Not really. They had a reputation for being poorly built and made of plywood. That said, if you could get a Kahler one really cheap, it would be worth it for the price of the trem alone. I would say almost $400 is absurd for one. And where does it say MIJ?

I bought a Hondo while I was in LA. Good construction, honestly. Mine is a Late 70's Hondo double cutaway Lesa Paul copy with a 5-piece neck through construction. The neck is "striped", made of Maple/mahogany/maple/mahogany/maple. The body's "wings" are mahogany. Totally my next project guitar.

Pics of the Hondo? How does it play?

I've got a late 70s Hondo II LP copy. It's a really nice guitar. Made out of maple with a really nice alder top. It needs a refret but it's pretty well-made.

From what I've heard, the late 70s and early 80s were when good Hondos were built. Ones that were good value for money. I'd say, play it on every fret, inspect it thoroughly and if you like and it seems well built.. buy it.

the late hondo's are ... really cheap budget guitars...
maybe nice for a beginner and if you can get one for really really really cheap but as said above...

they're mostly made out of plywood and just... not as good as it should be

though...
old hondo's could be worth a try

I have a Hondo bass that I got off a friend for free. It plays pretty nicely and can take a beating. Goes out of tune easily though...

I had a Hondo as my first electric guitar. A strat type and it had a Floyd Rose trem and was bought from a guitar store secondhand. It had some sort of custom paint job like a blue swirl type effect. I think it was red originally.

I loved it. Gave it to a friend in the end. He's probably still got it. Next time I see him I'm gonna ask the question.
