New here but thought I'd share this.Just bought a Rondo SX Callisto LP a month ago for a unreal price of $99us.Wanted a little bomb around better to take around to jams and stuff.To my surprise this thing is pretty good all around.so I did some usual mods to get it right
1.installed a Guitar fetish tom bridge
2.replaced the cheapo pickup switch
3.re-cut the nut(LOL)
4.replcaed the pup's with SD's
5.replaced the pots and tone caps
and this guit rocks!!I think it's worth quite a bit more with these standard upgrades total moneies spent guitar included $220.Maybe I got lucky on this guitar,but if you get a bad one you have a 30 day return,so I don't think you can't go wrong.
cheers,slagg..:band:

Yup, Those inexpensive guitars over at Rondo are actually much better than you would ever expect. I just picked up an SX Deimos Gold Top. Another rediculous price, $139 plus shipping. Out of the box it was pretty nice. A few changes, like strings and a set up made it a real keeper. A black pick guard and switch plate finished the look. This is my second Rondo guitar and both have been fine instruments. Glad to hear that you like yours too.
