    Well, here we are again. I had this bass on the classifieds a few weeks ago, but quickly took it down. I just couldn't sell it at the price I had put on it. I am not entirely sure of the value of this instrument because there simply are not many around.

    It is a Hondo 830 Deluxe made in the Matsumoku factory sometime between the seventies and eighties. That is really all I know. There was no serial number system and very little documentation during this time.

    The bass plays and sounds great! It has a SD Quarter Pounder pickup and the knobs are non original as well as the nut. Currently strung with Chromes.

    Everything works as it should, and it is in really good condition.
    Feel free to email me with questions!

    I am mostly interested in a sale, but am always open to trades. All I can do is say no.

    For a straight sale I am looking for $350 Shipped in ConUS.

  5. I had one of these a long time ago in red sparkle finish with matching headstock. It was a great bass for the $30 I paid :D
