    Hi friends! Can you help identify this HONDO bass?

    The seller is telling me that it's from the 70's but I have no idea. Price is 100$

    Thank you!!!

    Can't help you, but for $100, if it was right in front of me and it looked like it would take a setup, I'd probably snag it.

    Thank you Charlie! I've asked for a better picture. I can see it only through the web. If it's a 70s bass it should be a good bass and well worth that money. But I don't know and still "investigatin"

  4. I have had a couple of 70's hondo's. Both with warped truss rods unfortunately. It was impossible to get a set up i like on them. They were pretty though

  6. In the '70s Hondo was a super cheap copy company, and the copies weren't even accurate.
    Bad pickups, bad hardware, bad wood, bad craftsmanship.
    Starter guitars for kids.

    Find a used Squier for a few dollars more and you'll be a lot happier.
