I am quite pleased with the Douglas Violin Bass I bought from Rondo..although it is an entry level bass it seems to play very well, at least to my untrained ears. It was shipped doubled box and arrived unscathed. The ax seems to be very well made and after a quick setup it was ready to go.
I seem to be "picking it up" quickly....must be from playing guitar for the last 40 years or so.
KUDOS to Rondo!!!
