Hondo is a musical instruments whole seller in the States, currently produces beginner level electric guitars and basses which are based on the designs of Fender and Gibson. Between 1974 and 1983 Hondo produced guitars by Tokai Gakki in Japan. These models are good quality. I saw several model is market. Tokai Made seems to be very expensive (well almost like Greco, Fernandes level… ). The current models are probably made in Korea or China.
