  • PRS SE Catanese Vs. Agile AL 3110

    I'm looking at adding another guitar to the arsenal for 2013, Happy New Year btw. I have currently, a CS Fender Tele, a Mascis Jazzmaster, Gibson SG and an LP. I want something a bit more shreddery like, for the heavies, but still acceptable for cleans. I use a fair amount of fuzz/distortion. Amps are an AC15c1, and a DRRI coming soon, in stereo.



    I want something with EMG's I think. So these two models appeal to me for slightly different reasons. The PRS is more of a modern take on the LP, 25" scale, love the plain ebony board, like the color better, I know the build quality on PRS models are very good. Traditional mahogany body with a maple cap. Only 1 vol/tone control.



    The Agile is a bit more like a traditional LP, same scale, 2 vol/2 tone controls, but also has the same EMG (81/85) in it.



    I can't try out either before buying. I might consider others, but prefer the LP style/feel. Thoughts on either?

    For me.......The PRS is a no brainer. Althought Agile's are good guitars, I think the PRS SE series are excellent guitars. And the re-sale in the PRS is better.

        Thanks, sort of what I'm leaning towards as well. I have an Agile Harm1 now too, forgot to mention that. It might get sold though to help fund this purchase, we'll see.

                    Ironic that they would call a Korean-made guitar "Cantonese"



                    I voted PRS...Agiles are great but PRS SE's are better...plus, (while it's usually the final consideration) I always think about the resale value when faced with choices in a guitar purchase.

                        Looks like the PRS then. Is there any one place that's better for ordering this model? Seems a bit harder to find, also it's at the higher end of the price spectrum for their SE line (over $800 without discounts). I see one on ebay for $600, but that's always a gamble. I'd rather spend a bit more from a good ship. Is Wilcutt guitar shop in Kentucky respected? nice pic they provide too:

                            I was looking at that PRS Cantonese just yesterday. Being a new model its harder to find and slightly inflated in price. You should be able to get in for $600ish, which I would pay. Let us know what you think when you eventually and if you get it.



                            Good luck,
