    I'm going to be the only dissenter- not due to the guitar itself or its pedigree, but I never buy a guitar I haven't played first. Usually along with many others on the same day.

    It can be the greatest guitar in the world, but it just doesn't fit your hands, style, whatever. Unless you're buying it for an investment or something (obviously not the case here).

    cheers for the replies :D
    aye, most of the reviews/discussion i've read about Agile are from the sevenstring forums - but that being said, it's all positive.
    i am a bit hesitant at not being able to play the guitar myself before buying, but I have seen it played in a few youtube clips (albeit the 7-string version) and it seems to be exactly what i'm after.
    all in all I am pretty darn sold on it. i'll give it a day or 2 for the initial 'ooooh!!' to die off then if i'm still into it, I'll buy one.

    People over on the Andy Sneap forum seem to like them too, not forgetting that Jeff Loomis use to play one so the NM guys go gaga over them too.

    Jeff Loomis played one? Well that's good enough for me, haha.
    Either way, I put in an order last night. Pretty excited really. Bit of a blind purchase, so we'll see how it goes :D
    Apparently FedEx ship it in 2-5 days...do guitars take long to clear customs? And would I have to pay any duties?
    Any of you guys ordered (surely LT has from ESP?) from o/s before?

    No, actually I got mine from Adelaide from the local distributor, but Stu got a lot of stuff in from OS in the past, I believe.

    Are they Japanese?

    Reason I ask is because it suspiciously sounds like Comparison.

    They mistakingly named the Mitsubishi Starion it was meant to be Stallion.

    sweet thanks man :) with a little more internet snooping i found that the 6505's are compatible with the 5150's and the 6505+ is compatible with the 5150 mk2 :)

    Thanks for the help

    Cheers
