I spent about 400 dollars on this thing. I had probably high expectations, because I've heard a lot of good things about Agile. When I looked at the Rondo Music website I was surprised at how cool the guitars looked. So, I took a risk.. Ok, I'll start from the top down. The headstock is actually really nice. I was worried that it was going to look cheesy, but no it looks cool. The mop inlay is very nice, and I dig the shape of the headstock a lot. The binding on it is better than I thought a 400 dollar guitar could be. The tuners are great high quality and the nut is perfectly good. The fretboard I had an issue with. There was tons of black shit on the fretboard, and it was all over my fingers after test playing it. I immediately took off all the strings to wipe the fretboard down. After I did that though the neck looks very nice. It's the mot porous ebony neck I've seen, still smooth and solid, but definitely not high quality ebony. The mop trapezoid inlays are very nice. However, they were not put in perfectly, you see where they had to use some filler to even out the edges. Overall not bad. The neck is slim, and not a good slim. It's slightly unstable. So, if I move the guitar slightly while playing the string tuning goes sharp or flat. This is obviously very annoying. However, it's more of a shift in pitch, so it's not really going out of tune. Otherwise, the frets are masterfully done the binding is SURPRISINGLY neat. A playable neck, surprisingly decent! The body, well I don't have much to say. It's nice... The heal is my favorite part of the look. They weren't trying to be like a Les Paul. It's much lower, and has a sexy curve. The hardware is ok, but the plastics is "meh". Ya, the plastics are shit color wise. I'm going to nitpick on one thing though. The top carve sucks. It can be a flattop and it wouldn't make a difference IMO. It's there but I guess I'm accustomed to a nicer top carve. Just a little bit of nitpicking... Other than that it has a nice two piece back and one piece mahogany neck. Very nice grain to it. I'm impressed with that.. Other than that as far as looks go it has the worst finish on a guitar I ever owned. The gold top looks puke green as I turn it and look from different angles. It's awful.. I mean, wtf am I supposed to do about that though... The tone is ok. Nothing special, but not bad at all.. It's definitely playable. I'm going to turn it up tonight, and really play it... It might be a good guitar to have around, and I won't have to worry if it explodes on accident. Well the eventual thing to mention is how does it compare to a LP. It doesn't, the Les Paul is worlds away in quality, WORLDS! This is, for me, an affirmation of why Gibson is such a legendary guitar manufacturer. But, I didn't buy this because I can't afford a Gibson. I wanted to check out a well talked about guitar manufacturer... Anyway, it's an ok guitar so far..
