The AL 2500 has been noticeably absent from the Agile AL lineup for a couple of years. With the recent introduction of the AL 1900 and the discontinuation of the AL 2000 it appears the powers that be have decided it is a good time to bring the AL 2500 back into the fold.
We couldn't be happier with development. The AL 2500 and the AL 2000 really were somewhat redundant as they were so similar. It didn't seem to make sense to offer both at the same time in our opinion. The death of the AL 2000 paves the way for the AL 2500. The only really noticeable difference between the two models is that the AL 2500 has full body, neck and headstock binding while the AL 2000 only had binding around the body and neck.
