kurt, the guy in charge of rondomusic, is great as well. He genuinly cares if you are satisfied. i also ordered a bass and the tone knobs were a different color than i expected and wanted. i emailed him, he emailed back personally, and within 3 days i had new tone knobs in the mail-free of charge, no shipping either.


good luck, sorry for the rambling post

I have experience with Rondomusic.net and Agile itself, and I would say that hands-down there is no better guitar for the money than an agile, you will definetly not be dissapointed.

And an Agile is definetly not a metal guitar, unless you get one with EMG's already in it.

Great, now I just have to convince my parents to let me buy something $400 online

Also, i was kind of looking at a PRS SE custom, any opinions?

if you're worried about credit card theft/fraud online just go out and get one of those visa gift card thingies for $400. they work anywhere credit cards do, including online. you can buy them at supermarkets, drug stores, cvs, **** like that.

or you can go to a guitar shop and have them special order it for you, might be a bit extra but most would do it for you

The Michael Kelly Patriot Vintage would be a better choice.

Excellent build quality, comfortable neck, extremely resonant, very warm tone, good pickups and electronics, coil splits, and uber sexy looking.

Make the right choice.
