Just wanted to drop you an email to say what a pleasure it's been dealing with Rondo.
I received my Agile 830 yesterday, bang on schedule, and it's a beautiful thing. Amazing value (even including shipping) for a very well crafted instrument. I was a little reticent about the whole process. I've shopped in the US before online but never for high priced and frankly fragile item such as an guitar. However the tireless patient responses to my endless ludicrous questions from Theresa have made the whole process effortless. There was a slight issue with damage to the case but, this was dealt with maturely and professionally and as such is no issue at all (i can guarantee other retailers would not have exhibited the exceptional customer service levels I've experienced). So, would I recommend Rondo. Absolutely. What's not to like. Exceptional value for money instruments (the Cepheus passive pick ups are almost the biggest surprise. I confess I was expecting to hate them being an ardent Bareknuckle supporter, however they are really good for a stock set), with really very very high quality finishing for an instrument in this price point (frankly for an instrument in a price point double this). Combine that with brilliant customer service and a smooth, streamlined deliver service using a proper, established and responsible international courier service and you have a complete package. Needless to say, I will, without hesitation be coming back to Rondo for future guitar needs (I've got my eyes on a P90 loaded LP style and a baritone T style in the not to distant future). Thanks again and keep up the excellent work and brilliant instruments.
Hi Kurt. I just received my guitar (& case) yesterday (order 218717) & I wanted to thank you, first of all. It's rare to come across companies these days that do such diligent work. The processing/shipping time was impressive & much appreciated. You don't know how much it means to me when I order something I'm anticipating so badly & it's processed & shipped out the same afternoon I placed the order. Great communication as well!
As for the Septor Elite, I'm practically speechless. I was expecting it to be nice but wow, it floored me. The price I paid, well I feel like I practically stole it considering what I got in return. I've played and owned multi-thousand dollar guitars of all shapes, sizes, & string configurations over my 15+ years of playing so I recognize & appreciate quality when I see it. Let me be the first to say, my Septor Elite was made in S Korea & I'm damn proud of it! The build specs on this thing are nothing short of incredible & rival most American made guitars I've played. It's absolutely gorgeous, just STUNNING, SEXY! The materials, the craftsmanship, the level of expertise that went into making this guitar....man I just couldn't be happier.
I'm glad I took a chance on Agile & RondoMusic. I didn't know much about either but now I feel like I know all I need to know. Amazing products, service, & it didn't break my bank. What else could anyone ask for? You have a new customer for life in me. Anyone I know that's looking for a new guitar, I'm going to recommend Rondo & Agile first! If they don't believe me, they will after they play my guitar.
P.S......I'd like my feedback to be seen by as many people as possible, especially those that are considering purchasing one of your guitars. So, please post this on your customer comments section so people know the truth! Besides, you could use some more "current" reviews on your site :) Thanks again, you haven't heard the last from me.
Overall Impression: I'm pretty picky when it comes to guitars. I've been playing guitar for 9 years now, and all my other guitars are super customized to my preferences. This is the first guitar that I've played that I really wouldn't change much on. For the price, it's a steal. I've played guitars nearly double its price tag that don't compete. I never thought I would get an 8 string. I've always been interested in 7's but the idea of an 8 string was just preposterous to me... Until I played a Schecter Blackjack 8 in a guitar store one day. I had to choose between this guitar and the Blackjack and I'm very pleased with my purchase. This is the best gamble I've ever made, I've never played this guitar or an Agile before purchasing it, but after reading amazing reviews on Agiles from the people of ss.org I couldn't resist. If you're thinking about expanding your range to an 8 string (please don't just do it for chugging the low F# that's why we have Baritone 7's... I know its fun but come on guys) then Agile is definitely a great option, unless you can afford Custom luther brands, in which case look into Siggery, Ran, Strandberg, Mayones, Blackmachine (Although I don't think they're making anymore), a Bernie Rico Jr or any of those guitars that my budget won't let me own... but I want. Thanks for reading my review I know it was quite long but hopefully you got something out of it.

Question: What is the difference between the Septor Pro and the Septor Elite?
Answer: The Septor Pro has the Cepheus TOM bridge with graphite saddles and staggered string-through holes for improved intonation. The Septor Elite has the Cepheus high mass extended range fixed bridge, which offers the saddle for the widest range of tunings and non-standard string gauges. Both bridges are excellent and offer ultra-fine tuning. Choosing which bridge is for you is simply a matter of preference.
Question: Supposing I want to switch my Seymour Duncan Blackout Phase II Pickups with EMG 808 Pickups. Will this work?
