Guitar from the 80's, Bridge from the 60's. by golly it just might work
I think the one the OP has is definitely not a H1, or, not a typical one, at least. They have more sculpted cutaways and string trees, which the OPs lacks. Also, the OP's seems to not have a backplate for springs, etc. as on the Hondo.
I'm almost thinking luthier-built quality one-off, but the TRC is a mystery, too.
Did you buy that from Jem and the Holograms?
I keep being led back to the JTG Guitars Infinity, and the apparently dozen or so guitars allegedly built for potential endorsees.... still digging.
Did it come with a case of hairspray?
I think you posted on the wrong site. This is Talkbass, not Talkguitar.
If you think those Headstocks are the same you need to get your eyes checked! The Hondo strings run straight to the tuners while the OP's bend to the offset! (Well if it had all the strings!)
You’re gonna poke your eye out, kid!
Sorry, was looking at the last picture the OP posted. You are correct.
That thing is sick
(Im from the 80s)
Yoouch! I bet the neck got broke from throwing it around the back. ala Steve vai! Doofus drummer once threw my bass over his shoulder after watching DLR band video "Yankee Rose"! Butt kicking ensued! luclily no bass harmed.
I should hate it, I expected to hate it, but I love it!
For some reason, this came to mind.....
You traded FOR that?
So, how long is that case? I can fit any of my basses in my trunk, but I don't think that guitar would fit. Hate to be practical, but if you can't get the guitar to a gig without a special vehicle, what use is it?
Maybe he drives a 1970s four door sedan (Delta88/Parisienne/Caprice/
LTD/Galaxie) in which case it can ride careless in the back seat.
OP, I am not a flamboyant stage rocker by any means and gravitate towards pretty nondescript instruments, but that red pointed maybe-Hondo thing is cool. If that was in my fleet I would find ways to get it out and “exercise” it regularly.
If it was a hardtail, even better. I like one-humbucker hardtail guitars.
Hope to hear more about this project as you settle in with it.
How much more pointyerish could it be?
Apparently you haven't read my OP AT ALL. Because I used the photos of that very same Reverb listing to point out (No pun intended) why is is NOT a Hondo.
-The shape of the body bevels doesn't match
- Mine has a neck through body construction whereas on a Hondo, they all were set necks.
- Mine had a Kahler style bridge at one point, Hondo never offered theirs with one
- And no the headstock is not a match, Hondo's had a Fender style flat headstock, mine has a Gibson style angled headstock.
So you know....
