For a 119.00 and a will ray testimonial, I don't see how this guitar won't be great!
3 p90s black with white pickgaurd.
I play a partscaster with two Gibson p90s. I never had a guitar with 3 p90s and a 5 way switch. How is the quack? Similar to a standard strat?
I'm pretty excited!
Oh yea the body shape is so cool too...

Jealous... I've been pining for the cream trapeze for a looooong time.

I've had GAS for one of these off and on for years now. Congratulations!
I honestly think these will be collector's items on down the road in the same way that bizarro old Japanese, German, Italian, etc. pawn shop prizes of the 60s are today..

I was going to buy one of the Daphne Blue ones, but I was told the neck is a flat D shape. I don't think that would appeal to me.

I picked up one of the dual humbucker Liquids around Christmas. I really like it. My only problem is the placement of the volume pot. It kept getting in the way of my playing. So I eliminated the tone pot and moved the volume to where the tone pot was. It works better for me now.

How are stock humbuckers? I'll buy that one next if I like the 3 p90 one.

I got the guitar. Its real nice! I like the neck. Its not as flat as I thought it would be and its very comfy. I don't see any flaws really. Nut is cut proper. I had to change strings to 11s and adjust the truss rod, (which operates very smoothly), and stretch the springs underneath the bridge pickup so the pickup sits firmly in place without wobbling. The pickups sound kinda wimpy when set low, so if you get one, make sure the pups are high up or they won't have that p90 sound. I don't know how Rondo sells these for so cheap, because this guitar is dope! Peace.

I played two guitars with triple P-90s (Reverend and partcaster). And the answer is no. Well, maybe a quasi-quack. Set the middle pickup to the lowest setting you could to achieve that (with a bonus that it doesn't obstruct your pick/fingers when picking/strumming the strings) and change the middle position for bridge - neck sound. I don't find the middle pickup sound useful, YMMV.
