    No pickup selector, switch, toggle ?

    I think I remember those using one of the knobs as a rotary selector switch. Not sure what the configuration is.

    Yeah, one of the knobs on these is normally a 5 way switch.

    Thanks. Yup. It has a 5 way rotary switch stock. I don’t know what the five options are but will ask around for more information. Need production year from serial number too. Supposed to be somewhere in 2010’s Korea. Probably will send a message to Kurt at Rondo.

    There's a nice triple HHH Epi at my local GC for a decent price.

    Looks good, I've often thought about adding a middle pickup to one of my lp's.

    That’s your best bet. I don’t think there is any rhyme or reason to the serial numbers, but Kurt can look it up for you.

    OK, so no fast switching for a solo.
    Five positions must be like on a Strat:
    1- Bridge
    2- Bridge + middle
    3- Middle
    4- Middle + neck
    5- Neck

    She finally arrived today. It’s my second Agile guitar and I am hooked. These have to provide the best bang for the buck. This guitar is a thing of beauty. Kurt from Rondo said it was from 2016 and was very helpful with information based on the serial number. I can’t believe the quality for the $. Can’t wait to have some time to play it!

    I should have included his introduction to that list in my post:

    “same setup as a strat so from up to down the 5 positions would be”.

    That's interesting. I always assumed it was three volumes and a tone.

    Got to play it last night. A sustain and tone monster. A couple of sharp fret ends I’ll need to address. Will oil the fretboard and install some new strings and set up to my preferences. One issue with the three H top. The middle pup gets in the way of picking as too high. Will lower a little and see if it’s better. Anyone have this experience with the middle H getting in the way?
