So since there seems to be little as far as reviews I thought it may be helpful to put one up. A little history. I am not a "bassist", I started playing bass 10/15 years ago as I got a gig as "Gene" in a KISS trib. I don't consider myself a great bassist, I am certainly a far better guitarist. However I love to play bass and my main gig for the last 7 years or so has been bass in a popular local cover band gigging around 100 shows a year. So "real" bassists can take my review with a grain of salt. I got the bass as a gift from the wife. I wanted it because IMO it looked cool. It came with a case. I have a Schecter Stiletto Custom, a Gene Simmons Punisher, and a Fender P/J. Compared to these basses it has a way more old school, woody sound. I like it. Maybe it is the fact that all my other basses are active but this thing sounds really different...not better or worse really but it certainly has more GRUNT as a description. I was afraid that the bass would feedback at show volume but I cranked it up and it is fine. The setup out of the box was adequate and I won't be tweaking it until I get a few gigs in. It for sure needs some NUT work once it settles. Strings seem ok so I will use them until they die. Bad points are few. One thing is that it has a black headstock but the Rondo site shows white...I hate it but not worth sending it back over. The worst part is the black is badly applied over the white with some kind of mask that was done pretty sloppily. There is also one small area on the binding that looks like someone slipped with the sanding belt, but honestly I could have done it...didn't notice it at first but you know how that is. The biggest problem is that the bridge doesn't seat right on the posts...it tilts forward!? Doesn't seem to make much difference in sound or playability but we will see. I may be changing that. That's all for now. Will post a little more after a couple gigs are under its belt. Hope your wife is as good as mine.
