Hondo sounds better than Ibanez?!

I've just fixed up my Hondo Star guitar, put a new nut in it and its been refretted.

I plugged it in and was amazed at how good it sounded! the clarity, the tone and the feel!

It has still got its stock pickup from 1983 which makes me wanna think its a Dimarzio because it sounds soo good

It actually sounds better than my RG550 with Tone zone and paf pro
I think it needs sorting out :\

I'll probs get some clips up sometime!

A nice chuck of wood is a nice chunk of wood regardless of what is on the headstock.

I agree! In fact, I just posted a reply in the cheap guitar customization poll about something similar. I remember back in the 80s, that Hondo put out some decent axes. We would never buy one though, just because of what was on the headstock...

just like everyone has bin saying if its nice body and neck the name on the headstock doesn't matter because guitars are made of wood's and electronics not names

More power to you Speedabob! Hondo was my first piece of wood when I was kid in the 80's.
