Summary:

In this article we take an overview at various guitar models that Rondo Music sells under the SX brand. Even more pocket-friendly that their Agile counterparts, are SX models up to the task ? Let's see.

Yes, this site is about Agile guitars, we know. But in this article we want to take a look at a sister brand, also retailed by Rondo Music, the SX Guitars. A quick overview.

SX Guitars

Rondo Music makes great instruments at amazing prices. This last sentence is never more truthful than when we look at the variety, quality and affordability of the SX Guitars. Yes, we like Agiles better of course, but the SXs are also worth considering, particularly if you are on a tight budget or you are just starting with guitar playin’. There are a lot of models, and prices all the way from $79 (yes, there’s no mistake there) to a couple of hundred bucks. Unlike the Agiles, the SX Guitars are produced in China and imported and distributed by Rondo Music. Let’s take a look at the best-seller models.

 

SX Furrian

The Furrian is the SX take on the Telecaster type of guitar. Starting at only $79.95 this SX Telecaster is a fantastic opportunity for those looking for a classic axe, to play rock and roll or blues, and do not want to spend that much. Also, besides the traditional Tele models you can find some semi-hollow options at around $170, still very tempting.

The SX Furrian features:

  • Traditional 3-piece solid Ash or Alder body (semi-hollow in selected models)
  • Maple neck and fretboard (rosewood on some models)
  • 21 jumbo frets
  • One mini single-coil and one regular single-coil pickup
  • Volume and tone controls plus a 3 way switch
  • Chrome hardware

Some available models:

  1. SX Furrian MN Ash NA for $129.95 here !!
  2. SX Furrian RN BSB for only $99.99 here !!
  3. SX Furrian H MN SGN Semi Hollow for $159.95 here !!

Sx Callisto

The Callisto is the SX Les Paul model. With amazing prices starting at $89 up to $159 it’s going to be hard to find better value for this price. An advice, check regularly for stock on these guitars because once restocked they don;t last much, so if you’re interested in one don’t take too much time to think.  Very much sought by rock, hard rock and metal players, the SX Callisto features:

  • Solid Alder or Mahogany single cut body (No Plywood !!)
  • Bolt on neck, maple
  • Adjustable truss-rod
  • Depending on model one or two P-90 for that classic sound !
  • 22 jumbo frets with inlays

Some available models:

  1. SX Callisto SC 2TS for only $89.95 here !!
  2. SX Callisto JR TVY for $139.95 here !!
  3. SX Callisto Gold P90 for $159.95 here !!

SX Hawk

The Hawk is what we would call the SX Stratocaster. A classic body shape, a bunch of configuration options and there you have a classic axe, at an amazing price. An absolutely fantastic instrument for those starting and looking for a versatile instrument, that can be used for any music style: rock, pop, jazz, heavy. Among its features you’ll find:

  • Traditional 3-piece solid Ash or dual cutaway Alder body (No Plywood !!)
  • Maple bolt on neck and fretboard (rosewood on some models)
  • Adjustable truss-rod
