I can't believe it! They're discontinuing the Electra teles, including all the slimline semi-acoustics! I didn't realize- this appeared in the SLM ad flyer that just showed in the mail today!

Wait- never mind. I just realized the sale prices ended July 31, 1977.

Heh, well at least this establishes for sure these models only went through 76.

That is too cool!

:up:

In the pile of stuff Tom gave me I think there are some of the SLM in-house news magazines. Guess I should go through them, eh?

Yes you should... the clip art drawings in there are worth it alone...

There's also t-shirts, including an Electra t-shirt- if the picture weren't so tiny & blurry It would be cool to repro that shirt...

no 2253w listed there I see... I think mine is indeed a 76 however since I took the neck off and it says 76 plain as day :-?

If enough people were interested, I would be willing to have a batch of Electra shirts screened. The place that I use has a 25-shirt minimum, so that would be quite a few. Do we have 25 Electra fans here? I'd be happy to sell them as a not-for-profit venture, cost plus shipping. Would that be a trademark violation at this point?

I'd like to see the original shirts first, but it might be easier to get a crisp logo from an old brochure or hangtag.
