My new guitar is coming

So for an early Christmas present my wife ordered me an Agile LA-3000M in the wine red color. This will be my first new piece of gear since 1994 or 95.

I'm excited, of course it's gonna look funny next to my Black Universe (yes, the one with the green on it, lol).

This will be my experimental guitar. The first thing I want to do is rip out the pickups and use EMG's, but then I realized maybe I should look around first and see what's out there. Thinking Seymour Duncans.

Anyway, it was a toss up between this guitar and the Washburn Dime V Pro. I'm glad she got me this one. Eventhough I would've been happy with either guitar.

Next up on the list, find a nice cheap preamp or Randall head (to go with my other one).

No sir, it's not top of the line. I think that's their LA-3500 model that has a few upgrades and no pick guard.

I'm excited, thank you. And thank you all, I'll get pics up as soon as I get it.

Re: My new guitar is coming

okay, this is my first time taking pictures of any of my gear, so please forgive me and if there's a pic of something you'd like to see on the guitar let me know and I'll do my best to get a good pic of it. But anyway, this is my new Agile 3000M, my first 6 string electric




I did my best to capture the abalone inlays. Overall I'm pleased with this guitar. I was worried about the weight, because people have always said that Les Pauls were heavy, this one is stated to be 10lbs. To me it feels lighter than my Universe, so who knows.

I didn't think I'd be able to hear if I needed to replace the pickups, and man oh man was I wrong. Even after tweeking my pre-amp I couldn't get passed the hollowness of the pups, but that's okay. For a 369 dollar guitar with the quality that went into it, I can live with it

The only I can't wait to do is rip out the pickups, rewire the volume and tone locations, and either take off the pick guard or replace it with a black one.

I'm glad I chose the wine red color, I did my best to take a picture with the sun shining on the flame (I think it's called a flame, lol) to bring out the color and pattern, but I think the window thingy's got in the way.

I can tell ya one thing, it sure is strange playing a 6 string along with a stop tailpiece when compared to a floating tremelo. That's all I got.

Re: My new guitar is coming

Maybe you should've bought the 3500 instead (the one with SD pickups). It looks very nice though. That top looks very nice, nicer than some Gibson LPs in fact.
