    I really like those 2300's (pics below). That's on the list for this year. I'm interested in knowing what the P90's on them are like. I've got one old (1949) P90 for reference, and I can easily be persuaded to buy a pair of the brand new Kinman noiseless P90's just to try them out.

    They also have the 201 series (singlecut "specials"), but those have the combination bridge/tailpiece wraparounds. I think I'd rather have the separate tailpiece/bridge setup.

    Try raising the pickups. Since the polepieces are metal, not actual magnets (unlike strat pickups) they can be kept very close to the strings without causing problems. Should get you more/fatter output.

    Congrats to op, HNGD & Enjoy!

    I've always liked the looks of the 2300, but I knew I wouldn't like the control setup, but when they came out with the 201 (which I also liked the looks of when I saw it), I got one of those because the controls were more like what I personally prefer. Here's a pic for those wondering what the difference is;

    No , I wanted to but my wife ordered the other one which is fine but I would like the wide neck one which may happen soon . They are just cool guitars though . Well worth the money , needed a few tweaks but nothing terrible as far as adjustment goes . Looks great . Got to get motivated and swap pickups then we will see what it sounds like but as is not bad in fact great with a OD pedal.

    The pickup routes on these and the sx's are shallow, anything other than stock p-90's wont fit cause of depth issues

    Im saying that cause i had 2 SX's LP shape and my lace sensors p-90s were to deep for the route, Im only assuming the same for the agile, Fralin noiseless p-90s will fit in the shallower holes, if someone could take out 1 of the pickups on the agile, we all would know

    The wide neck version is on my acquisition list for 2010.
