This is almost a lesson in how a bit of polish can go a long way.
Found this Hondo Deluxe Series 767 Flying V on eBay for £27. The original pictures from the listing dont do the guitar any justice at all.
After using lighter fluid to remove the stickers and a bit of t cut the guitar looked very nice indeed.
Made in the mid 80's out of probably mahogany this is a very nice guitar. Quite heavy in weight it feels like a manly guitar (if that makes sense)
