The HEG was introduced around 1974 as a copy of the '72-73 Gibson SG I & II models [1]. It replaced the SG-414 and was sold under the Hondo and Cobra brands. Early models had no pickguard and fretboard inlays that extended to the 21st fret. Around 1976, it was replaced by the HSG.

Made in Incheon, Korea by Samick.
