Answer
Hey John,

Thanks for writing back with the photographs! This looks like one the early post Gibson Lawsuit guitars that Hondo made at the end of the 1970s (like 1979). The earliest Hondo "copy" guitars had a headstock profile more like Gibson's "open book" treatment. The truss rod covers on the earlier Hondo "copy" guitars were bell shaped like the Gibson truss rod covers. There is a market for older Hondo electrics, even some of the models made in the 1980s. As for value, this model is currently going for around $400-500 US Dollars in the online auction market. Let me know if you have any further questions. Stay in touch...Johnny
