86 h7370

1986 H7370 B

The H-7370 (sometimes labeled EG-1736) was introduced in 1984 as Hondo's entry-level Les Paul copy. Despite being advertised as featuring Rosewood fretboards, they were actually a very light wood stained to look like Rosewood, and it's very common for the stain to wear off from playing. Despite being produced several years after the Gibson/Ibanez lawsuit, many of these came with open book headstocks (while others came with Hondo's Deluxe headstock).

Made in Incheon, Korea by Samick.
