There are a couple Agile offerings too. I would consider those too as a mod platform.

I'm a sucker for a copper Goldtop. I thought I'd bought one once from Agile. But instead of looking like the picture, she turned out to be Ol' Snotty. :oD

She was such a great player that I kept her. So I gutted her and put in some Lollar Vintage T's.

In fact, snotty has the old lawsuit headstock. 2004?

I still have an ‘04 Agile AL3000P. I have a pair of HB-sized P90-ish pickups from Aaron installed. It does those tones pretty darn well.

My mind is running with thoughts on this.

I could build my P90 instrument. I don’t mind it being a bolt-neck.

I’m inclined to do that because I could get the neck profile I want. Zackly.

I'm not sure of the year but '04 is pretty close.

I just looked through my gear pics and the first pic of Snotty is July 2014. 14 years...Wow! My only older guitar is Rosie (Carvin Bolt) at 17 years.

It wasn’t long after ‘04 that Gibson pressured them into changing the headstock.

Before ‘04 they bodies didn’t have the neutered horn.

I had a pre-neutered 3000 but didn't bond with it.

That wrap-around goldtop is very cool, although functionally, I'd always prefer a TOM and stoptail...

A TOM bridge often does intonate better than a wrap-tail bar, but done right, the plain bar bridge just has That Magical Tone like some of the LP Juniors are famous for.

Kinda like a Tele with regular brass saddles. Not the intonated ones.

"I still have an opening in the herd for just such a guitar.

If the right one of these pops up at the right price this year, it's mine."

More changes.

The Gold Foils are nice, but I wanted more bite from the bridge pickup. So I swapped out the bridge Gold Foil for a neck Dream 180.

That's more like it!

I'm in the process of balancing out the pickups so the middle switch position is a nice balance of the two. The neck Gold Foil is really low output. If I can't get there I will put the bridge Gold Foil in the neck position.

Eric, you're just never done tinkering, are you?

I've got a couple/three guitars that need to nuts cut, and some wiring and pickup changes to get them up to playability again, and I find it hard to have the energy - or the time... guess I spend too much of it on here!

I have projects queued up. Sometimes I take my lunch break and do one. Like today. I painted a headstock.

And hung the porch swing.

I can do a lot in an hour.
