    I've been looking at some Rondo Basses at their website, and they look pretty nice.

    Does Rondo make quality basses? Or am I just falling in love with eye candy? :ninja:

    Thanks!

  3. I've owned 2 SX basses. Honestly it is sometimes a "hit or miss" thing to go with one if you haven't played it first. Like any company that mass produces basses, their is going to be lemons. The two I owned were solidly built and played really nicely. I could get low action on it and it all held together solidly. The electronics aren't the best, but what can you expect from a bass at such a low price? If you can, go to Rondo Music and try them out to see if you like them and it is also a much safer way to get a good one.

    Well mine came in UPS yesterday. Not to bad for a $110.00 bass. I am spoiled though with my other basses. I modified the bass to accept .130 E string. I have not plugged it in yet, though. I am looking forward to seeing how it responds through my rig.
