Pretty Neat Lefty

By Aj Jackson

from Vinton, OH

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..


Insanity in Elegence.

By Nicholas N.

from Chicago, IL

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.
