Re: Agile, Insane sale ATM at Rondo
....and to add.....my swamp ash has the 490R and 498T alnico humbuckers. Now, I owned a Gibson Les Paul BFG with the Burstbucker 3. The Burstbucker is much hotter, but it isn't a potted pickup, so you have to be careful of feedback. Now, I'm not 100% certain, but I don't think Agile's are chambered or use weight relief in the bodies. Most all Gibson's are now. That's one of the biggest reasons my Swamp Ash guitar (and even the BFG) was lighter than the Agile's. Now, there are some area's where the Agile falls short. First, the wood in the Gibson is a higher grade. Better mahogony, etc. The angle of the headstock on the Gibson is much sharper. Many feel that increases sustain (the Agile's do quite well, trust me). Electronics (pots, etc) are a bit better on the Gibson (unless you upgrade to the higher end Agile's). The higher end Agile's feature actual maple caps vs. a veneer. Also, I've seen some Agile's where the wood didn't run parallel to the neck. In other words, it would be a two piece body but the seam of the pieces would be angled compared to the neck.
Anyway, as mentioned, for the price, they are one of the best LP copies out there.
