Original owner was super nice and did two layers of shielding before he sold it to me. Loved this bass but ended up finding another P Bass that felt more comfortable for my playing needs. Currently strung with EB Slinky Cobalt Flats 45-105 here’s the info from the previous seller with all the specs:

    This 1982-1984 Vintage Hondo H830 Deluxe Precision style 4-String bass guitar is Used but in Good Condition; no major dings, cracks or dents, just normal finish nicks and surface wear from age/use (scratches/scuffs). The pickguard has some indentations from the thumbrest that was originally there (it was removed) and there was some chipping on the top layer of the pickguard by the output jack that has been touched up. The nut has been replaced and a newer Switchcraft output jack was installed. The back of the neck is smooth, the fingerboard was cleaned, the frets are in excellent condition (hardly any wear, truss rod and saddle screws all turn smoothly).

    I will include an SKB Case with this listing for safer travels to whoever it goes to.

    From the Samick Wikia: Hondo was formed in 1972 through a joint-venture between Samick and Texas-based IMC (International Music Corporation). The H-830 Deluxe Series was a homage to the venerable Fender Precision Bass - it features a chunky maple neck, Nato (Eastern Mahogany) body, X-15 Split-Coil P-pickup (modeled after the Dimarzio K-10 pickup).
