Just a quick question to anyone that's bought something from Rondomusic via pre-order before.

I paid for the second half of my Intrepid yesterday via credit card through my PayPal account. Do I recieve anything from Rondo saything that I did or do I just 'trust' that my order was processed?

I don't think you'll get anything until monday. I haven't heard from him since friday, so I'm thinking he probably doesn't do business in the weekends. Clever man.

I had some trouble with my card too, damn bank ....ing it up as usual.

"Custom order guitars start at $500. In general, you can assume minor modifications to existing models will add 50% to the price of the item. For example, ordering a custom AL-3000 and changing just one attribute from the standard model, say the color, would cust approximatly $575"


So this is stated at the top of the custom order form and it confuses me a bit. If modifications such as a color change cost 50% of the original price, wouldn't it amount to an extra 250 as opposed to 75?

Maybe I'm missing something.

Anyone recently order a custom since it went up and have an idea of how much the mods to the original model actually cost?

No, because an AL-3000 cost $380. So 50% of that is 190. 380+190=570. The $500 is to say that no matter what the custom is, the minimum would be $500. So if you got one of those $99 jobs and customized it, you're not getting out for less than $500. But, I think you're right. If a guitar costs $500, and you change the paint, you're looking at $750.

Just to clarify this, I'm pretty sure that the custom stuff is only on the Agiles, not the SX and Douglas. So, nothing in the $99 range anyway. So it's not like you're going to have to pay $401(to meet the $500 amount) to get a custom paint job on a $99 guitar.

Intrepid Pro Natural with Ebony Fretboard - scheduled delivery: August 3rd.

The funny thing is, I thought I'd be waiting until October, so I wound up getting an FM-408 to tide me over... two weeks ago. Two eight-strings in about two weeks... who can complain?

Yea. I paid the second half of mine recently and just got an email for Kurt saying that I would have gotten mine with this run but no one backed out of their pre-orders. Guess I still gotta wait until October.

And just like you I was looking for a FM-408 a while ago to tie me over. Hoping there's some of the Interceptor 8's left over.

What model/color did you go with? i just recently ordered one from the Oct. run and got a shipping email today saying that mine would be here on the 3rd as well so I assumed that there were plenty of leftovers. I ordered the Oceanburst pro so maybe that just isn't a popular color.

i think the oceanburst pro isn't that popular because of the blue/brown mix :P

I really like the Oceanburst. It seems like a rare finish compared with all the guitars out there. Nicer than the natural finish IMO.

i don´t really like the oceanburst on the pro myself, but i love it on the standard. on the pro it just looks wrong to my eyes, because it´s brown wood fading into a blue hue, and there´s such a collision between the hues there... the darkburst and bloodburst are nicer for the pro i think. personal opinion, of course!

Yea I guess its just opinion really. Being left handed though, to have the choice of that sort of exotic colour is cool.

Many times I have wanted guitars only to find there is one choice of finish. SO annoying.

I love the Oceanburst, and if there was an Oceanburst Intrepid 728 Pro I'd totally go for it.
