I have a SX GG1 Custom and a Shelter California Standard (Shelter and SX are basically the same company). Pretty good guitars, in my country, there was nothing better on their price range, but I also had an extremely narrow set of options.

Although I don't know much about their newer models I'd say: If that's all you're willing to pay it's a decent guitar, but for a little bit more you most likely can get something better, specially if you live in a country with more options.

A few notes:
1-The site says the guitar is made of mahogany, but SX guitars are usually built with nato.
2-One of the biggest problems I had with the guitars is hum. Both of them have extremely annoying noisy hum, specially the GG1.
4-The locks in this guitar look the same as the ones in the GG1 and these locks suck.
5-The guitars' pickups are surprisingly good and are most definitely their strongest feature.

Remember that these are for the Standard and the GG1, which are among their first models.

If you buy a guitar from Rondo, make sure it says Agile on it. 4 out of 5 dentists agree that the Agile guitars are the ones they put effort into. The SX, Hadean, and Douglas lines from Rondo are less likely to be worth it. I bought a Douglas 7 string and it was ass, wiring sucked, truss rod was cranked all the way upon arrival. I bought an Agile 8 string for only a couple hundred more and it's easily the nicest guitar I have. Setup was flawless straight out of the box and I've only had to crack it open and make a wiring repair once.

If you're just looking for a decent LP shaped guitar, you'd probably be a lot happier if you shell out another $125 and grab this bad girl: http://www.rondomusic.com/product6965.html Or just get an Epiphone: http://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/ENBHSCH Epi's really aren't bad guitars. If you go with the Epi and buy it online, buy from Sweetwater. Their 55-point QC check that they give every guitar they ship out is dope as fjuck.

SX, Hadean, Douglas and Agile are not lines from Rondo. Rondo is only a distributor and these are brands Rondo works with (and also happens to have monopoly over the distribution).

But yeah, the Agile is a lot better option, provided OP is willing to spend more. I heard rumors about Sweetwater guitars being plek'd and somehow I also heard about Sweetwater Epiphones with fret problems. I'd only recommend buying an Epiphone if you can try it out before buying, they're just hit or miss.
