Hondo II

The Hondo II has "button topped" pickups at both neck and bridge positions and a body made from plywood laminate. This model was the second bass guitar owned by Peter Hook and can be seen in the footage of all the performances that Joy Division recorded for television. It was eventually replaced by a Yamaha BB1200 around the time of the recording sessions for the Closer album.
