I bought this Hondo Deluxe Series 760 Stratocaster off eBay in December 2010. It was probably MIJ or MIK in 1980-84. It has a solid hardwood body, probably maple and mahogany, and a two piece maple neck and maple fretboard; the fretboard is mildly figured with curls. It feels a little bit heavier than a Fender Strat, by 1 or 2 pounds. Dimarzio pickups, slightly hotter than Fender. The usual Fender-style tremolo bridge. The 5-position switch is not the original. Many of its screws are not original too; it had a strange hodge-podge of mismatched non-original screws, which I replaced with Fender and Gibson screws. It looks, plays and sounds beautiful. My only complaint is that it has the usual sub-par Hondo tuners, which I am going to replace with something better. It has its original hard shell case, a little different from the usual Strat cases.

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!
