    Well guys, I know I said I didn't have anything else I wanted, but I have been watching this ad on Reverb for a few months and just wanted to see what it would go for. It started at $700, but I saw this morning that it was finally down to a number that I was comfortable with, so after talking to the wife, I pulled the trigger. I am officially becoming a true AGFer! Just in case the link gets pulled, it's a blue flame 3100MC with black plastics and includes a hard shell case. Got it for $350 and $70 shipping. I will update when it ships and then when I get it. Thanks again for all your support guys! The encouragement (read: enabling) I receive here is truly the reason for my recent great buys, and I've been very happy so far. Seller pics in the bump!

    Shorter entry thread to make up for the last one!!!! LOL

    I'm sure that I will! I loved the look, and thanks to the reviews here I'm certain that the quality will be there too.

    It shipped out today for it's journey back across the country from west coast to east coast. The seller messaged me that it cost more than the $70 to ship, which I fully believe. Can't wait! Also grabbed a special something from @tvvoodoo in the process! I think I'm more excited about that Well Hung package! Like what I did there?

    I think you might be very glad you contacted me - and thank you!

    Beautiful photos there of a sweet guitar!

    Thank YOU! I already am. I've admired your straps for a while and am happy I finally decided to make it happen.

    Well guys, my NGD will be a bit delayed this week. The tracking on my incoming AL-3100 says Wednesday arrival, but I'm working overtime after working my regular shift both Wednesday and Thursday. That means that when I get home on Wednesday, I may have enough time to open the box and quickly check things out before having to go to bed just to get up and do it all again the next day, and still not being able to play it before going to bed on Thursday (early Friday morning). So it may be Friday evening after work before I get to play around with it and give it a really good look over. This work thing just keeps getting in the way of my free time!:angry:

    That's my favorite Agile. The 3200 is beautiful, but the weight is a deal breaker for me - no way do I want a 12 pound guitar. And these can get up there too, but not generally into that territory. I love the headstock and body binding on those. My 2500 was nicely made and all, but it certainly wasn't as pretty is this one.

    yeah i've always kind of wanted a 3200 mostly because i think the neck-through back looks sexier and i like the idea of the neck contour (since i really don't like playing the higher, dustier frets on my 3010, with my hands the heel really gets in the way unlike any of my other guitars). that said and with eyes wide open, 10 pounds is plenty heavy--borderline already too heavy, ~12 would be a deal-breaker for me. i'd just never want to pick the thing up.

    I like the triple binding too, especially on the headstock. It just looks classy. I was thinking 3010 until I saw this one, and Mossman's former Epi Custom, and then wouldn't go back to the 3010.

    Yea I had to get my 3200 chambered to get the weight down close to 9 lbs, otherwise it'd have been around 10-11 lbs.

    Very nice. You're gonna dig that guitar and Brad makes a serious strap. I have one for each of my Agile ALs and one on a PRS SE Custom 24. HNGD!

    You're going to be pleased with that guitar. Pictures look great - I'm certain in person it will be stunning. It's interesting that the 3200's weigh so much. If my memory is correct my 3100mcc comes in right at 8-ish.

    I'm sure it varies more from unit to unit vs. model to model.
    My 3100s are HEAVY.

    Quick update -- I didn't show yesterday, which is fine by me for now. I'm still working the OT, but now I've also picked up OT for Friday evening as well. I won't have time for anything until maybe Saturday evening after work now.

    The seller contacted me worried because it was supposed to arrive yesterday, but the tracking hasn't changed since the 9th. He checked with USPS and they told him it's probably still in the semi trailer and tracking will change when it's out. He seems more worried right now than I am. I figure it'll be here by Monday at the latest.
