Kurt: Wanted to drop you a quick note of thanks for getting my new Agile 3100 MN in Oceanburst out and safely here. These accolades are probably getting like a broken record, but even after having bought and owned several different styles of your guitars over the past 10yrs. or so, This guitar with flamed maple cap, triple bound headstock and body top, and maple fingerboard is the cat's meow! Best fretwork I have seen on any guitar, save a Gibson custom shop example in the $3000 range. I am going to use the push pull pots to create a out of phase selection for each of the two pickups, as opposed to the coil splitting they currently perform. The pickups themselves sound really good, clear and smooth with nice harmonics. All the electronics were done with precision and the wiring is neatly cut and tied back. The overall setup was just perfect with the D'Addario 10 roundwound strings; played for nearly two hours this afternoon before I realized how long it had been. The sustain on this guitar is a big reason I wanted to get back into a true full sized(thickness)LP. This series LP is truly a hidden gem in value and I am certain it would hold it's own when compared to the genuine article. While ESP/LTD and Epi can make some very nice guitars, none of them represents the value for your money like this Agile 3100. Absolutely tickled and very happy with having made this choice for a new LP-style guitar.
Kind Regards, Chris Whitehead
Hi Kurt, I have purchased a few guitars from you and have sent a few customers your way because I like your product and service. Recently I advised a friend (Fred Lennon) who was hell bent on a Les Paul to check out your stuff. I told him to make sure to get one with a maple cap which he did. You really took great care helping him and he has a permanent smile on his face and feels all his expectations were far and away exceeded with the purchase of the AL 3100M. His was light and resonant and played like a dream. Your ear must be tuned to the desires of your customers and it's nice to see how quickly you develop different product to fit their specific needs. You've got a good name out here, a lot of very happy customers and a positive buzz on the web. I'm sure it's because of your hard work, focus on fit and finish and ever evolving models which is the secret to Rondo's success. Congrats on another job well done!
Hi! My new Agile3100M has been in my hands two days now. It arrived with no injuries whatsoever. In fact, I cant find even the slightest little defect in the instrument at all. I love the way it looks, feels and sings and I just don't think I could have made a wiser choice. Thanks so much for your part in providing the opportunity for me to own it. Puts epiphones to shame and is a better instrument overall, in my humble opinion, than the 1980 les paul custom Gibson it replaces. Great work, guys, good luck in the future.

Rondo, I've been playing guitar now for 50 years and have owned a lot of guitars in that time. I've been playing a Fender Special Edition Tele HH now for about 5 years and wanted to try a Les Paul style guitar. I have never been fond of the LP style guitars in the past but felt that I probably never gave them a fair try. Not knowing whether or not I could 'bond' with a LP style guitar, I really couldn't see spending a lot of money to try one. I did my research, read a lot of reviews/comments on guitar forums and found Rondo Music/Agile.
I am simply amazed by my new guitar. Came to me set up very well and I only had to do minor 'tweeking to suit' to make this guitar play exactly the way I wanted it to. Beautiful resonance and sustain. I looked this guitar over CLOSELY with a very critical eye and can find no faults. When I purchased the guitar I thought that perhaps I might have to change the pickups, which I've done on a lot of my guitars but NO, the stock pickups in this axe will stay! . That is a first for me!
I am so impressed that I'm confident that I will be talking to you about a 'custom made' guitar in the near future!
Thank you so much for the great product and excellent customer service!
Kurt, I have been playing guitar since 1972, have owned quite a few during those years, and I currently own 15. I've had one LP which I never could quite bond with but I believe this Agile is definitely a keeper. I've never had an electric guitar that was so easy to set up to my picky spec's (I raised the action slightly and adjusted the pickup height... everything else was spot on!). BTW, this is my second Rondo purchase... I have an Agile TC as well. Thanks for offering awesome guitars at great prices!

Hello Kurt. Just got my Agile guitar today. All I can say is wow. I've been playing for over 40 years now and I have had all kinds of name brand guitars, but never have I had a beauty like this one. It came perfectly set up in MHOP. Action is perfect for me. The workmanship is flawless. From the machine heads to the bridge, fret work, everything. The finish is excellent and I should know because I am a finisher, re-finisher of fine furniture and cabinetry. The tones of the pickups are incredible on all settings. Plays like butter. This will probably make the Gibson Les Paul owner upset but I truly believe it is as good and maybe even a cut above. I still own my Gibson SG that I bought in the sixties and have played many Gibson Les Pauls over the years. I had a good friend of mine come over to take a look and to play it. He asked me what I paid for it and his jaw dropped. Thank You so much and thanks to all the other Agile owners for all their reviews of your guitars. I am glad I went with Agile. The guitar case is perfect also. Not a flaw. Many thanks for a wonderful guitar.

This guitar looks even better than your website photos, gorgeous in an understated way.
I plugged it into a Bugera V5 tube amp, one that does not like my Gibson LP Studio very much. The amp tends to make humbuckers sound overly dark. However, the Agile has plenty of treble through that amp. I was going to get an EQ pedal to brighten the signal up. However, I may just sell the Gibson after hearing how the Agile does, both with the tube amp and a solid state one.
I can't say enough about your great service, and the value for the dollar in the Agile, SX and Douglas products you sell. Also, you provide tremendous variety of choices for us lefties, in contrast with the competition.

Hi, I don't usually leave testimonials for products, but I had to write and let you know how pleased I am with my new Agile. I have been playing guitar for over 40 years and have never come across such value for the money. I was a little skeptical of the comments I had read, but decided to bite the bullet and place an order. Man am I glad I did. I have to say I have seen nicer guitars but, those instruments were at a minimum six times the price. I cant think of anything I have purchased in the past that I felt was as good a value as this guitar.
Out of the box setup was very good, better than most I have seen. Just a few tweaks for my preferences and voila, perfect. The pickups are great, ebony neck is smooth and fast and the finish is very nice. I have shown it to several musicians and they were very impressed, when I told them the price, they didn't believe me. I had to show them the invoice to convince them.
Rondo Music will be the first and probably the only place I'll look for future instruments. Thanks for an exceptional guitar for an exceptionally low price.
