Look No Further For A Great Les Paul Copy!
Take a look around the internet guitar forums and you will find that
Agile guitars by Rondomusic are considered one of the best Les Paul Copy guitars you can buy. The
Al-2000 is the entry level Agile into the Les Paul
copy world. If you don't want to spend a lot of money but
you just want some good quality cheap guitars that play and look like a dream than
Rondomusic has the
Les Paul copy you want.
You get die cast Gover 18 to 1 ratio tuners, wax potted ceramic humbucker pickups,
a solid mahogany guitar body, maple neck with rosewood fretboard, trapezoidal inlays and a stop-bar tailpiece
transfers string vibration to the body of the guitar and produces superior sustain.
The Al-2000's come in a variety of finishes from goldtop, tobacco sunburst,
flametop, rootbeer to cherry sunburst. Fit and finish is top notch. From time to time Rondomusic even offers
certain Al-2000's with P90 pickups.
These Al's range in price from around $200 to
$225. Great guitars to just play around with or mod the heck out of
if you want because they are such cheap guitars. There are plenty of guitar part sites and stores out there where
you can purchase pickup upgrades, wiring upgrades and so forth if that is what you like doing.

The headstock of the Al-2000 is plain in
terms of the detail on it. I have read on some forums about people saying that they replaced the nut on the guitar
for better playability. Others talk about having the frets filed down. Personally, on my Al-2000 I haven’t done a
single modification to it. For me, the guitar played fine right out of the box. I haven’t really noticed any issues
with the nut or the frets. Full disclosure, I am not a professional guitar player, but I know what I like and this
guitar just feels good to play, it stays in tune and the pickups sound pretty darn good! Also if you click on
any of the Rondomusic.com links on this site and buy a guitar I get a commission. This is my way of
making some extra cash so I can buy some more Agile's!
As far as the finish of the guitar goes I
really couldn’t see any deficiencies with my Al-2000.
The guitar looked beautiful and felt solid. The
lacquer is thick and shiny. With the goldtop I read
that some people have said that the shade of gold is not quite to their liking when compared to a real
Gibson. When I look at my guitar I can kind of see
what those people mean but it was only a couple hundred bucks and if you really don’t like it there are lots of
different colors and finishes to choose from.
Do I have anything really negative to say
about the Al-2000? Not really. Obviously it’s not a Gibson, but I would certainly put it up against some of the
Epiphone’s. And besides, if you were in the market for a Gibson you wouldn’t be reading this right now. These
are just great Les Paul copy guitars. I have
had my Al-2000 for a couple of years now and I am still incredibly happy with it.
