Information on Hondo Series 870 Fame Deluxe

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by StathisBass, Sep 4, 2017.


  1. Does anyone know anything about this model? I've been trying to find some information on it but only the series 830 was what I found. Anything about it's production, woods, worth is appreciated. I'm thinking about selling it, that's why I am asking. Thanks! IMG_20170302_153945.jpg IMG_20170302_153945.jpg

  2. No one?
     
  3. Not a great deal of info. Made in Korea 1984/85. Has a maple neck but you already know that :) The body will be nato wood, a far east mahogany subsitute.

    I remember Hondo/Fame basses being fairly common in mid 80's Europe. Nothing particularly striking about this model that I can see,no DiMarzio pickups for instance.
     
  4. Thank you Kodiak Blair! The truth is I know nothing about it, not even the woods. All I know is that it was on the top shelves of the company's list.

    Epiphone had the same bass with a pointy headstock, same bridge, same factory. Don't recall the model name though.
     
  6. I remember a bass, completely the same in hardware, just the body was in a "V" shape being sold for almost 4000 $ and made me start considering of selling it.
     
  7. A $4000 Hondo would be a surprise. Here's a couple of links to Hondo models and the Hondo story.
