    Generally, 35 years ago guitar fiends made fun of everything about Hondo guitars except the strap buttons.

    If you like this one then hey, your loss is limited . . . at least you can say, "But honey, it was only two hundred bucks!"

    Hondo was consider near bottom of the barrel way back when. For $200, it had better be mint, sound great and play great too. Otherwise... walk on by. You can pick up an used Ibanez Artcore in excellent condition for $200-300.

    Some of the set neck models are really nice. I wouldn't bother with a bolt on for 200$ but I would pay 200$ for a set-neck.
