My friend Taylor recently told me about a Hondo II guitar he found in his attic, left by the guy who formerly lived in his house. I just found it online, and it looks to be a Strat replica. It was being sold in a kit with an amp for $180, and since his is used, and probably in pretty good condition, I'd say it'd be worth around $120. What do you guys think about this? Would it be a good buy?

A Hondo strat copy tobacco sunburst white pickgaurd was my 1st guitar, worst tuning keys ever they would bind up and feel like you neded pliers to move them sometimes, action wa horrid, tone was horrid dont do it. I got an Aria Pro metal looking pointy horned strat a year later that lasted for 6 years till I got a real job.

Man this was the Aria I wanted so bad when I was like 16 I still love how the lower horn flows into the front part of the body, Dean EVOs come close but have a lumpy awkward look to the upper bout and dont have the ESP horn. The top body line is like the divider line in the middle of a yin yang
