    I actually kind of like the newer color. However, I would have to see both in person to decide for sure.

    I can tell you that given Kurt's notorious photo quality, I really wouldn't be surprised if this is just a poor picture and nothing has changed at all :).

    really like that newer color compared to the old. If the new one does have that cream color center it would look great im tempted but have to ask rondo if picture is correct or not

    Sorry, should'a put the LINK to the item above, edited post.

    Dayum, I don't need another effing guitar... but if that color IS right, I like it.

    I have a lot of purple guitars as you may know, but it's hard to pull off bursting purple into gold/yellow, very unusual burst, the middle color often turns out to be mudd, but I happen to have one that they pulled off... an EBMM SM-Y2D.

    So whadaya think, these babys just NEED each other?

    Lol yeah we know rondo pictures are usually off but this new pic is way off from the old color. It is a unusual color and looks nice. wish they had a model with that middle cream white color on the whole guitar it would be killer.

    I went ahead and sent them an email with the old pic they used month ago and the new one they have now asking if the new color was like the pic and not the old color being more greyish in the burst. old pic

    Feels like it's trying too hard. I like purple, but it's a strange enough color that it should be by itself. I really dislike the purple and yellow combo. I didn't like the original either...

    Rondo said The new picture is correct. The guitar is more of a creamish color in the middle this time.
    since they only got 4 in stock probably a fluke color and will be back to greyish center color like old pic next restock but who knows with rondo
    Im on the fence about it, the black back isnt appealing to me as a purple stained back

    Aw thanks for checking with him! I figured the new one was right, they’re too far apart as they said. I’ve seen some egregious disconnects on Rondo’s pic colors, but I have to say from my personal experience his pics are really spot on. His versions of the purple guitars I’ve bought were always more accurate than my pics.

    I’m thinking about it. It’s a pretty cool color to me, unusual. Don’t y’all see they do different color runs, and then you never see them again? I mean you guys have to admit, notwithstanding the customs crowd like carvin, Rondo over the years have had one of the largest variations of finish color over almost everybody!

    The thing is not sure a 3010 is compelling enough. Like others like YOU, I have enuff guitars and this to me is just another LP. No thick maple, no Floyd, no thin neck, idk. It’s 4 bones, which is good for a nice LP but not great. Maybe someone could — sell me on the 3010.

    Been monitoring it, he had 4, and the 4 are still there.

    if it was a 3100 model for 15.00 more or if anyway a b stock popped up id be on it. last agile i bought was a 3200 with case for 450 total shipped this being 400 shipped isnt as appealing but maybe if those 4 stay around long enough to go on sale i might jump. Its a unique off color and probably wont be restocked being a off color than the normal purple black quilt they usually stock.

    Well it seems Rondo still has four of these, they're still on sale.

    One just showed up on reverb on sale to the original sale. Thinking about pulling the trigger.

    Don't need another dang LP!

    I like purple, but I don't like either of those finishes... Though my opinion is likely to change if I see one in person, or in a picture not taken by Kurt.
