    Yes he is. He was exchanging some emails with TJ about a Agile double-cut and in one of those emails he told TJ and asked him to share it with the forum so that we wouldn't be shocked. This was months ago.
    He is just selling the Agile brand and he intends to keep Rondo open and sell Douglas and SX instruments.
    That's all I know and my answer will at least bump your post.

    He should split it into two. Agile and Agile Xtreme for fanned frets, outrageous ironing board designs and anything over 6 strings

    Based on the guitar in the pic in the OP, I would feel like I had been done if I paid more than more than $5.

    I wasn't aware that he was planning on selling Agile but keeping Rondo. It's easy to imagine running Agile takes more work even if the margins are higher. If you wanted to still own part of business while putting in fewer hours and increasing your capital I could imagine that making a great deal of sense.

    But then how would you claim a huge tax writeoff after it all goes belly up ? Come on Mickey...you have to think more like the accountants at Gibson USA

    I disagree. The fan frets and megastrings are still a niche market, IMO. To have consistent sales you still want to have a line of "regular" guitars.
