Agile came on the scene as a guitar manufacturer in the mid-2000s, offering mostly copies of classic guitar designs at too-good-to-be-true prices. Eventually enough players took the leap and tried them out, and it turns out they were successful in many ways.
This AL-3000 is essentially a Gibson Les Paul Goldtop copy, and a darn good one at that. The construction features a 1-piece mahogany body with a mahogany cap and a set-neck. The top is triple-bound. The neck features a handsome inlay on the headstock and trapezoid abalone inlays for fret-markers. Couple that with nickel hardware (tune-o-matic style bridge) and real grover tuners, and you’ve got a good-looking instrument on your hands.
Electrically the wiring is standard Gibson spec; two volume, two tone, and a 3-way switch. This model originally came with P90 style pickups, but the previous owner has swapped in some very cool gold-foil copies that get a seriously jangly tone out of this excellent instrument. The action is set up low and fast, and the neck feels chunky and correct like a Gibson.
There is a little buckle-rash on the back and a few nics in the finish – all to be expected from a well-played axe. All in all, a seriously cool, seriously good player.
