    Agiles are so great because they're prices are so low. Also the guitars aren't bad either and customer service is great.

      Because you get Gibson quality for a fraction of the cost.

        They aren't, they're average Korean built guitars at a lower price than a comparable Schecter, Ibanez , or ESP. They sell direct,so there's no middleman jacking up the price an additional 30%.

          I'd say that they are a little better than average.
          The 2000 and 2500 series are built very well and the 3000-3500 series have cool goodies as well. Many have said that the 2500 is as nice ore nicer than Epi's LP standard (I agree with this) and they go for about 1/2 the price. The value follows the line all the way up to the 3500 with Duncans. THough it is firmly planted in the mid-priced market you won't find a better spec/dollar out there.

              Great customer service (unbelievable actually) and ALOT of guitar for the money...

              I just got my first last week. Here's some shots and I will post a full review next week...

                Thats a pretty guitar. Good choice I'm fond of the rootbeer. Does it play well? How are the pups?

                  Add 30% to the price of any Agile and they're average. Also, lower and midline Epi's are not made in Korea. I'm refering to strictly Korean made instruments. I'm not ripping on Agiles, but there's no mystique to them, they're just OEM'd Korean guitars subcontracted just like Nelsonics, Epis, ESPs, Schecters, MIK Fenders, blah, blah, the list goes on and on.

                    Bingo.

                    I got a quasi-SG knockoff with P-90's, an unavailable option as an Epi, for $99 on closeout.

                    Well worth twice that much, plus you simply could not get anything new and Gibby-approved (you'd have to get a Gibson SG Classic or Townshend SG for big bucks) for under seven or eight times as much, and that's being generous.

                    The real beauty is I can gig the dang thing straoight outta the box.

                    And I have.

                    BK

                    PS-- I also own 2 Gibbies

                        Whatever dude. My point was/is you won't find a better guitar for the money.

                          I am a beginner so somewhat hestitant to comment but it sounds comparable to other guitars I played prior to buying which included Gibsons and Epi Elitists. The rootbeer has the upgraded pickups (same as 3500 series) and am not sure how they compare to the other Agile pups, but I am very satisfied with the sound quality and dynamics of these;I spend the majority of practice time running it through the clean channel of a Roland Cube 30 and it is amazing.

                          I took it into the shop I go to/take lessons at (owned by Kirk Sand of Sand Guitars-- actual luthiers) expecting the action to need some slight adjustment but it was perfect out of the box. They were also amazed at the quality vs. price point. John Heusensstamm, my instructor, liked it so much I could hardly get it back after he started playing.

                          I am working on a full review (from a beginner perspective) and should have it complete by tomorrow...

                          I couldn't be happier with this quitar!

                              i finally saw a place in Seoul that sells the sx and agile locally. didnt have alot of time to talk to them cause i had to meet this...

                              so..maybe next time...

                              i love that rootbeer, and the headstock looks surprisingly noncheesy. cheers
