It's either that or the epiphone dot, unless I can find another contender in the price range that comes lefty, and I really like the natural finish and lower price on this one.
I've heard agile makes pretty good guitars, but I haven't heard much about the semi-hollow models.
Any opinions/other options/suggestions are welcome=]

I'm not sure if they come in lefty, but the gretsch electromatic and the Ibanez artcore both have impressed me.
