    Not posted on eBay or Reverb yet.

    Thought I'd give you guys first crack if anyone is interested.

    Don't see these very often:
    AL-3000, Neck Thru & Matching Headstock

    Micro-swirls in the picking area and a little discoloration on the pickups. Other than that, pristine, not a mark, scratch or blemish.

    HSC included.

    I'll spare you the obligatory copy/paste, but here's a handy link if you want the specs:

    http://www.rondomusic.com/al3000thrubbrq.html

    Orig $700 + shipping (with case) from Rondo. I'll most likely start at $550 on eBay/Reverb, then start to drop it after a while if no takers, but we can do a little better than that for someone on here right now, before it even gets listed.

    PM me if interested. IMG_3017 (2).JPG IMG_3019 (2).JPG IMG_3021 (2).JPG IMG_3020 (2).JPG IMG_3022 (2).JPG IMG_3023 (2).JPG

    The case has 4 clips, minor wear and tear (scuffs), but overall good shape. Case key and truss rod tool included. Complimentary bag of silica gel. LOL

    Guitar still has the plastic sheet on the back switch cover (round) plate. IMG_3024 (2).JPG IMG_3026 (2).JPG IMG_3030 (2).JPG IMG_3034 (2).JPG IMG_3040 (2).JPG

    BTW - no buzz, all notes play clearly.

    Low action. Low E = 1.0mm @ 12th fret, Hi E = 1.25mm @ 12th fret.

    Pretty heavy sucker - actual weight of the guitar = 10lb, 10oz.

    Buyer will pay actual shipping, 42" X 16.5" X 7", 22lbs, from zip 07002

    Wow, what a rarity! I've heard of them but never actually saw one in the wild. If it was left-handed or I was right-handed, we'd have some deal done. Instead, GLWTS...

    Well, we could bust out a jigsaw, make it a double cut, and flip the nut! LOL

    Thank you for the good wishes.

    Probably have to rearrange the saddles to match the string gauges as well...:)

    Hope it stays in AGF hands... It´s a beauty.

    Those detailed pics are appreciated @Buddy (eye candy)

    @tobijohn you need to learn to play right-handed...

    I need to reduce my collection. "Unfortunately," I've acquired some really nice Agiles over the last couple years, many of them remarkable in one way or another (several with old headstocks, a couple hard to find models, a double bound, etc.), and it's REALLY hard to decide which ones are going to go out the door. I love every single one of them for different reasons.

    I will keep some. I feel like 10 might be a reasonable number to keep. I want to keep more. But I need space for my daughter to play and to put her stuff, and make her own... and guitars take up a lot of space. I can't keep the guitars in the attic (way too hot in summer, way too cold in winter), and I can't keep them in the basement (too humid / chance of water backups, etc). So the guitars all live in my living room and dining room areas. And one (my beater) in the kitchen. And a couple in the bedroom. And the hallway. And every other room. They are all over the place. It's too much. So some have to go.

    It's VERY hard to pick. I've sold off about 10 guitars so far (not all Agiles). They were the easiest to come to terms with. I will still have to sell more after this one, and it's getting harder and harder to pick.

    BTW - I still have that SX Mockingbird copy if anyone was thinking about it. (There's a for sale post about it on here somewhere). Some dude (I assume dude) won the auction but never paid, so I got pissed and jacked the price and re-listed it. I don't expect to get what I have it listed for. I'd happily take offers on it.

    It's just so frustrating to wait the whole week for the auction to finish, then wait a whole bunch of days more for a payment that never comes. I had the thing all boxed up and ready to go. Just... frustrating. I was hoping the winner would eventually come back and say he wanted to buy it, so I could say, "Well, pay the price it's listed for now, since you didn't pay your auction." But that never happened. So now I'm just shooting myself in the foot and wasting time with it. I'll lower the price soon.
