You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

all the hondo strats ive played were very nice sounding
they were usually pawn shop guitars and needed setup, but they played good

i would keep it stock and set it up if needed

Thanks I will let it as is but I will be shielding the cavities to reduce some hum. And the tremolo is a Kahler Flyer

IIRC, the Hondo Fame line was the MIJ while the Hondo "Pro" line was Korean and then the Hondo II's were made all over asia, japan included. That model's probably an early 80's model and those MIJ 70's and 80's guitar had some AWESOME sounding pickups. The bodies were hit or miss, there are Strat copies with plywood bodies and solid wood bodies from the same line of guitars. Like, my Ibanez is a 2375, should be an Ash body, but it's actually a plywood body (found that out recently, bummer). I've been checking out japanese strats on ebay and it's pretty inconsistent.

In anycase, I'd keep that thing stock, I just reverted my Ibanez back to stock, actually, and it sounds WAY better than when I had it tricked out. Just give it a set-up, try it out, and if you don't like it, you can customize or sell.

if it is, infact, a Japanese made guitar it's better than most korean guitars being made, even comparable to american made guitars in some cases. If it's their korean model, it's pretty much just, "meh"
