I know I know, I swore I'd never step foot back in that place after they lied on the phone about the CV's, but I needed strings so.... anyway picked up a neat looking TSB Paul and was checking it out, looked pretty neat so I took it over to the amps, (Marshall MG, sounded very blegh!) Anyway it was an interesting feeling, nothing like a Strat and I guess the fretboard radius is around 12 or so because it felt really weird. Also the volume knob was jammed down so deep into the guitar you couldn't turn it more then 1/4 turn, I didn't want to mess with it anymore because I thought the knob might dig into the finish. It looked nice though, polished up and no scratches. Not sure if they just unboxed it because usually guitars don't seem to look quite that new and shiny at GC. I still think I'm gonna go with an Agile but I'm still not 100% sure, other then the volume knob issue I didn't really see anything wrong with it but I was in a hurry and didn't really put it through all the paces. Just checked it over, played a bit and checked intonation, which was pretty spot on. Interesting the tag said $479. and it didn't seem to be on sale, that seemed to be it's normal price, curious why Sweetwater has the same guitar for $549. I thought all the companies pretty much had the same prices on the same guitars. anyway went to the counter to buy some Fender Bullets and wouldn't you know? That's the one set of strings they were out of, had been since last month the guy said. Typical of my luck, lol. He kept trying to sell me picks and joking around that did I have a guitar to put the strings on. I know he was joking but at the same time I felt like, "just ring up the damn strings man." I hate how they try and be cute whenever I bring my girl with me. Anyway picked up some Ernie Ball Hybrids, curious to see how they do. Hopefully it doesn't cause any undue stress on my guitar necks being the hybrids, though I like the idea of a fatter low end string. All in all though after playing Strats for years and never touching a Paul in that time I was surprised how weird it felt. I think I could get used to it but it'll take some time. They're just not very comfortable. With my back being kinda messed up though I think it might come down to which is the lighter guitar, the Epiphone or the Agile. I think the Agiles are nicer but I know they're 10lb guitars, if the Epiphone is closer to the Strat weight I'm used to (between 5-7lbs?) I'll probably go with that and just upgrade the pickups and bridge. Another interesting GC experience, lol. I can't believe out of a friggin WALL of strings, the one brand of strings I wanted was the ones they're out of, lol. Oh yeah, they had a B-52 half stack on sale for like $500. bucks, seemed like a cool price for a half stack, but I didn't get to play it so who knows how it sounds, looked neat though. I didn't like the Marshall MG at all. Very harsh and digital sounding imo.
