agile 2000's are absolute starters from everything that i've read about them.
not bad for the money, but not like 2800+ series.

the Xav is praised around here, and i'm sure would be fine for the money.
probably a little better than a $169 squier strat affinity. But

the squier you chose is way nice, i mean look at the specs. red cedar body sounds teh sex, duncan designed are very nice for stock pups.
you've got the versatility of a humbucker in the neck spot and i like their maple necks.

it doesnt "look" starter to me. and the new vintage squiers are getting good reviews.

my friend has the agile, or a similar agile model ( les paul).

the agiles are basically any old paul, except made privately, and therefore are less expensive, as their name hasn't gotten out and about too much yet. it's a good guitar if you like fat necks, and the thick tone of humbuckers. some big time artists that use les pauls include jimmy page, kirk hammett, james hetfield, zakk wylde, slash, and many more. so, if you dig their tone and like the feel of les pauls, definitely go for the agile.

The Squier? it has duncans and the other two are huge knock-offs...

well the problem there is the three you have are 3 different guitars. one is a les paul type guitar the other a semi hollowbody telecaster type and a squier telecaster. now I would eliminate the squier because well great beginner instruments they never really have a good quality to them. that leaves the other two, out of those ive heard great things about the agile series and rondomusic in general. The other one sounds like someone trying to make a below average guitar sound pretty (generic descriptions ex premium parts etc.) while I cant make a judgement there as ive never tried any of that brand a quick google or search on this site for reviews of that particular guitar will answer your question.

On the topic of what youre looking for exactly, the les paul type (the agile) is suited more for rock genres and boasts great clean sounds as well. While the hollowbody (the xv-620) will get you a resonant tone suited more towards cleans jazz country etc.. again up to you to decide what you like to play there but i would go with the agile.

I say the Squier by far! I have played that model and it actually sounds and plays better than guitar costing 3 times as much!
#10
i had the agile al-3100 and the xaviere xv700. both were good with the agile being better sounding. the agile al's are about 10 lbs. and butt heavy, which is why i returned mine.

i would save up and get a al-3000 over the 2000. the squier i know nothing about but sounds nice from what i read.

Vintage Modified Squiers make me squeal. A little more and you can get the Squier Classic Vibe series.

The Red cedar is somewhat similar to mahogany; it's in the same family. Anyway Squiers have gotten much much better recently.

their is a huge diffrence between knock off pauls and gibson pauls! some of the epiphones are quite nice. Everything else is basically entry level junk.

facepalm:@Noob. MIJ Tokais, ESP/Edwards, Burnys, Grecos, etc. are basically as good as a MIA Gibson Les Paul standard for about half the price.

Why not just save up another $100 and go for a higher end Agile? Agile's are great guitars, but you're going to want to get at least a 2500 or 2800.

i've played his guitar. agile guitars are probably the best for the money, and are made of pretty decent parts. if you haven't heard of agile, don't shoot it down. thanks.
