Occasionally while perusing the different posts I've seen some from someone with a Rondo Music Strat clone. Could someone say something about the quality of this company's products?? Their prices are so ridiculously low I have mostly ignored them. I'm wanting a jazz box and a friend suggested I look closer at some of their products. I'm on disability and have a very, very limited income, but what income I do have goes entirely to music. Any information or comments would be most appreciated. If I shouldn't start a non-Washburn thread here, I apologize and please ignore this.

Hey Thanks for the head's up. That's what I suspected since I had never even heard of them until about a week ago when a friend mentioned them. The prices on their web page are really ridiculously low. Guess I'll be looking at Ibanez hollow bodies.

Thanks again.

You could probably get a HB15 for less than $375 new.

Everything is relative.  If you only have $150 then they have a decent $150 guitar, if you have more to spend then other places have better. Depends on whether you're in it for the joy of playing, or the joy of bragging!

Pike thanks that's the middle of my price range ($350-450) and they sure look nice. Does anyone here have any experience the HB15. That may be what I'm looking for.
