    More of a counter-hype really...not many other ways to combat fifty years of Gibson hype

        +1 to this. it's a good guitar, not great, not excellent, but good. is it the same as a Gibson? maybe the ****************ty ones, but there's no substitute for a really nice Les Paul. the price is the major selling point.

          Say, when is someone going to do an honest side-by-side comparison between a new Gibson LP Standard and an Agile 2500 and then record the results so we call all hear for ourselves? I think that would go a long way toward eliminating some of these nonsensical threads.


          It's not nonsensical to those who are unfamiliar, eh?

            It's only nonsensical because there's been a new Agile vs. Gibson thread here every other day for about two years now.

            I'm sure if you use the search function you can find all the info you'd like.

              Very funny. I have two examples of each. Neither of the Agiles are even close to the Gibsons.

                So then the Agiles are playable and worht their price as opposed to the Gibsons...?

                  I just got a sunburst 2500 this week and have an 86 Les Paul Standard. The Agile feels real close neck wise, but the Les Paul has the better wood/electronics etc. The Agile is a great value for $200. I couldn't find a better guitar for $200(often, I found worse!) but it's not Gibson build quality. That's just silly to make that statement!

                          It's been done a few times. The guitars sound pretty much the same....or close enough that it's hard to say which is "better" and then the arguments start about how the variability between amps and recording processes make the experiment pointless. Arguments also go on about how the build quality and playability issues aren't addressed...blah blah blah...


                          Personally I would only buy a banged up and used Les Paul if anything at all because of the depreciation hit and the hassle of having to baby your guitar so much gigging. The sound and playabilty of Agiles is fine for me.

                            the only thing that confuses me about agile/rondo is the newer 2000's?
                            they are $40 less BUT you lose the grovers, the body is 3 piece and the maple top is B grade instead of A on the 2500, the rosewood is standard and not indian rosewood,
                            you lose the GHS brand name strings in place of MIK strings?

                            the grovers alone are worth the xtra $40!
                            so why would anyone want to save $40 and lose those better features

                              The first batch of AL2000 have the same hardware and tuners as the 2500....SHHHH and I always change the strings anyway.

                                I've been told the Grovers on the import guitars are import Grovers, not the ones on MF.
