I’ve not played guitar since before Amy passed away a year and a half ago, and before that I had to sell my Les Paul Studio, MiM Strat, and Peterson strobe tuner when we got into a financial bind. After she passed away, I still had my SRV Signature Strat, but didn’t feel like taking it out of its case.
A week ago, that finally changed. I’m still paying things off, but am making progress and figured it was time to treat myself to another guitar, as I’d really missed my LP Studio. However, I’m too much of a penny-pincher to go down to Guitar Center and throw $1100 at the cashier.
An Agile AL-2000 from Rondo Music has been on my “Eventually..” list for a while now, and while poking around Rondo’s site found that the Douglas Shadow Pro Gold was even cheaper than the Agile. I figured “Good enough for getting my calluses built back up if nothing else..” So, $144 and a week later…
Now I just need to find a good guitar tech here in Houston and get a proper setup job done. I’ve contacted Ron Pace, but haven’t heard back from him yet.
