This Hondo has to be one of the best crafted guitars I have ever played. From Dimarzio pickups, to a set kneck where the dovetail is done beautifully. I have no ideal of the year but I know that I cant’ find anything like it. If any of the readers have any clue what I have please let me know. I would put this guitar up against a Gibson any day of the week, this thing is incredible.
