New Multi Scale Defiant!

Advanced Order: This item is currently in high demand.  The target ship date for orders placed today is May 29, 2024.  Actual ship date may vary.  Rondo Music recommends ordering prior to the target ship date as this item often sells out well in advance.

Add a protective hard-shell case!   Rondo Music always recommends shipping fragile and temperature sensitive guitars in hard shell cases for added protection. You may bundle a case with your order. Bundling will reduce the shipping charges on the case and your guitar will ship to you secured in the protective case. To receive the discount, just be sure to put the guitar and case in your shopping cart at the same time (choose “add to cart” and not buy it now during reverb checkout). You will see the discounted shipping at checkout.
