    MIJ Hondo II Professional neck and body: typical example of late '70s/early '80s Japanese Fender copy. (NOTE: body includes guard and bridge, neck includes all hardware. Anything else shown in pics not included.)

    Body has been refinished amateurishly with an iridescent color (looks blue/purple/green depending on angle). Cool but not pro. Dings, scratches, etc. are plenty. Extra holes from different guard. Will include original bridge with ground wire. Will include black guard that fits if you want it, but it's been modded too (extra hole for pot, neck pocket shaved a bit). This was originally just a P bass but has been professionally routed for a Jazz pickup too (nice clean rout). This body is a great workhorse cheap project, but nothing special. $60 shipped to lower 48.

    Neck is in great shape other than a few scratches. Some wear, but plays great. Truss rod works, feels very nice like a '70s Fender neck (B). Tuners work but are not fantastic. I would replace them if I were keeping it, though they're okay as is. $100 shipped to lower 48.

    $150 for both pieces together. In the assembled pics below, you can see how the color shifts.

    Don't have the exact weight, but it's pretty light. I recall that the entire bass built up with hardware and everything was just over 8 lbs.

    I just re-read my original description, and I'm not sure I did a good job emphasizing how much I like this neck (and the whole project bass). It feels and plays great all built up. Typical MIJ quality from this era.

    I have an MIJ Lotus P copy that is essentially identical to this Hondo model, down to the headstock.

    The neck is absolutely killer. I'm addicted to it!
