This is a Hondo Deluxe Series 775 Star in a natural wood finish. It has a one piece maple neck with a skunk stripe, and my best guess is that the body is 5 pieces of maple laminated with 4 pieces of mahogany. The body has black and white binding on the front.

This is a classic Japanese guitar from the days when Japanese companies were just beginning to break into the American market with copies of Fenders and Gibsons, and they felt they had something to prove with the quality of their guitars. All in all this is a great guitar, and I'm happy to add it to my Hondo collection.

Wikipedia says that by the late 1970s, Hondo "featured designs based on classic American favorites; these copies were very good instruments and have become highly collectible."

If you buy a vintage Hondo, it will almost certainly require some basic restoration, mostly cleaning years of neglect off of it, but you’ll never regret it!
