Not being mean, but how can it be a lawsuit guitar?, the lawsuit stuff was mainly late 70's early 80's,

the only recent lawsuit I heard of was towards a Chinese firm for making illegal copies of actual gibson stuff complete with the logo

agile is a decent guitar, better than the pieces of {censored} epiphones, the epiphones made in Japan are good though

re: 'lawsuit'... Agile changed the shape of the horn on the lower bout of their 'Single cutaway, double humbucker' guitars. If you look at Agile's current line, the lower horn is different.

At the time of the change (2005?) it was reported that Agile changed the guitar in response to a threatened lawsuit from Gibson. I don't remember seeing any documentation at the time, and haven't searched. But that's why the discussion of 'lawsuit' Agile's.

With Agile it was actually the very similar open book style headstock that was changed to a wave headstock.
The term "Lawsuit" is not used to imply or indicate that a Lawsuit was filed or threatened (after all, if threatened, it would usually be a private matter and we wouldn't know about it because it is not a matter of public record like when a lawsuit is actually filed) , just to identify with similarities(which are generally limited to headstock similarities) that are copyrighted or owned by the company that originally fabricated that design.
More or less, the term "Lawsuit" is jargon that some part of the guitar (usually the headstock) is similar to the original.
I believe that the reason that the headstock is usually the design in question, is that precedences were set in the 70's indicating that the copyright of design only extended to the headstock shape and did not pertain to the body or neck shape of a guitar. I.E. Gibson would have liked to protect every likeness of a Les Paul guitar, but was only awarded to protect the headstock shape likeness. Thats why we see numerous "clones" who's bodies are identical, but headstock shapes are not.

Looks like a cool guitar. Just a couple of questions. Do you know the weight of this guitar? Can you describe the neck profile - 50's (chunky), 60's (slim), other?


Thanks



hmmm, hard to say. I owned a les paul studio and it was basically the same weight. The neck wasn't that much different either, maybe a tad bit slimmer. It's quite a comfortable guitar to play, I'm just done with LP's for now.
