Bros,

I backdoored an Agile PS-924WE from...get this...a seller in Anchorage, Alaska. Perfect price, too...$289. It's an Amber Flame PRS copy with an ebony fretboard, Grover tuners, Wilkinson tremolo, 1/2" bookmatched maple top, and a coil-tap switch. Fantastic value...look at how thick the top is and that huge slab of ebony! Very happy!

Now, for the porn:

Only planned upgrades are an Earvana nut, GraphTech saddles, and Seymour Duncan pups...may even go active with the Blackouts, not sure yet. For cosmetic purposes, I might send it off and have the inlays replaced with abalone dots.

These gutiars DESTROY the PRS SE series. These are archtop and unlike the SE guitars, these tops aren't veneers...they're chunks of fucking maple.

I'm happy.

Cool.
A new guitar is a good thing
(especially when you haven't had one
in a while). :eusa_clap

Now you need an amp.

Dave, glad you're back with a guitar in hand. You got some serious skills, cut us a track and let us hear them chops! Nice axe, I gotta look into Agile, don't know much about em!

Thanks a lot, Alex. I'm going to see how the living conditions in the barracks are, that'll determine whether I'm getting a new POD X3 to record with or an actual amp. But let me knock the rust off and I'll post some shit. :thumbs:

Check out www.rondomusic.com and go to the last page of Electric Guitars to see the good shit. Everything else is typical budget stuff, but everything from their 3000 series and up are great quality.

*EDIT: These axes have caught my eye:

The thing is, I don't know if my barracks will be able to accomodate a full-size amp. If it can, the guy I bought this guitar from has a Mesa/Boogie Lonestar Special 1x12 combo I'm gonna snag. If I can't have an amp, then I'm going to get a POD X3 and run it into my laptop.

I'm not sure I'd be able to leave an amp that nice sitting around a barracks.

Ohh, tell ya what bro, grab the amp, you won't regret it especially if ya can get a good price. Then if it is too big for the barracks I'll keep it for ya til you can pry it outta my hands :eusa_whis
