NGD - mid 1980’s Hondo HL-18

Post by leftykramerguy » Thu Sep 09, 2021 11:05 am

Once again in my quest to unnecessarily buy any lefty I see so other lefties cannot have them I present a minty 35+ year old Hondo acoustic Martin copy.

$21 with case
$12 bone nut and bridge
$6 worth of strings

Wow, that's a BARGAIN lol. You can barely get a meal for two at Chipotle for that price nowadays! Great score!

Also, just side note, your pool deck looks great LOL! We have concrete and I would love to go pavers, but probably just re-pour the settled areas and do a stamped concrete.

OK - back to the guitar :headbang

Thanks for the compliment on the guitar and the pool deck. I pressure washed the deck about 6 months ago and you can tell in my Kramer herd pick that I took the Duke photo AFTER the other ones dielaughing

Dude, you got a Hondo and you’re throwing it in our face?

That’s bullshit. Expect my Samick and Telestar pics soon since bragging is apparently ok here.

Hey Marco. I found a $21 35 year old guitar.

I was not bragging. You have to understand the plight of left handers and any guitar availability. Sorry if it came off as any different. :thumbs
