SX Furrian Fat returns... sort of


At least this is actually available again.

I've been asked more than once if the black SX Furrian Fat I have is available should somebody want one, as it has been out of production for a while.

The black one isn't avialable, but at least the red one can be bought again right now at the time I write this.

This guitar is labeled as a CAR which is supposed to mean Candy Apple Red, indicating the red does have some metal flake in it. As for how much sparkle the finish has, I'm not certain because I've never seen it in person. But from photos, it appears to be a subtle sparkle, which I consider a good thing.

Can you get the white guard instead of black? I don't think so, but you can email Rondo and ask them. They do sell pick guards but the Furrian Fat guard isn't listed there. However, just because it's not listed doesn't mean it's not available, so again, ask. Getting that extra white guard won't be free, but considering how low in price the guitar is, spending an extra $10 or $20 on one still makes the guitar a great deal.

Yes, I do think the guitar would look far better with a white guard on it instead of black. If the neck had a rosewood fingerboard on it, then sure, leave it black. But it's a maple fingerboard, so the contrast between the neck color and guard color is very pronounced.

Is this CAR version of the Furrian Fat the same one I have? I believe it is. So if you've been waiting for this one and don't mind the red with the black guard, now you can get it.
