This thing is wild! What would you wear while you play this? This Hondo Formula 1 bass is from the era of big hair and spandex.  The body is made of Asian mystery wood. Look at that wild shape. The 34 inch scale maple neck has 20 frets.  A single split coil pickup delivers the thunder. A brass saddle bridge and Grover tuners keep it rock solid. The finish is an outrageous holographic pink burst. Like a heavy metal acid trip.

This is a cool bass. It plays well for what it is and sounds pretty cool. The neck is straight and the action is good.  Condition wise, it’s in solid shape for its age. Overall VG condition, it shows light to moderate pick and clearcoat scratches and moderate indents and dings. There’s a bigger paint chip on one of the horns. Overall, normal wear. Comes in a chipboard case with no handle.

What a crazy world we live in where you could buy such a wacky bass. I love this thing but you may love it more.
