When I started playing guitar as a teenager in the 80s we all had the "cheap" knockoffs of the guitars we thought we really wanted. I personally knew at least 8 players with Hondo guitars. They were all Les Paul and Stratocaster copies. I knew they made other models, especially those inspired by the decade, but never before have I seen a Hondo telecaster.
This made in Japan Hondo Deluxe 757 looks to be in great shape and I really like the lemony sunburst.
At $150 Canadian the only thing keeping me from this awesome copy is mere logistics as it's a few big provinces away from where i am.
