Sound — 10
This guitar sounds awesome running through my Zoom GFX-5 into my Kustom Double Barrel 2X12 combo. I play everything from Classic Rock to New Metal and this guitar handles everything I throw at it. The pickups could be a little bit hotter for some higher gain stuff, but you don't need to change them if you don't want to. Before, when I played the same setup I have now with my Strat, it was wicked noisy, and now.. there isn't as much as a hum, the guitar is dead silent.
Overall Impression — 10
Like I previously stated, I play anything from Classic Rock to Newer Metal, and this guitar plays everything perfect, even with stock pickups! I've been playing about a year and a half and just love playing. Like I said before I play this guitar through a Zoom GFX-5 multi effect guitar processor into my Kustom Double Barrel 2X12 amp, and it sounds very good (Although I would like a new pedal). If this guitar was stolen or lost I would buy a new one without even looking at other guitars, it's that amazing. If you are thinking about buying this guitar, just go for it, if you don't you'll be kicking yourself later. I've read a lot of reviews about this guitar before I bought it and most all of them said that it kicks Epiphones butts and is competing with a Gibson Les Paul. There is nothing (In my opinion) that could make this guitar any better (as long as you don't need wicked high output pickups, and even then, the stock pickups are pretty darn good).
Reliability & Durability — 10
I'm not a gigging musician (yet) but when/if I ever do, I will not have any fear of putting this guitar as my lead guitar. It is absolutely amazing, the quality you get from Agile guitars, for such a low price. So I definitely think this guitar will withstand living playing for whatever type of music you play and however you play it. This guitar weighs about 11 pounds, that is a heavy, good quality guitar. I just love it.
Action, Fit & Finish — 9
I got this guitar, and all I had to do was tune it up, the intonation was perfect and just ready to play. The bridge pickup was a bit high, but it was an easy fix bring it down a little bit. The rest of the guitar was flawless. Even if I had bought the guitar at full price I wouldn't have returned it. The B-Stock "Problems" we're not even noticeable, I had to actually look for the mark on the binding Kurt (Owner of Rondo Music) was talking about.

This is an amazing guitar from Rondo Music. I got it as a B-Stock for a "1/8 inch chip in the binding" and a crack in the case that came with it. (I have pictures of the guitar in my profile). The guitar is solid mahogany with a maple cap. It also has a mahogany neck, with a ebony fingerboard and Grover tuners. Everything about this guitar is just amazing, and Rondo music is great with their customer support as well. So for $267 I got a practically new Agile AL-3100 from Rondo music, and I could not recommend this company and this guitar any more than I do now, they are amazing!
