I've been trying to sell this hideous creature of a bass back in sweden for a while but with minor success . Is it really that ugly? I would say yes but for a collector of odd basses it might be fun to own this "thing". I never use it and want to save some money for another bass so maybe someone out there is interested in buying the Flash.
Model: Hondo Flash
Produced: sometime in the 80's by Hondo. Design by Harry Fleischman
Mics: 1 piezo and 1 jazz
everything should be original except for the input jack which i switched for a new one since the old one was really noicy. i have also changed the screws and springs on the bridge saddles to new schaller ones since some where missing.
the bass sounds pretty good and the condition is good whith some minor dings in the surface. the frets seems to be in good shape.
BUT... there is one possible problem. the neck is a little bit bent, due to string tension (not twisted though) so the string height is a little high, at least for me. why, i don't know. i've tried to do some minor tuning with the truss rod but no success. if someone is good on handling truss rods and taking care of basses then this might not be a problem at all. except for the string height, it works fine.
if you have a sore back then this bass might be good since it is really light, the scale just passes 2kg.
i think this bass is kind of rare, so maybe sonething for the collector.
the bass is located in Sweden, but can easily be sent within EU. the buyer pays the freight charge.
and the price... how about £180, or give me and offer.
1st fret (the measures is: inch to the left, cm to the right)
the bent neck you can see here
i'll try to answer questions if there are any.
EDIT: MANY MORE PICS IN A POST FURTHER DOWN
