    I used to have one of these, they are really nice, like a Kramer Duke bass. The Hondo was nicer made than a Kramer Duke that I had.

    I love mine. Very playable down all 24. The pickup is actually a quad coil, if it's the same as mine. I had to replace the volume pot, so I got a push pull to split them, top left/bottom right. The switch is parallel/serial. Used the schematic on the Kramer historical site for the Duke. Best of luck with your sale.

    Just curious: Is this a shorty like the Kramer Duke? I would love to find a short scale headless...

    I've never seen a Duke, but everything I could find on the Alien said it was almost an exact copy. The biggest difference is Alien has a rosewood finger board, while the Dike has an artificial one. I think it's called ebonex, or something close to that. I think the scale is about 30.5".
