I know some guitars are saught after because they did this (like airplane's) but come on that's just cheap. I must have gotten one of their lowest end guitars or something. As for Gibson; it really sucks, just go to the real gibson, and buy a Heritage. Very true. I happened to have a happy accident buying my first guitar and got a Hondo II LP custom copy with a set neck at a local shop. I also got a through-neck Hondo off of ebay that needed some resoldering for 117. I got a bolt-on neck hondo off ebay for 140 that ended up being stolen . I don't think any of mine were made of plywood, and all of them had true humbuckers. You have to be sort of discerning about Hondos. The ones with set necks and through-necks seem to be the highest quality, and the 73X series ones with bolt ons seem to be pretty damn good too.
