Anybody have any experience with these guitars? I have heard they are of better quality than the Epi's. Made in Korea and with the newer model Epiphones being made in China, who knows.. laugh.gif

Have a chance to pick one up pretty cheap. 150.00/ They sell new for a tic over 200.00 blink.gif

Here's the spec's:

Got to hand it to Gibson. Much fuller and thick sound, the Agile sounded kind of thin. I think that can be blamed on the pickups alone so with a better set it's a real winner for sure. And the price $150 sounds like a bargain.

the PRS copy looks nice http://www.rondomusic.com/ps924.html biggrin.gif

Your right Micke. The guy who is selling this one changed the pickups to a set of Dimarzio SD's. Still on the fence though. Trying to get him to trade for an old Korean made Jackson I have.

so 150 bucks for the guitar including Dimarzio pickups? When I got my one superdistortion here in Sweden that alone costed about $100 - for one SD pu.

You better grab that baby before it's too late then laugh.gif It's so cheap could it be hoax??? I don't know the site myself.

laugh.gif I know. This is actually a local selling the guitar on Craigslist. He's about 2 hours east of me so can't zip over and play it. If it is what he says it is, then I'm on it! smile.gif Waiting for an email with a few more pics atm.

Well in that youtube clip Gibson sounds better (more rich sound , full and defined)...That Agile sounded well - cheaper! But for that money it may be a best bet in that class, especially if you change pickups! smile.gif) I mean "Guitar assemble kits" cost that much smile.gif

I wonder if in the context of a band mix anyone would be able to tell a difference at all.

Haha, I love his reply to the question, "How's the upper fret access on LPs?", "Nothing is impossible.". laugh.gif

Congrats, man, I've heard good things about these as well. smile.gif I know it's probably just a stupid status thing, but I'd still prefer a Gibson Les Paul, even considering that they are overpriced.

Well, the guy who was selling this guitar backed out. sad.gif Said he just couldn't part with it which indicates to me that they are of quality. smile.gif That said, I bought a different one. This is also a 2000 model but in black flamed finish. Has a Gibson 498T installed in the bridge. Being delivered today so pics to follow this evening. smile.gif 200.00 US

OMG!!! I can't believe the quality of this guitar for what I paid for it! Please check these thing out if you are in the market for an LP (copy), had to add that.

Made in Korea
All maple body, not alder/maple
set neck, and the neck joint is perfect
grover tuners
body and neck binding (the 3000 models have body,neck and headstock triple binding)
flamed maple top (1/16 on this model, the 3000's have 3/4 top)
Rosewood fretboard
graphite nut (3000's have bone nut)

FOR 200.00US NEW!!!!


























You can see my camera in the headstock shot if you click on it for a larger view. The finish is amazing and sounds awesome too! Does need a string change so once I have a new set on it, I'll do a complete review for the Wiki.
