    So I had been on the lookout for an SX Liquid with humbuckers and seen a pair of the tobacco burst ones on guitar centers used site for months now at ridiculous prices and didn't even feel like haggling them down on price at all. Something told me to check the used music go round out in St Charles and low and behold they had a surf green one with humbuckers for $129.99. I got my happy ass down there and snagged it up and brought it back home only to find out that the pickups had a grounding issue, so I pop off the pickguard and find some fender diamondback pickups in there... looked them up and they are worth about $80-100 used but I did not like the tone of them so I ordered a pair of white artec humbuckers for $40. After I sell the fender pickups I basically will have gotten this guitar for $69.99 which is a steal! I just got done wiring up the pickups and set it up properly and man, this guitar punches my gut with power chords all up and down the fretboard, just like my other Liquid Ash!!! I have not felt guitars this resonant since owning my old 1981 Les Paul Custom, they are very good pieces of wood for such a cheap guitar! Does anyone know if this is a surf green or baby blue? To me it looks surf green, but does anyone have an old rondo link to this guitar? I dont remember them offering this color with humbuckers. Anyways here are some pictures of it with my other SX liquid.

    Rondo calls it Powder Blue.
    When I bought my lefty Liquid with 2 P90s and JM trem (also in Powder Blue), they were also offering the humbucker version in the same color.
    I'm not sure how they figure it's Powder Blue. Looks like Surf Green to me.
    Or, close to it. Looks like one of those candy eggs from Easter time.

    I have to agree with you there, not really a powder blue in my eyes either, more like a surf green for sure.

    Congrats! Gotta love the Liquids.

    That one is the Powder Blue one.

    I had a Sea Foam Green one, and it was much more green than that.

    BTW, nice score. Would love to hear you play it.
    Originally, I was wanting a Strat. Was looking at Squier.
    Then, I found the Hawk on Rondo's website.
    Then, I found the Liquid. Wasn't really sold on it at first.
    Ended up watching a bunch of videos to find out how it sounds.
    I bought the Liquid before buying the Hawk. No regrets.
    I fell in love with the Liquid and its P90s.

    If only they'd make the P90 Hawk in lefty.

    I wish I had some recording equipment to be able to show it off. I will be able to purchase some here in the next year so when I do get some I will come back and post some clips.

    One reason I bought mine was because I can't afford a lefty Jazzmaster.
    This is the closest I'm likely to come for a long while.
    Luckily, I really like my Liquid.
