1981 Hondo / Tokai Danelectro twin-neck
Hondo was a pioneer of Korean guitar-making, beginning in 1969 as a joint venture between Samick of Korea and International Music Corporation of Fort Woth, Texas.
Their best guitars were made in Japan by Tokai, and included the Longhorn, an active-electronics take on Danelectro's Guitarlin.
This is the bass version. Unbelievable sound and playability, not to mention rarity and looks! The lower neck is a standard 4-string bass, utilising DiMarzio pickups as standard equipment in a Precision bass configuration.
The upper neck is the amazing addition! 8 strings in octave pairs; same tuning as standard, but with the addition of an extra string tuned an octave above each 'normal' bass string. Unbelievable punch! A solo played on this baby leaves a lasting impression. Pickups are in the classic P/J configuration, giving a great selection of tones for maximum punch and definition. DiMarzio pickups once again guarantee tone that can't be beaten.
This rare and mint bass comes in its original case.
