    I seem to remember that during the x-mas season there would be more items on sale at Rondo. I also remember him getting in some other models - like SX Callisto's and such. Are those days over?

    I always think of January or February as the time the big shipment comes in. Not so much Christmas time.

    Maybe years ago, and I just don't remember?

    If theres 1 thing that is predictable about Rondo, is that they are unpredictable.

    My first post on AGF was made on December 29th of 2014. The subject of that thread was the AL-3101M that I has received in the mail from Rondo on the 24th, Christmas Eve. Yessirre, it was a good old fashioned Rondo Christmas that year.

    And that is how I came to fall in with you bunch of enablers.

    Well, here I am, four years older, heavier in the load by about five dozen guitars, with a beard nearly as long as Santa's, lost a couple cats and picked up a few more along the way too.

    But I will always associate Rondo and Agile with Christmas.

    As long as your net cat balance stays positive your doing great. At least that's what was taught in Cat Accounting 101

    Twas the night before Christmas and all thru the house not a mod was stirring except for Mickey of course.

    The nitro safe stands were set by the chimney with care in hopes that FedEx would soon be there.

    The Gassers were nestled all snug in their beds while visions of Chibsons danced in their heads.

    Now Pesky, now Tonray Now Steve and Tonebender, on Rokdog, on Mossman, on Sabas on Jofa.

    Tiny Toomany Sat stroking his beard while feline accomplices lounged in his laird.

    TobiJohn ran excitedly to peer under the tree and with a sad face proclaimed "are there no lefties for me ?"

    As Kurt turned the sleigh north and began to go a trail of seven string shredders with fanned frets was left in the snow.

    Stay alert - the technicals predict that Kurt's inventories of desirable instruments will swell as soon as the consumer's balance sheets reflect a shortage of disposable income. If the charts hold true and the trend continues, Rondo's inventory will peak in early January through late February.

    However, caution is warranted. Leaks and whispers among insiders are that John Way has reviewed an all-new Gypsy Rose fretless five string uke with Floyd trem, and that the product will be launched around Groundhogs day ahead of the Super Bowl. These rumors remain unsubstantiated.

    So, the risk adverse might be advised to shed excess cash ahead of the expected market move, and rebalance their Liquid portfolios.

    The prudent should stay Agile.

    Hey Tonray, couldn't you come up with a rhyme for "Manodano"? Get back to work, Son, you're not done with that parody yet because I'm not in it.
