Anyone know which model this is? I have looked all over the Electra site and I'm still not sure.

Thanks, Ronnie

Now I don't feel too bad. I had a major boo-boo on one of the model pages that was there for a VERY LONG TIME and no-one noticed (or reported it anyway). :o

That bridge looks a lot like a slip-on Kahler or clone, which means the body could very well be routed underneath so the trem sits properly (room made for the springs). Knobs are not original either, and I suspect the pickups are not as well (mine had cream bobbins and were original). The truss cover is missing as well. With that many changes I wonder if the coil cut on the tone knobs is still intact.

Good thing I sent Electraman the original shots since I've changed out the pickups since then.

Yea, it has a Kahler bridge. The truss rod cover is missing because it had a Kayler locking nut on it that has been taken off. I think I have one in my pile of junk though. I just bought it with case for 139.00
I know its modified but still worth the money. I'll give a report when it gets here. I'm a sick dude buying all these Electra's, its got to stop some time before I go broke.

Ronnie

PS. Thanks Electraman

Don't tell me your the guy who got that one on ebay for 150.00 buy it now a couple of weeks ago. I was sick when I saw that. Those are my favorite Electra's.
