Here is my 3100, love it.
Have no idea why uploaded pics have been rotated, sorry
Awesome work on that video and nice picking.
Yes it is. Found it advertised on the CL back East for $40. $40!!
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 !
*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.
Looks really cool. How does it sound?
I worked on mine this weekend and got some mini-hums installed in the P90 routes.
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.
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 used to own this one
I won this LP 2500 Sunday night after I posted the photo above so now I'm back in the club!
I figured my first post on a Telecaster forum should be a pic of my new Agile 3010.
Howdy and welcome!
Nice looking guitar!
My (quite light) AL-3100MCC in Sea Foam...
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!)
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.
