    I'd love to have an Agile AD-201. There was a cherry one on Rondo a week ago that had a tune-o-matic bridge instead of the wraparound and a 1 3/4" nut. $225. Someone bought it, of course. It killed me that I didn't have the money. Bummer.

    I'm crossing my fingers, hoping that a similar TV yellow one shows up.

    I went back through most of the pages & didn't see if I posted this AD201. If it's a duplicate I'll delete or post a different Agile ;)!
    [​IMG]*crikey, it won't even post my imgur images. Geeeez

    It'd help if you could post more than 1 image at a time from a phone on this site.

    About a month ago I plucked some low-hanging fruit on eBay, an SX VTG Series short scale Tele-style that ended up going for $2.25 Canadian. I felt bad about getting it so cheap and later sent him what I'd been prepared to pay for it.

    Anyhow, it's quite a nice lil' guitar and suits my wife's smaller hands better than a 25 1/2" scale.

    My most recent Rondo acquisition, SX Thinline. '51 Nocaster Pickups, new CTS pots, CRL, Switchcraft jack. Locking tuners in transit, and graphtech saddles. The best value out there. $263 all in. ImageUploadedByTDPRI1452393627.463100.jpg

    I just picked up an AL 2000 goldtop with humbuckers. Did swap out the pups with Duncans and man, sounds and plays great.

    Just sold this to a forum member. AL300M. Thought this thread could use the prOn.

    My first good electric guitar was a 2007 Agile Dauntless, a beautiful amber color. I regret having sold it but couldn't justify keeping it after buying a very similar US made LP.
    Below is my first telecaster style. Because I already knew about Agile quality, I didn't hesitate to buy it online. It's the TC-625 MN-TBR. I've upgraded the pickups to Fender Custom Shop '51 Nocasters.

    I'm calling this one LANGD--Like a new guitar day!
    I've had this AL3200 since 2012, but recently completed some work on it that has me all gaga over it again like it's brand new. I installed a Vaughn Skow Velvet Tele pickup set, which called for conversion rings, so I made up a pair. Did a fret level & dress and finally got around to cutting a the zero-friction nut to go with the Hipshot Trilogy.
    About the finish, I gotta say this guitar has gotten more color compliments than any guitar I've ever owned. Blue wasn't really my first choice; I was really after a cherry sunburst, but lefty wide-neck AL3200's were not a constant in the Rondo line up. I'd been watching the website closely for months, and when a lefty wide-neck 3200 finally re-appeared after a long absence, blue was the best--if not the only--color choice available. I've grown to really love it.
    Under that chicken-head knob is a rotary PU switch: 1. neck; 2. neck & bridge parallel in-phase; 3. neck & bridge series out-of-phase (this gives a great Peter Green-like honk); 4. bridge
    The pot closest to the bar tailpiece is a master volume. The neck tone pot is push-pull which in down position makes it a control for the volume bypass cap.

    I figured my first post on a Telecaster forum should be a pic of my new Agile 3010.

    Here's a few I"ve had over the years. Some I wish I still had.
    3100 in burst
    2000 in root beer (excellent guitar!)
    SX furrian
    SX Hawk

    I modded the hawk with new hardware and pickups (gray bottoms from guitarfetsh). Sounded amazing! Neck was changed to a Squier VM Strat neck with rosewood. A local pro heard it and paid me a ridiculous sum for it as he was tone searching at the time. I had to accept. Wish I hadn't. It was the only strat I ever truly loved.

    The furrian was good, but I sold it after I started buying Fenders. Not a bad entry level tele.

    The AL2k was one of the better deals I ever had. Swapped out the knobs for some tele style chrome dome knobs. EVerything else stayed stock. I added a headstock decal for more bling.

    The AL3k....wish I still had it! The twin P90's were solid! Nothing needed updating.

    Hi there! Just picked this up from GC, $149.99 used. I was looking at the usual suspects in the "cheap, but not necessarily horrible guitar" category, (MIM Fender, Squire, G & L, etc,) found this, and after a bit of Due Diligence said "what the heck, it's Christmas!"


    Initially I must say that for the price, I'm impressed. Not sure of the exact model, but I'm guessing an ST-802 or ST-1000. According to Rondo's website, (from 1998, by the looks of it,) the 802 has a different bridge and the back of the guitar is black, not sunburst like this one.


    A nice touch.
    If it's the 1000, that would make it the "better" model with an upgraded bridge and, be still my heart, alnico V pickups! Perhaps there's a way to tell. The ST-1000 is $300 new on Rondo's website, but currently out of stock. It's a shame if they stopped making these. On the used market, half price and in mint condition, it's a bargain.
    Haven't had a chance to plug it into an amp yet, but it's been fun to play and sounds good. For an unplugged electric anyway. Makes me wonder why these aren't more popular.
