I just got one last week and am very happy with it. I am going to post a review on here soon with pics
Maybe I was lucky but mine was perfect out of the box, no need for setup. I would compare the neck to a les paul 60's neck. The guitar sounds great and seems solid. It blows away any epiphone that I have played. Awesome guitar for the money
PS: These are the original pick ups. The picture on their site had the zebra pick ups but when it arrived it had the nickel covers (maybe this is a newer model). I ordered the guitar on a Sunday, it was shipped on Monday and I had it on Tuesday.

I have a couple of the LP styles, but no 500. I have done well with Xaviere, ended up with about six of them (you can't stop!), exchanged one for cosmetic issues. I am not a fan of the usual PAT variants, either the Crunchy or Fat, but the VEH, are excellent pickups, in the bright/snarly and middy/grindy categories, respectively. I might recommend replacing the pots, jacks and switch, especially if something is wonky out of the box. I have one with a volume knob that trends towards on/off, bad taper.
EDIT: Oh, yeah, neck is not remotely chunky. You'll want to go elsewhere for that.

My opinion, although I've never played one, is that it is a nice guitar and very hard to beat at that price point for what it offers. However, the neck is too narrow for me so I would pay a little more and get an Agile 2500 or 3000 with the wide neck.
I like that Rondo offers some “wide” models, which have been of great benefit to me with the two I’ve bought from there.
I’ve done some research on LP-style axes, and if/when I get one, it’ll be an Agile.
