    First off...it's awesome. This is my first Agile and I'm definitely impressed with the quality. The finish looks great, the neck feels great, the fretboard looks and plays very smooth, and the all mahogany construction feels very solid and sounds very good.

    Even though it looks great as it is I'm definitely planning on refinishing it in the near future. One of my best excuses for doing this being that I get to reshape the less-than-desireable headstock. I don't really have any set idea as to what kind of finish I want to give it but I'm planning on giving the body a 45 degree bevel all the way around so it would probably be cool to paint the bevels. I was thinking something like black with green bevels. But if the mahogany underneath the paint looks good I may want to just leave it natural. Anyway if you have any cool finish ideas shoot 'em by me!

    And now on to the main event!

    great looking guitar, I almost bought one of them, but im not a guitar tech and I don't know how I would fix the headstock.

    I think this guitar would look really good in flat black, or maybe a darker chameleon color too. Or, if you do a bevel, flat black and make the bevel red. In my opinion that would look badass.

    The headstock is ugly, but those knobs are horrid!

    I think that is the best looking colour and it looks better in your pics then it did on the Rondo site. Congrats.

    Flat black with red bevels would look badass. I'm going to have to give that some consideration.

    Keeping it white with natural mahogany bevels could look pretty classy...

    The lower horn and the headstock look so much like cartoon bell-ends, I cannot take those guitars seriously.

    White Explorer shapes rule they really are a modern day classic congrats man it looks cool and I don't think the headstocks that bad really all it would take is 5 mins with a saw + sander and a repaint.
