Default Rondo Music?

So I bought a guitar from this website called Rondo Music. Inexpensive guitars, with competitive quality. I heard some of their guitars compete with very expensive versions.

I bought an SX, which is one of their low-end guitars. Do any of you guys have experience with this place?

Maybe their higher end ones. I have never played one of the lower end ones but from what I have heard they are similar to squier.

If so thats great because I own a squier strat and with some work it is a great playing guitar. What one did you purchase?

You can order a lot of guitars from China by almost any name. Quality is the same independing on the brand. All guitars below $300 are built from cheap materials in a couple of hours. Not good.

I suggest gettting one with natural finish. Mine had amazing woods and the neck is one of my favorites. I will post a picture soon. Try the nashville tele copy they make.

I remember a poster from a long time ago who bought a few Rondo guitars. Said his $100 strat ripoff was a blast to play. I seem to remember him saying something like 'it's not made in USA Fender quality but it's better than a Squier'. For $100, giddy the hell up.

The Agile 3000 is what they are known for. I really think I may get one. My Sx p90 strat is amazing. Even stock it was good, but with 60 bucks of tuners/nut/fretjob/bridge/block it plays as well as any fender. The thing is you have to know a little about setups and maintanance if you want it to play well.

And before someone says you clearly are defending your purchase and just cant afford a fender....I have owned 2 Fenders. One usa one mim classic, and the quality is right up their.
