    Pretty cool, though I'm sure it will drive the Kramer purists nuts. Kinda like when Charvel released the Desolation series of LP looking guitars with Floyds.

    Completely agree. I've got a neck through, Seymour Duncan loaded, gold top Charvel DS1 Pro Stock. It's the main reason why I've never felt the need to buy an AL-3200 from Rondo. Sorry Kurt.

    I have an SK-1 ST, and love it so much that I would welcome a Pro Stock into the house. Those colored pickups just do something for me.

    I have a Hard Luck Kings Bossman for now, but an upgrade would be a duel between the Pro Stock and a Schecter Solo. I wouldn't look twice at the Agile in this category anymore.

    I'm looking forward to seeing real life pics of this one. (y)

    The pointy horn helps a lot with the overall look, but I can't help think that's the kind of thing Kurt should have gone with a while back, right down to an unmarked ebony fretboard.

    Pretty cool. This is what the Jackson Monarch should've looked like.

    Full on review will come Friday? Starting with full unboxing pics straight on to sound clips. Well, maybe not sound clips as it is equipped with Emgs and everybody thinks every guitar worth Emgs sounds the same, and that might be true!

    I like that style headstock which provide a straighter pull on the strings through the nut

    It arrived. Lite review first.
    Flawless cosmetically. Nice weight. A tad on the heavy side which I like. Better looking in person than anything I've seen online. I Did need to adjust the jacked up Floyd Rose. Set up was not good. I sanded down the Floyd nut so the strings would sit lower at the first three frets and adjusted the tension to the base of the Floyd bridge became flush. Good now


    The neck is not a slim taper. Not fat but has a bit o beef. I am letting it acclimate to the room before I do anymore adjustments if any. I have it very close to what I like. I did not plug it in nor put the whammy bar in.

    I did however try it out in a generic Les Paul case and it fit very nicely. So I will be ordering one of those to keep it in. So far, typical pat for the course adjustments. I already like it more than the Agile 3100mcc with Floyd I once had. Thinner body on the Kramer and very comfortable.

    Update soon.
