    I've been gunning for a honey burst Agile 3100m for a while now. I even wrote Kurt telling him it would probably really sell well if he got some in, hoping he'd get to ordering some.

    Well last week on vacation I get an email and what's staring me in the eye? Agile AL-3200MCC HSBF. Well damn. Looks like I'll be on the couch for awhile. Happy vacation to me.

    Here's the link. When I bought mine they had 3. Not sure how many are there now.

    http://www.rondomusic.com/al3200hsbfmcc.html


    Mine arrived in great shape, though the action on the bass side is a little high, I lowered it some, but I'm getting a little buzz. I'll get it set up/fretwork to get it a little lower but overall still pretty standard and is very comfortable to play.

    Weighed in and 9lbs even. Top is simply gorgeous. Just what I wanted- reminds me of a '59 sunburst that has faded (which is what I was going for hehe). I green-scotchgaurded the neck, so now its fast and slick. Sustain and harmonics are really really nice. These through-neck 3xxx Agiles just sing - this is #3 for me. I will not be changing out the pups right away as they are respectable and they cover the blues/rock/vintage metal vibe I'd use them for, so I'm GTG for now. I may put SD Antiquities or maybe DiMarzio 36th PAFs in there eventually.

    Here's the porn:

    I've been looking at these higher end models and they all have necks that are only .75" thick at the first fret. That is thinner than what I would feel comfortable with. I most likely will go with a 2500 which has a thicker, but narrower neck. Thickness is more important than width for me.

    That is a beautiful top. The mahogany they used is very nice. I hope it treats you well.

    Congrats! That is a nice one. I have a HB AL-3200 myself that I love. I like the top on yours better I think

    Do you mean overall thickness of the body or?

    Thanks all for the kind words. She's a keeper.

    thickness at the edge of the body. Spec states it is 1 and 15/16". I want to know does it measure to that or is it less.
