    Since I got my AL2800 Silverburst (I think it was one of the first batches of the new headstock/stubby horn ALs), I've always wanted to find an original headstock Agile. I saw this pop up on the local CL earlier in the week and knew I had to check it out. Saturday morning I drove out, checked it out, and practically threw my cash at the guy.

    I believe it's an AD-2200 circa 2003/2004? It looks like these all had LP Jr.-type tortoise guards, but the seller said this one was a Gibson guard. Very nice 3-ply b/w/b guard, and I like these better with dual pickups than the Jr guard. It's not a case queen, but it's still in very good condition--only "blemishes" are where he filled the original pickguard screws. Stock dual P90s, wraparound bridge.

    Came with a really nice SKB hardshell case--the case alone is probably worth $75-100 or so.

    Pickups are stock but electronics are upgraded w/ CTS goodies.

    All in all, I absolutely love it, and it was worth every penny. After a clean and polish and new set of strings, it really rocks. Raunchy P90 growl, has a cool Social Distortion vibe, and cleans up nicely by playing around with volume and tone knobs. It does have a bit of a neck dive, so I think a Well Hung strap is in order. Great guitar, very nice hardshell case, and a piece of Agile history at a very nice price. Definitely a great CL find!

    Pity they changed the headstock design.
    I plead guilty, I prefer the old headstock meself. :)

    Very nice score, glad someone here snagged that one! Looks to be in great shape and the mods/nice case are icing on the cake!

    In my opinion, in the top three best finds so far this year. Congrats on the scoop.
    You are going to want one of my "Ricky" straps coming up. The winds of shit are blowing.

    Very cool guitar. I was e-mailing the seller to see if he would ship to NJ... Let me know if you ever want to get rid of it.

    At some point you may just need to give up the left handed plan and attack from another angle :)

    That's awesome. I've been seriously contemplating building a DC junior lately.
