Are the Rondo SX models compareable to Epi LPs?

Say if someone were to order the SX GG1 STU BO (product 434...the wine red one on the first page), would that be comparable to say a low end Epi LP Standard?

Do they do the setup on them before they ship them?

I'm curious, although I'll wait until I find out something for sure before I tell why ;)

Our songs also have the standard pop format: Verse, chorus, verse, chorus, solo, bad solo. All in all, I think we sound like The Knack and the Bay City Rollers being molested by Black Flag and Black Sabbath.

Hey how good are those guitars? Are they good quality? One of those could satisfy my G.A.S. until the cash starts rolling in again!

Thanks!

Dunno how the SX models stack up, but the Agiles are very nice guitars!

And yes, they come nicely set up.

mikespe, those guitars are great quality from what I've heard, defiently comparable to an epi les paul, and msot likely passing them.

Just wait a bit for yoyo to come around and tell you how good rondo guitars are. He's got me convinced.

If that's the case I'm ordering one (maybe 2!!!!) tomorrow! I was going to wait for the Epi Les Paul but if I can get basically the same quality for less HEY I am all for it!

However now I do know which one(s) I want!! There is a nice acoustic (Ovation style) for $169, then there is the one I posted above and also this one HERE.

My head is spinning now!!! I might actually have a REAL guitar soon!! :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

That Agile AL-2500 seems like a really good deal and they get good write ups. I may just have to get one. :lol:

That is after I get a new amp and some sorely needed recording gear.

G.A.S. is a terrible thing to waste. :twisted:

What's the difference between Wax potted humbucker pickups and P-90 pickups? That seems to be one of the differences between the $199 Agile 2500 and the $239 model?

One difference between the 2000 and the 2500 is the 2000 has a 3 piece body and the 2500 has a 2 piece? Besides durability do this make much of a difference?

Thanks

Mikey007,
There's a forum hidden deep within the epiphone web site. I used it to answer some of those kinds of questions when I got my epi. I don't remember the answer to this one spcifically though. Sorry.

Oh, and I do enjoy my epi very much.

I wish I hadn't come across this thread.....I'm seriously G.A.S.'ing for one of those Agile LP copies. I keep hoping someone is going to speak up and tell me they're pieces of junk....but I just keep hearing glowing comments.

How can I *NOT* spend a couple hundred bucks for a completely playable, nice-looking LP copy?? I need help :cry:

I don't actually need to make a house payment this month, do I? I mean, the bank will understand that I NEEDED a new guitar....right?
