My friend owns this guitar and let me play it. While it sounded nice, and played well, it seems to be more of a collecters guitar. I have an Agile AL-4000 just like this it cost about 3900$ less but plays and sounds exactly the same. Your just paying for a name..
I absolutley love this guitar. I've played on plenty in my day, and none compare to such. Being in three metal bands, it's hard to find a guitar that can withold the wear and tear. This is the one.
