I recently bought this bass on a garage sale for 100 SEK (about 15$). The model is Hondo deluxe series 830. I don't know about the year but I guess it's from the late 70's or early 80's. It's been strangely and quite ugly modded fretless from the 8th fret and upwards. With new strings on it, it sounds very good in my ears. Feels solid and well built. The question now is if it's worth refretting. What do you think?
