So, i'm looking at maybe getting an Agile Les Paul copy. I wrote to Rondo and asked about the build quality versus the real thing. i was told that it's not the same. but, a good instrument to have around for live shows, beginners etc. A lot of people around the net swear by these guitars! why? are they that good? with some changes to the pickups, electronics, are they really that good? i need a replacment for my 79 Les Paul custom and am not going to spend that much money again! so, i'm looking at Agile and maybe getting some High Order pickups. that seems like a good alternative. i've even read that some folks like the Agile more so than a real Gibson! makes me want one even more... So, if these guitars are not the real thing, why are they getting so much praise? i'm really interested in a good guitar but cannot afford another Gibson.
