  • Agile....who has experince with these?

    Man I have to say that I've been eyeing up the Agile Baritone Les Paul and am seriously thinking about pulling the trigger on one of these. Who has first hand experience with these or just the regular 6-stringers in general? I realize they are on the cheap but if they play half-way decent I'll just swap out the electronics and maybe install some locking tuners.

      They are solid. The electronics are decent but 9/10 people end up at least swapping the pups.

      They usually benefit from a good setup.

        Haha...sorry man, usually don't venture over there too much. Had to call on my metal brotha's to find out the scoop on one of these downtuners.

            My old man just picked up a gold top Epi today with P90's.....he's on his way right now so I can set it up. Have to see what this thing is all about. Not exactly my cup o tea but I'm sure it will be cool non-the-less.

                I love my PS-900. My bro has a couple of AL-3100's. They're great guitars. They definitely requite a pup swap though. The bridge is ok though and it comes with 18-1 Grovers.

                  Cool man....I appreciate it, I'm just looking for good playability. I can **************** with the hardware and electronics after the fact.

                    Im gonna get an EPI LP and rip out the PUPS immedietely. Im putting in Slash alnico SD humbuckers when i get it. id rather get one from a forumite but if no one PM's me, I'll have to go elsewhere.

                      The Epi's are pretty good players. I've had a few. The Alnico's ought to sound pretty damn good in one. I'll post a pic of this gold top here in a few when he gets here.

                        Great guitars - very solid - pickup change that everyone says here is a good idea.

                        You won't regret - save a little more by looking on craigs list -

                          Don't ever drop it.

                          My friend and I had both agile V's when they first came out. We had a guitar tree that we stored our guitars on at his house (practice space) and one day his damn cat decided to try and climb it. The cat knocked over that tree and the agile V had a wing break right off. I went from having a look-a-like King V to a look-a-like Rhoads. It was the only guitar that had been damaged luckily.

                              Basically back in the day they were simlar in quality to a $500 Epiphone Les Paul but they cost only $200 to $250. Most HC forum members swap out the pickups anyway so they were a great way to get the sound you wanted cheap. The only two negatives I can tell you is that the finish is kind of a thick and they're heavy because they aren't chambered. Some people might actually like the non-chambered feature as more "authentic".
                              The really cheap Agiles use a figured maple veneer over a solid mahogany bodywith a solid maple neck instead of a chambered mahogany body, thick maple cap and mahogany neck. I actually think the Agiles sound better (brighter and less muddy) from this. YMMV.
