Selling a couple of guitars that don't get much use. Both of these are set-neck Les Paul style single-cutaway guitars in black.
First up, an Agile AL-2000 with gold hardware. These were a special run of their mid-grade model but with the nicer gold metal parts. I have installed a pair of Seymour Duncan Seth Lover pickups (with gold covers,) hence the slightly higher price.
For those who don't know, the Agile AL series are Korean-made Les Paul copies with some design tweaks just to make them look a little less Gibson. The headstocks are re-shaped and the cutaway horn is a little more rounded. Whether you like the look is a matter of taste, I think it looks pretty neat. These are better guitars for the money than current Chinese Epiphones, and I think equal to or better than the older Korean Epis as well. I have three Agiles (two AL's and a Harm) and they are all solid players and great sounding to boot. My Harm in particular is very sweet. This guitar plays and sounds great as well but I'm just not a humbucker guy for the most part.

Next up - Xaviere XV-585 in black. This is definitely more my style - I dig the sharp Florentine cutaway, and the headstock reminds me of old lap steel headstocks. P-90 in the neck, humbucker in the bridge, with just a single volume / tone and a 3-way switch.

This one is INSANELY light. It really does weigh in the 6-7 lb. region, as it's mostly hollow inside like an old Gretsch Jet. I replaced the stock electronics with some pulls from an old Ibanez S-series. The guitar plays OK, but the neck has a weird set to it. It's fine in the lower registers but the end of the fretboard has a rise and the upper end has a pretty low action. I have it strung with 11's now with very low action, it's just not an even action across the fretboard. When I got it, it was strung with 9's or 10's with standard / medium action and the problem was not noticeable at all. It will probably set up really well with lighter strings and a higher action, but I wanted to be up front about it.
It sounds fabulous. The pickups are the same as the popular aftermarket GFS models that get so many rave reviews.
