That’s right folks, Hadean GPDEN $200, just showed up on Rondo Music. This took me by surprise. But anyone who knows about Rondo Music knows that you don’t reflexively reject their guitars just because the prices are absurd.
You hear about a couple duds models but many guitars are considered the best bang for your buck guitars ever (like their offset model, which I got for $140 and looks and sounds amazing—multiple sources essentially said it’s better than anything below $600—no need to upgrade anything, or their strat models.)
A google search finds zero customer reactions on this particular D-hole model. Rondo’s selection is random and changes a lot. They may not have had this in stock for years. And it may disappear for ages when it sells out.
I’m not exactly saying I want to be the guinea pig, but you really never know. I wouldn’t scoff honestly. None of their stuff looks like shit, at least.
If you have no more than $200 and are OBSESSED with getting a GJ guitar (unlikely, I know, in this community
), I for one might take a chance. You could always see a GJ tech and see if you could upgrade it like Michael does with Ciganos.
Rondo is pretty amazing for the super budget customer. Not all of us snort at anything less than $1000. I mean, do you even deserve Excalibur if you don’t know how to slay a dragon yet?? Hehe
