Top of the line MULTI-SCALE!
The multi-scale provides the advantage of having a longer scale length for the lower strings and a shorter scale length for the higher strings. When bass strings have a longer scale, you can achieve a snappier, brighter, and clearer tone. When the treble strings have a shorter scale they produce an inherently warmer, mellower tone. This makes for a tonally balanced instrument. Straight scale instruments tend to suffer from drawbacks: extended scale instruments' high notes can sound shrill and piercing and short scale instruments' low notes can sound muddy. The multi-scale system allows for a "bost of both worlds" approach. And you get a free hardshell case with it! Have fun!
To have a guitar built just for you, you will make 2 separate payments. The first payment will be a deposit and is what is shown in the shopping cart. To determine the cost of the entire deposit, simply select the features you want. Then hit the button “Add to Cart”. The price of your deposit for your instrument will be shown in the cart. This amount is the deposit only. Once your custom guitar has been built and is ready to ship, you will be notified. At that time you would make one additional final payment of exactly $475 (regardless of what custom options you choose).

Note that custom orders cannot be canceled or refunded once production begins.
A note about pickups: If you happen to choose a combination of active and passive pickups. The passive pickups will be much lower in volume than the active ones and the passive may be hard to hear when both active and passive are engaged at the same time.
Ordering a custom guitar can be stressful and I'm sure you understand this, as I'm sure you get a lot of customers fretting over their order, and requesting changes late in the process. I was one of those customers. I made a rather considerable change request near the dead-line and Theresa went the extra mile, talked with the guys at the factory (Korea?) and you made it happen... and happen it did! This guitar is impeccable in every way, and I have VERY high standards. Every centimeter of this guitar is high-quality, even the setup is perfect, and I ordered a non-standard tuning! I own Prosonic Studios, I've written 6 chord books, I've created the largest database of drum beats and chord progressions, I've also just released a new cutting-edge 3D guitar simulator (Prosonic Sessions) that contains all the chords & scales and shows where they're played in the 3D guitar in real-time. It even contains thousands of high quality chord progressions and melodic patterns. This software will make paper chord/scales books extinct. Anyhow, I'll be doing a lot of videos for this software and I'll be featuring this guitar in them and I assure you, I'll have nothing but the very best to say about Rondo and Agile Guitars so your attention to detail and excellence is going to pay dividends into the future... I can't thank you enough for creating this exceptional instrument for me.
Thank you very much! Sincerely, Tony Pappas
Hello to those at rondomusic, approximately six months ago I ordered a semi-custom Agile pendulum pro 82730 from your website. I would just like to say that I have received the guitar and I was immediately blown away by the guitar's beautiful satin "black flame" finish and the incredible build quality of the guitar. The Cepheus passive bar pickups sound surprisingly great with a nice gritty and dynamic character, the frets are all perfectly done with absolutely no roughness or protruding edges, the finish is flawless and silky smooth... I could go on. The actual layout of everything to how the neck and frets are positioned in the body is spot on for balance and playability, the neck pickup sitting up close to the 24th fret like I believe it should be... beautiful. The guitar's playability, looks, and sound manage to exceed my expectations. Your is company is of the only ones that offered the specification options that I wanted, and let alone at such a great value. I am very happy with my order/purchase and will definitely be spreading good word about Rondo and Agile pendulums specifically. To all those involved,
I had to let you know how very disappointed I am in my HALO custom guitar. I know, you don't have anything to do with HALO guitars. But I thought you might like to know that WELL over a year ago I ordered the same guitar from them that I ordered from you, the only real differences are the color and scale length. I have yet to receive the HALO guitar. A few months ago I got sick of waiting for a comfortable 7 string (yes I'm that weirdo who likes to sit and play Rhodes v's), and placed the same order with you. Low and behold, in a third of the time and at half of the price, you sent me the guitar that has immediately become my favorite guitar to play. Not just because I finally have a comfortable 7 string, but because it seems like you guys over there understand why people would prefer not to have frets overhanging the neck and slicing up the users hands. Also, even though I put my custom pickups in and use my somewhat odd string gauges, it should be noted that my guitar arrived not just in tune, but also intonated and with the action perfectly balanced.
I'm sorry for the diatribe, but I had to let you know. Now that I've had some time with my new Agile guitar, I feel safe in saying that it is my very best guitar. I have owned a few custom jobs, and a couple of mildly prestigious guitars, and yet the one I paid the least for is without question the very best that I have EVER played.
I started playing when I was twelve, I turn thirty this year.
And after I hit send, I will have sent one email gushing over any kind of product in my whole life.
I just wanted to say thanks.
But I really wanted you and your shop to know that I really mean it.
I really hope you guys can keep this up forever. It's so nice to finally know exactly where to look when I need a new guitar.
