I ordered a tigers eye flame 3100 the weekend before last. It arrived last Friday. I decided to compare it to some other guitars I have that I thought would be a lot like it. I planed on using a 2013 Gibson 60s tribute Les Paul Studio, a 2007 Gibson Les Paul SL and a 2008 Carvin California Carved Top. How ever as I was setting up the Agile to my liking I soon realized that the neck was much thicker than either Gibson I planed to use. Both have a 60s slim taper profile. Which I love. I chose instead of the Les Paul SL to use a 2003 Gibson ES 135. It has the 50s neck profile which is much more inline with that of the Agile. I have to say that first impressions of the Agile were very positive. It looks great and is finished very well. I looked it over very closely and found nothing except for great craftsmanship. Unlike the 60s tribute Les Paul. I could write a lengthy list of things lacking in it's craftsmanship. I spent the entire weekend off and on going from one guitar to the other. I played all through the same amp. A Mojo Diamond through a custom 2 ten cab. The reason I chose that amp over others is because it is the one I tend to use most often. It sounds great and I don't have to wake the neighbors to get a good tone out of it. Seriously I do like that amp. I did put the Agile through a Marshall DSL for a while and Remembered why I don't use that amp very often. I tend to turn it up way past the point I should and I get dirty looks from the neighbors for a few days after. Over all my impression of the Agile is very positive. It has a great sound both clean and dirty. It has stunning looks and plays just the way I would like a neck of this profile to play. It really is very much like the ES 135. The pickups seemed a little hotter in the Agile. The ES 135 has 57 classics in both positions. The guitar it had the most in common with tonally is the Carvin. I forget what pickups are in it. They are Carvins though. My final thoughts about the Agile 3100 is that it is a great guitar. Lets forget that it cost several times less than anything I used to compare it to. Forget that it isn't American made. What it comes down to is the Agile is just a great instrument. Looks, fit and finish are on par with the others. Well the Gibson's are both finished with nitrocellulose. So at some point my hand does get a little stuck to the back of the neck. That didn't happen with the Agile. I guess if I wanted that experience with the Agile I could play it after eating ice cream with my fingers. At one point I thought the Agile was a little noisy during pauses. It had quite a bit of hum. That was short lived as I plugged the Carvin in and listened to the hum it produced. Oddly though the simi hollow Gibson is dead quiet. Go figure. The Agile is not my favorite guitar of the bunch. I have a soft spot in my heart for the Gibson SL Les Paul. If the Agile had a slimmer neck profile I may like it as much. I like the sound of the stock pickups once they are at the proper height. I really like the coil split feature. The only other guitar in this line up that has that is the Carvin. Another thing that surprised me is that the Agile is about the lightest guitar of the group. Even the SL seems to not weigh less. I would like to ad pictures of the guitars but can not for the life of me find my camera. I could take pics with my phone but they always come out blurry and dim. Just imagine some lint balls and that is about what it would look like. If you don't own an Agile I recommend getting several. That is what I plan on doing in the future. I am sure I left out more than I actually included in this review but I hope you get the idea.
