Where are all the copyright warriors
Well, even if you buy that guitar new and have it PLEK'd immediately to make it playable, you still spend so little money on that guitar, it's practically a steal. It's getting harder and harder for other manufacturers to justify their prices...
.............yeah funny that?"!
Other than the look of roasted maple as a fretboard i really liked it.
i haven't had an issue with either agile i own. I love them and i wouldn't heistate to buy another.
Blissfully ignoring it because we all love Rondo so much. Is that really what you think?
These things are terrible looking to me - the "roasting" looks like an uneven stain job that needed a second coat. I actually think that Grote looks much nicer in comparison, visually at least.
Also, Ibanez is one of the worst offenders when it comes to infringement, so it's a little different than a company with a new and proprietary design, as far as inspiring negativity.
The point was never to shit all over everyone's thread who likes a cheaply made copy, or can't afford the real thing. The discussion came up in light of the justifications that were being made. And that hadn't happened here until you brought it up.
I own an Agile and a Brice, but, I've played a half a dozen Agiles as well. As for quality, everything I've seen has been "par" for a mid-priced guitar. I don't think anyone is blown away by the quality of an Agile outside of the context of the price. I have never personally come across a "dud," either. I think the same could be said for LTD, Ibanez, Schecter, etc.
Good point. This is obviously a design that draws heavily from Ibanez...or Washburn...or, hmm, who exactly?
I mean, honestly, Agile copies other brands. No one in their right mind would argue that it never does. Their Les Pauls are obviously Gibson Les Paul copies. If you look closely, it's a pretty close copy of a 1990's Ibanez RG hardtail. The neck joint and heel are the dead giveaways. But everything else is actually pretty generic. The colour combo associated with Ibanez's 90's models was actually also used at the same time by Washburn, Carvin, and even Jackson/Charvel, I believe. Same with the body shape.
Also, could you point me to a currently produced model of guitar that looks like this one?
So, although I agree with your point, this might not be the best example to fight over.
A six string non baritone with the bridge pickup in the right spot is a step in the right direction to me.
prob still getting butthurt over people copying strandberg's shape and making it in china. body shapes aren't generally trademarked/protected anyways.
I usually like roasted maple fretboards but something about it against the green looks off to me. Still looks like a steal though!
the green one is odd. Its like when you take a picture in photoshop, then shift the overall Hue along the colour spectrum until you land on this.
The black is sweet though.
it looks like they've dyed it pinkish...
The black is tasteful. The green one looks like vomit.
I prefer the vomit.
Vomit is pretty metal tbh
Verily, ye green hue 'tis that of a newborn's feces. Not in an objectionable manner, however.
This post now concludeth!
Actually I think the black one is closer to newborn feces.
For those of us who changed our kid's first diapers... this is the fucking truth...
The green looks awesome and a great price but man....Does it have the same Agile neck profile?
I had an Interceptor 727 (not pro) and while it was an ok guitar, it just played really bad for me and I could not get comfortable with the neck.
