I can't find any reference as to body material in any of the Model Index descriptions. I've seen a couple of ebay sellers refer to them as Mahogany bodied, but somehow I doubt that.

Does anybody know what the material is?

I'm guessing Ash, but would like to be certain before I bid on one.

They vary because they're from different sources. Mahogany is very typical for bodes, the top varies- it's often laminate (plywood). But so are most LP style guitars by most makers.

If you want t look at what it's made of, pull one of the pickups, you can see a cross-section of the top and the wood uinderneath.

x189,

Thanks for the info. Sorry I just jumped in with two feet without introducing myself.

I'm lookin' at Electras on ebay though, so I can't physically inspect them. Just have to... "trust"... the seller. More likely, go by their feedback.

I did have an Electra, X175JB, 1983. I thought it compared very favorably with my Highway 1 Strat... for me, high praise indeed. :wink:

All my guitars have been stolen and my 1973 Martin D-18 and amps are with a long lost friend, so I'm building up my collection again.

Again, thanks, Dave.

Oh no! That sucks!

Well, I'm glad you're looking at Electras again. They really are an undiscovered bargain.
