This popped up on the local CL an Agile AL3200. In fact, one of the very first AL3200s ever (last owner checked the serial with Maker, and it's likely one of the first 15 or so).
Lake Placid Blue metallic finish with single natural binding. Since it was one of the first, last owner replaced the nut (had a luthier do it) with a Tusq XL. Also has been modded with pearl topped metal knobs, Guardless. He had the 3-way and jack replaced with switchcraft, with a metl jack plate. Also redid the harness wiring with high grade stuff. He also put on Grover locking 18:1 tuners.
Also came with a TV Jones Classic pickup in the Bridge, he had a tech install, with the English mount. He gave me the stock bridge pup as well.
Past owner before him scotchbrighted the neck, perfectly. Once I buffed it a tiny bit, you can not SEE it's scotchbrighted, but you can feel it.
Heck, the TV Jones and Tuners are almost 2 1/2 bills by themselves.
I got her for $350 with the Hard Case.
For those not familiar with the Agiles and/or theAL 3200 model. Agiles are made in Korea for Rondo, and only Rondo Music. I have another, and AL3000M lp (Mohogany with a 3/4" Maple Cap). They are top notch fit and finish. The only place they skimp are the stock Pickups. And even those are as good as anything GFS puts out. They are well worth much more than they sel for new. Current AL3200s range from $600-$700 new. From a few people that own both the AL3200 and Gibson Axcess, say that the AL3200 is every bit the guitar the Axcess is. The AL3000 and 3100s are the match (once you upgrade the pups to match) for Gibson LP Standard or better.

I am officially in LESBIANS (Scott Pilgrim reference, aka LOVE)!! This one weighs in somewhere between 8 and 9 lbs on my bathroom scale. So I'm guessing around 8.7 lbs. Fits me like a glove. The Belly cut, the contoured neck. Really does play like butter.
Not one flaw on the finish. The Lake Placid blue metallic is just stunning. The Natural binding just flat works with it.
And, oh does it sound georgeous. I have had a VERY minimal time on my own amps at home (got home after youngest was in bed), and at very low volumes. But even through the guy's crappy little Crate, 15W SS amp it sounded fantastic. Even at the tiny volumes on my amps it was amazing. Can NOT wait until tommorow.
At first I thought the verb was on. Nope, just the difference of the neck through. WOW (not just set neck, but neck through the entire body, IS the center part of the body). The TV Jones is fantastic in this and really works with the Stock Alnico. I have an older AL3000M, and the stock Alnicos have improved.
I will get a blackout kit for the rings, poker chip and back panels. Unless I can find chrome pup rings. I MAY LIKELY put another TV Jones in the neck. Going to play her a bit and decide on that.
Definately a keeper, for ever. Downside is, as beautifull as my AL3000M is, it feels like a brick now, next to the 3200.
