    Hi everyone,

    I've been jonesing for an LP type guitar for a while. I bought an ESP and loved it, but sold it to a friend when I bought my PRS. Craving an LP again but not really wanting to spend a ton of money, I ran into Agile and found a good deal on a used 3010 on Reverb. So glad I did. This thing sounds great! Gonna have to get a 3200 now, too. And maybe a thin 3010 so my back doesn't hurt. Ha! Great guitars. I really, really love the pickups. I suspect these are stock, and they sound great. Intonation is spot on, too. The action may need to come up a hair for a bit more sustain, but you can't hear the slight fret buzz in the amp.

    So glad I gave these a shot! I'll add some pics a little later. It did take a hard hit or some pressure at some point... not sure which. One of the knobs arrived broken, and it was well packed, so that has me a little concerned. But at least it was just the body.

    One question, though... does anyone know if these came with Kluson tuners from the factory?

    Thanks! I thought they came with Grovers. This one has Kluson.

    This is going to be dangerous to my wallet. It's even worse that, to my understanding, Rondo does short to medium runs of most models and colors, so I'll regularly be jonesing for another one. Ha!

    3010 is a great model to start with an agile, i stated with 2500 but 3000 and up are where its at. There great guitars for the money hard to beat! Its easy to get the agile bug i bought i think 6 this year lol but sold few off for the colors i really wanted, theres to dam many finishes to choose from lol
    i started my lp guitars with esp ltd since they were cheap and usually tight fit and finish but agiles burn then down for half the cost

    welcome.

    perhaps rondo could also interest you in some of the SX models like the furrian, liquid, or hawk.
    So inexpensive for the value that you cant afford not to have them strewn all around your house.

    Well, I'm a bit bummed. It has sustained some damages. There's a chip out of the finish on the top, side of it and the lower volume knob was smashed. This thing was actually packed pretty well (it was in a hardshell case that was bagged and placed in a large box with peanuts tightly packed on all sides), so it worries me a bit that something impacted it hard enough to break the knob. I don't see any damage to the neck, but we're going to see if UPS can do something about it. Hopefully they do. If not, I've already found my next one. LOL :D

    Haha! Thanks!

    Thank you. I almost bought a couple of different 2000 series guitars, but after some reading, decided to go with a 3000 series of some sort.

    You, sir, are a bad influence. :D

    I'll get them posted soon!

    Ha! I get it, I get it... pics or it didn't happen. I'll post some. :)

    Welome to the forum Orangepeel.

    Just a thought, but seeing as how the tuners have been changed, and the knobs too . . . maybe the pickups aren't original either.
