    thanks!

    seems like your priorities are exactly where they should be

    I actually like the Agile headstock a lot better than the Epis that I looked at... the Agile logo and fleur de lis is mother of pearl and is really nicely finished although it doesn't show well in the photos.

      Yeah, no Agile hype on this forum.

        Right. But you sure are throwing around that 30% capriciously. The simple fact is that you can't walk into a store and find an instrument of similar quality at the same price point. This isn't to say there aren't nice instruments at $200, but a $200 Agile regularly crushed $200 offerings from Squier, Ibanez, Oscar Schmidt, etc.

        The 2500 series is now bumped up in price, and I've not heard much yet about the 2000's, but the stories of Agile owners is generally one of people being amazed at getting the amount of guitar they got for the money they paid. They are amazed because they look around and see what else is comparable in that range and find it extremely wanting.

          so..maybe next time...

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

            All I'm saying is that ther's no magic formula to what Agiles are, they come from the same factory that several other brands come from, just at a cheaper price without the middleman, advertising , blah blah blah. Their $400 guitar is Schecters $600 guitar, it's not like they're made by magic little elves like Keebler products are!!!!

                      I don't think anyone thinks that they are made by magic elves.
                      But your argument is the same as mine. They make a good guitar for the money. As good a guitar as you'd pay more for elsewhere. You said it yourself. That is why they are popular.

                        Exactly. Bump the prices up 30-50% and no one's talking about them.

                        I was just annoyed at it being thrown out as the reason so carelessly. That IS the reason.

                          Well people would still talk about them. Like they do LTDs or Schecters of the same build quality.

                              the last 3 guitars i have bought have been Agiles. The one before that was an SX and I don't see any reason to go elsewhere. As soon as I sel the Agile PS-900(see sig) I will be buying another Agile AL2500.

                              Great guitar for the money
