New Guitar

Sometimes you have to buy a new guitar. Sometimes you just give in. I saw this and was inspired. Not sure why, it does have a unique look. I figured the expense was not justified. After thinking about this for a week, I came up with the idea to hawk some old junk on ebay. Which in the end worked well.

I had not bought an Agile guitar before. I had heard good things about them. They get high reviews on the internet. I have to say this instrument lives up to the hype. It’s well built and plays great. Overall the instrument looks great. There are a few tiny flaws in the finish, you need to really look to find these.

A few features I like. Single pickup single control strips everything down to the bare bones. The plain top with out a lot of clutter has a nice unique style. The pick up is a P90 style. I don’t own a guitar with one of these so it adds a new sound. The pick sounds good. Its’ got some “twang” that you don’t get with humbuckers.

  1. As you know, I just ordered an Agile as well, although a two-pickup model. I thought about it quite a while, as I’ve used a Strat since 1988, but my recent experience with humbuckers wasn’t very interesting — but of course there was less of a hum problem. So I went with the P90s as either worse or better: bigger sound than Strat-type single-coils, but also more likely to buzz or hum.

    I couldn’t get anyone to buy my old junk but I found a friend who needed some heavy-duty yardwork done, so we worked out a deal. Tomorrow I’ll find out if it was worth it 🙂
