Douglas Guitar from Rondo Music – Getting a Good Deal Buying Douglas Electric Guitars

I got a really cool one from them the other day, a Douglas Hawker, which had three humbuckers and a nice transparent red finish. It just plays and feels really good.  I love my Rondo Guitar.

They have a lot of flying V style axes as well as LP and Tele Style instruments.

Here are some of their flying V shaped guitar series:

The Douglas Halo is an explorer shaped guitar

The flying V models have several different names such as Octanis, Draco, WH1, SIV 45, and Fulcrum.    Not bad considering that some of them have Floyd Rose trem units.

The Douglas Zeke is their SG shaped guitar

The Douglas Spad and WRL 590 are two contemporary designs that have sleeker necks

The Douglas Shadow is their LP style line

Douglas Guitars have two lines of tele style guitars, the WF and TL. 

They also have the short scale Perago Traveler

That is it, short and sweet.  Like the Rondo Douglas Guitars a lot.

bought a douglas shadow. damaged in shipping from cheap box, pickups don’t work, jack broken, buzzing neck. other than that it’s terrific…for hanging on the wall, but not playing.

Sounds like shipping damage, Mine arrived just fine, have had it one year and is starting to get that “broken in” feel on the neck…

Rondomusic is very good at exchanges and returns. Every guitar is shipped with an invoice that states if there is a problem with the shipment, call or email them immediately!

Been playing for 30 + yrs. I am privledged enough to own fenders, gibsons, and gretsch guitars. In my heart I always knew the was a cheap guitar out the as good as the big name’s. My son ordered a SX les paul copy a couple years ago. The only thing I found wrong was some binding glue on the body. No big deal. I was impressed with the quality. I ordered a Douglas WRL 590 floyd na. At first, i liked it but played it little
due to tuning/ action issues. Really good workmanship on body, good looks, neck through body mahogany, grovers, floyd rose, what a deal!! but the issues! Then it dawned on me. Add a additional spring to the trem. Problem solved. This axe is a hoot to play! I highly recommend this guitar!!!

I now have several Rondo guitars Douglas and SX, SX resonator
and they all play easy and sound great. I find they are made great
with no flaws. Really enjoy them. I’m am not a pro.

I retired to a full time hobby repairing, rebuilding, restoring & modifying affordable electric guitars. Own a Douglas Spad and another setneck natural, a Strat like model with a Floyd Rose. Used or new ALL guitars need some attention after being shipped or brought home from wherever. I’ve found the Douglas models to be high value for the buck; they are outstanding. Mine have required very little attention at all. Nice to know where they come from (Rondo) – I suspected they were a bargain line from Ed Roman Guitars, they are simply that nice.

I am a pro studio musician, live and work in Nashville where Everybody plays guitar! I own over 20 guitars and no telling how many I’ve bought and sold. I recently started hearing about SX Guitars. I’m a hard nose Tele man and wanted a good back up for road dates etc. I bought the SX Furman for $89.00. I have been blown away ever since getting it out of the box. Can’t put it down! I really have expected to pay way more for a guitar like this. I changed the strings and that was it. I would dare anyone to tell me which guitar I’m playing without looking! I am looking forward to buying a few more very soon.

Rondo Music is an outstanding organization that sells quality merchandise and is successful because of their quality service. This is a family owned business that treats their customers as they would like to be treated. They have the sole U.S. distribution rights to outstanding VALUE Asian imports and they deal only with high quality Asian instrument manufacturers. IMO you will not find a better combination/selection of quality guitars/music accessories plus exceptional customer service than from this fine organization. I have been purchasing instruments and supplies from them for many years and the purchased items have ALWAYS exceded my expectations. I am not an employee of this fine organization, but I would definitely recommend this company and any their fine products to anyone without hesitation.
If you are shopping for guitars (particularly) by the name on the peg head then that is your business. If you are shopping for TOP VALUE instruments for your hard earned money spent then Rondo Music is the place to go.

Thank you!

Jim
