I bought this off eBay in 2009. It was probably manufactured MIJ or MIK in 1983-84. It has a black finish all around with white piping on the front of the body. Set neck. One DiMarzio(?) humbucker pickup, one volume control only. Fender strat-style tremolo bridge. All the hardware is original except for the tremolo arm, and perhaps a few screws. It has an original form-shaped soft shell case which looks very strange...reminds me of an alligator, for some reason.

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. This design, however, was original and unique to Hondo. 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!
