FWIW, shipping on mine was a little over $26 and I'm about a twenty-six hour drive away...
CRAP!!!! I paid $3 per hour and you only paid $1 per hour? I got fucked!!!
One more conjecture - what are the chances that these two guitars came from different factories? Slim to none in my book.
Are the AD-3200's really from WMI? Kurt indicated that in the last communication. Maybe the 3100mcc Purple Vomit also switched to WMI?
Or maybe both came from the "other" factory?
If I had to bet, i'd say both the AL-3200MCC and AD-3200MCC are from the same source...
Yeah, that's just goofy. If I don't do the blackout treatment, I'm going to ditch the poker chip, go with creme knobs and maybe see how it would look with a creme pickguard..
That is one of the most beautiful Agiles I've seen in a long time.
It reminds me of the late 70s early 80s Westbury guitars made in Japan by Matsumoko.
If def needs black trim rings on blurple and no toggle ring on any of them. I dont think the blurple is bad its unique and different and people like ugly guitars but its not gloss finish like the others for some reason. I had a agile septor burl top it was rough feeling and matte finish made it look kinda cheap and unfinished to me. that blurple needs some gloss on it for me to want it.
I wish rondo did the flame or quilt in a white finish like the center of the ocean burst but no burst just white would look great on this 3200 or any al series
These are a very nice looking design, almost have a Yamaha meets Gibson vibe going on. For me the finishes leave a lot to be desired though. The 2TS is ok but not really a fan of the quilt. 2TS flame or Lemon/Tobacco/Ice Tea flame would be pretty tempting.
Ok, Ocean burst order submitted. Mostly because I have other guitars close to the 2TS finish and no blue (or green) guitars.
I do plan on swapping out the knobs. I seem to recall someone here doing that on an ocean burst and liked how it looked. Will have to find the thread.
If you're talking about creme knobs, I did that with an AL-3100MC. The problem is it's hit or miss trying to find creme knobs that match the Agile plastic, most of the aftermarket ones have a slight yellow undertone:
I did the creme on oceanburst as well and tried blue as well . Creme won out.
Yep we need kurt to sell the right cream color knobs and we would buy them. I have tried different china sellers and usa sellers there either white or yellow never the right color. I changed the pickup rings on my 3200 to a more white color to match the white knobs i had that seems easier than finding knobs that match
Im also leaning towards the ocean burst to match the 3200 I have. I would have already jumped on a purple or green quilt.
Do the new 3200’s need special Agile rings? I assume the AD-3200 rings will be the same, and I agree, a lot easier to replace rings and knobs to get them to match.
Or I could send them to @rmfroyd to get them gold leafed.
I have to assume everything is the same as it is on the single cutaway AL-3200MCCs other than no pickguard on the AD...
I assume the same, but I don’t know what fits the AL-3200MCCs these days.
I may just keep the cream on the 2TS if I swap in uncovered zebras, but then again, I may not!
I have one, and it is awesome. Made in 1982.
My sentiments exactly. I think I found my next guitar.
I went silver barrels on my Oceanburst because the cream speed knobs I had were not a match for the Agile plastics either.
They do however match the cream plastics from my Dean ML which was made by Unsung in Korea I think.
I once saw some cream witch hats with silver reflectors that I have not been able to find again. I think they were from Papa Ds in the UK
I have some clear top hats I am tempted to try painting the insides with Duplicolor, maybe take a trim ring into Oreilly.

Strange I was looking at Ibanez Artist's and Yamaha SBG's and I had my eye on a '82 AR-100 then these came out.
Pull the trigger! If you get Blurple, that will be one of each sold to an AGFer who can take real pictures for the less adventurous.
