I finally got my first Agile - 3100M Blue Flame that went on sale for $299. Got it in after 6 days. Box was in good shape and there was no shipping damage to the guitar. This one has single binding on the headstock and neck, triple binding on the body, is 1.75" thick at the edge, and weighs about 8 lbs. The weight is a plus for me since I'm not getting any younger and it's well-balanced. The binding has an aged, yellow tint that I really like - doesn't look like something that's brand new and shiny white. The body appears to be 3 pieces judging by the back and the neck is 1-piece. No finish cracks - neck is stable. Out of the box, the setup was very good: frets are well-dressed, action is good, intonation is set well, and the nut slots are cut properly. It plays great. The neck is comparable to the Epi necks (60's Slim Taper) - very comfortable. Not sure about the pickups yet. They seem hotter than typical PAF, but I need some time with the BJ-III and the silverface Twin to get the measure of them. I have a full harness/pickup set from an older model 3010SE that I bought off Ebay (the regular, non-marked pickups), so I have something to swap if I'm not happy. I'd like to say the fit and finish were great, but that's not 100% true. Overall, everything is great and there are no major flaws. The minor things that are "irking" me a bit are: - the flame top has a strange "swirl/streak" in the grain that shows up under proper lighting. It happens on both halves, so they are matched from the same veneer. Not a major thing - sort of adds a unique character. I'll give it a day or two to see if it bothers me or not. - there is a small patch spot on the fretboard. Overall the ebony FB is nice, but there is one spot where you can tell it was filled and not properly dyed. You can't feel it, so I'll probably just dye it to match. - there is a crack/indentation on the headstock. You can feel it, but it's located on the fleur-de-lis, so it's not very noticeable. Doesn't affect anything, but it is a blem. Once again, I could fill with CA and sand/buff, but not sure if I want to bother. Overall, it's looking to be a solid unit except for the minor cosmetic blems. Problem is, this was on sale and there are no more blue flame 3100M units left. I'm not sure how a replacement would be handled. Considering it was only $299, I'm not sure that I want to bother with a return and wait 2 weeks for the turnaround. Like I said, I can touch up and fix the headstock and fb blems easily, but I can't help thinking that my DBZ Imperial was the same price and had NO blems. However, this thing plays as good or better than anything else I've got. Now, if Kurt offered to swap it with a blue quilt..... Okay - obligatory pics. 20150804_162610 by Zipslack posted Aug 4, 2015 at 5:11 PM 20150804_162620 by Zipslack posted Aug 4, 2015 at 5:11 PM Notice the slightly "swirls" on the upper and lower bouts. The flame is still there, it's just a lighter streak - not sure what to make of it. 20150804_162710 by Zipslack posted Aug 4, 2015 at 5:11 PM Notice the 3 pieces - one is obviously lighter than the other 2, but no one sees the back. 20150804_162630 by Zipslack posted Aug 4, 2015 at 5:11 PM Fretboard spot - level and smooth, just needs touching up. 20150804_162648 by Zipslack posted Aug 4, 2015 at 5:11 PM Hard to see the indention because of the fleur-de-lis.
