Amplesound electric guitars - which do you prefer?

Which Amplesound guitars you prefer the most? What genre, what use and why? There is a lot of discussion about AGT vs AGM, but I haven't found anything about AGT vs AGF vs AGG vs AGP vs AME.

I like their acoustic guitar VI's. However, I bought the AGP also and I found the tuning to be horrible, especially on the lower strings. It's not correctable via a cent offset per sample (which you can do, to AmpleSound's credit). But, rather, it is due to notes having a pitch envelope (the pitch of the sample changes markedly from attack to decay) and to high string inharmonicity (higher partials are progressively sharper than they are on most instruments). I think that the root of the problem is the strings that they chose. The AGP II update did not fix the issue, iirc. It is so bad (to me; some others may not care about or even notice tuning issues) that I deleted it from my hard drive.

I'm not trying to trash the company - I do like AGM a lot, and AGT is nice also (despite some smaller tuning issues).

Interesting thing about tuning, I have seen a lot of complaints from Amplesound users on different forums. They say that it has been fixed in updates, but still there is some kind of problem. Right now I'm demoing AGG and AME, and in AGG I have found that muted notes in the lowest register with low velocity are a lot higher than sustained notes. I was wondering if this is maybe typical problem for muted notes on guitar?

But excluding this both AGG and AME are great guitars, altough AGG looks more versatile (more articulations and better sound on single guitar popish/rockish lines)

And I love "double" trick.
