Early '80s Hondo H935, Walnut
Here we have a Hondo H935, inspired by a classic design and in a classy walnut finish. The Hondo company started in 1969, and quickly began a partnership with Samick in Korea. The company made thousands of guitars over the coming decades, with many being mid-quality copies of Fender and Gibson designs. This is one such instrument, made roughly in the early ‘80s and likely in Korea. It is difficult to determine anything certainly about this guitars origin, as aside from the headstock logo, it is missing any and all stickers or labels. We are fairly certain of its model, approximate age, and country of origin based mostly on comps and dedicated researchers in the online community. Regardless of exact dates and such, this guitar is a beautiful instrument with a great sound and a classic look. After a professional set-up by our in-house tech, this guitar plays wonderful with a comfortable action and only some slight buzz from the lower strings. The pick-ups are well rounded and warm, with a great neck sound and a fairly reserved bridge sound. The headstock has a circular scratch around the B tuning post, but luckily most of the other wear on the guitar is on the back of the body and neck. The top has a few bumps and dings, but is largely very clean. All told, this is an awesome instrument and a fine player; don’t pass it up! Sorry, no case with this one.
