    Looks cool. Kind of their answer to the LP100, although there are many differences...binding, thickness etc.

    I would suggest the GFS Fat PAT's or Classic 2's...I have used both and they are excellent...the classic 2's are lower output than the fat PATs

    Just watch out that you don't wander off too far.

    The question is, does an LP-100 really require an answer? :hmm:

    I wouldn't bother.

    Spend a few dollars more and get an Agile 2000......set neck FTW (and there's no telling if that guitar is even going to be playable.)

    Back on this SX Castillo bolt on model...

    Hey, if someone wants to flush their money down the toilet...send it to me instead! :D

    I'll make good use of it, I promise! :thumb:

    I see that everyone has already posted what was my first thought, that surely an AL2000 would be the way to go. $225 for this: Agile AL-2000 Black Flame at RondoMusic.com

    If the OP can't afford anything more than the bolt on LP, would they be better off with something like this: SX Callisto JR Nat at RondoMusic.com, which is an LP JR copy, but at least has a set neck. And, they could buy a better LP later on when they have more money.

    In seeing how much an AL2000 costs, I found this. My gosh, this is cheap for an LP copy! Douglas Shadow Pink at RondoMusic.com Not that I'm suggesting that anyone should buy it.
