SX and Douglas = BIG no no.

They aren't really any good in any of the above things, and trust me, I HAVE played both, sometime or another.

Agiles are okay, but they're getting a bit overrated now.

I've played plenty of nice Douglas guitars, the Hawker is really nice, especially for the price. I would avoid anything with a Floyd on it though.

As for SX, they're cheap, and that's about it. You'll get a Squire Affinity level instrument for 100 bucks, but you'll have to do a setup. If you replace the tuners and nut you'll have a fine beginners or travel instrument. Older ones have notoriously bad necks, but the newer ones don't seem to have that problem as a whole.

SX is terrible, Douglass is ok, and Agile is pretty good.

SX has the worst guitar neck ever made, the finish is cheap, hardware is rickity and makes the instrument go out of tune easily, and the electronics/pickups have to be replaced immediately. I dare say this is the worst guitar/bass brand on earth.

Douglass is alright, just use judgement when buying from them, like avoiding (as mentioned above) cheap floyds.

Agile actually has quite a large following on here, their les pauls are rumoured to be of better quality than their epiphone rivals for much cheaper.

Trust me, I've BOUGHT both and given both brands as gifts, and for the price they blow anything else out of the water.

No, no, no, and no. For the price you pay for the guitar it is a fine instrument. I had no tuning issues whatsoever with the one I had unless I touched the [vintage] trem on it, and tuning issues are to be expected with a trem. The finish was absolutely perfect as well, no runs anywhere. The neck was true, the frets were nicely filed, and the shape was uniform. The electronics were virtually silent and everything sounded quite fine for a guitar of its price range.

I might also add that I can certainly think of worse brands on the Earth... Wind River comes to mind.

My brother has bought six or seven guitars from Rondo. He loves cheap guitars to work on/re-paint/fix up. From what I have seen and from playing his;

SX's are crap. Period.

The Douglas models are a decent body and neck already finished and are playable out of the box, but.... All the hardware, electronics and pups are really cheap and will need to be replaced and a fret level and setup will be a must if you want a decent playing guitar.

Agile's are somewhat solid and comparibe to lower end Epiphones. Again, this is just my personal opinion from playing them.

I didnt see any issues with the SX guitars at all

As a matter of fact they put some great fretwire on those guitars nice big jumbo frets and the fret work was good too at least on the one I had it was a strat clone with P-90s in it.

The electronics were fine, decent bridge and the nut work was good too. If you compare it to something like a squire off the shelf I don't think theres any comparison.
