    They're actually pretty commonly found...it's just that they don't last long. Guitar Center's online used database is usually the place. Four of my five Agiles came from there for ridiculous prices.

    I grabbed an AD2300 P90 (in the black finish) off Reverb for $125 a few months ago. It actually had a little bit of undisclosed damage so I ended up getting it for $85...didn't bond with it so I eventually sold it but it was a neat guitar.

    Wow, that's a great deal. Never seen one of those. What was the bonding block?

    Nothing too serious, really just a case of other guitars that I liked being better so I didn't play it very much. In my opinion the 2K series Agiles don't match up to the 3K series...all the 2Ks I've had are long gone but the 3Ks are still in active use :).

    I really like mine is all I can say but yeah he's asking to much. The stock p90's really sound good on the ad2300 , it's nice light and has a comfortable neck for me, what not to like? Its in my regular rotation. Really like the finish on that one with the wood grain really showing through.

    I wouldn't take less than 300.00 for mine. It's the wide neck and sold new for 299.00. I really don't want to sell but if I did that would be my price. 20171111_141135.jpg

    to join the chorus, mine is a plain top wide neck and was about $220 shipped (via ebay auction) as i recall. price is kinda steep though if someone really wants one (or doesn't know any better)... or maybe the guy's in no hurry to sell it. i have no intention of selling mine any time soon though (it's the only thing i've got with p90s).

    My only P90 as well. And from the searches that I've done in the past I haven't seen many pop up for sale. I guess that's why they sell fast. Like I said I'm keeping mine.....

    Yeah, usually the excuse people use when they price their gear ridiculously above market value is "I'm not in a rush to sell" :ROFLMAO:

    To which I usually reply "That's OK, I'm not in a rush to buy something for double what it normally sells for used".

    I had this conversation the other day with someone on Reverb who was selling a guitar I want. They typically go for around $800-ish and he has it priced at $1700. It hasn't sold in well over a year and his reasoning was laughable to say the least.

    that guitar in the auction is a stunner - but i would not give him $300 for it - let alone what he's dreaming about.

    I never begrudge people fishing for suckers, if they are being truthful.

    I've done it in the past with an out of production Agile with no obvious competitive guitars on thd used market.

    You need only find that one person who irrationally wants what you are selling.

    Agree. It looks like a one piece top. I can't tell for sure.

    There’s no top on that guitar, it’s just a mahogany body. Likely two piece.

    I looked for a swamp ash stl Furrian for a long time. I finally found one some what local and I paid the guy his asking price. It's because it's a model that's hard to find and out of production for a long time. I've done a lot of upgrades and it's now one of my favorites!
