Classic styling at a great low price!
I recently purchased a SX Ursa II VTG jazz bass from Rondo. I am writing to let you know how happy I am with this instrument. This is the third instrument I have bought from you. The first was a banjitar, the second was a fretless Douglas viola bass.
I have played guitars and basses for over 45 years. My first bass was a 1975 Fender P-bass I bought new back in the day. At the time, I worked part-time after school in a music store. The store had a 1975 Fender Jazz bass that I really wanted, but someone bought it before I had saved enough for it. Believe me, I longed for that bass and, when it was sold, I mourned! The SX bass I bought from you feels exactly like that one I remember from so long ago.
I bought some flatwounds to put on it and, while I was in the music store, I compared the SX to a Squire that sold at the same price point. There was no comparison at all. The Squire felt cheesy and cheap. I tried a Mexican Fender that also didnít measure up. As far as the feel, playability, weight, balance, and tone, it took a $1900 US Fender to compare. Do you think Iím happy? Hell, yes!
Thanks for offering such good quality for our money. I sing your praises. I hope your supply chain issues get ironed out soon and wish you good fortune in the future.
