    Picked this up at an auction. It has some paint chipping and chips on the headstock but is in decent shape overall. Frets are alright. It says Hondo II on the headstock but no righting on the bass. The pickguard and wiring are not original I know for sure. Idk about anything else. Can anyone shed some light on this for me?

    Looks older and less Indonesian than mine. Nice.

    Any guesses to what its worth? What year it was made?

    Actually a fairly rare version of the H-830 (although that doesn't really make it worth any more, sorry), it was only made for one year with that headstock before becoming part of the Deluxe Series. So it's a 1981. Made in Korea by Samick. Value? Maybe $100-200.

    More info here: H-830

    I just realized that it has a Gibson style nut. You can see it in the picture of the headstock. Never seen that before on a fender style bass.
