I need pictures of all of these models.... the ones with "x-cat" means I have a catalog pic of the model, but want a live pic. the others I just don't have... it's specific to the headstock logo as well...

so far my checklist I'm creating has 305 total Models/Variations for Electra branded guitars. covers SLM, PCM, and others... I do not include the '85+ Westones...

My goal is to create the Ultimate Visual Reference Page... and I'm only 34 pictures short of having pics of all of them (that I know of) but I'm sure more will keep turning up.....

I just sold a pretty clean red Dynasty to Rondo at EF2012, I bet he can take some nice pictures of it...

What is a X260L..? I own both versions of the Invicta. (left handed?)

What is a X280 v2? The Workingman is a pretty common model.

you'll have to scroll over to the right on my image to see any notes. V2 of the working man was the starsky and hutch laminated headstock one... I only have the headstock pic, and it will most likely be catalogued as a proto type... yeah, the x260L is the left handed model that was on the bay a while back... just hoping someone save a pic of it...

I think the highest number of variations so far is on the 2242 model... 5 so far...

this endeavor actually helped me organize and cleanup the many different areas I had saved pics... I had mostly bass pics saved, but was able to find all kinds of oddities...

The dynasty I need a pic of is the v1 Dynasty with the Electra (bird) logo. yours/Ron's at eFest was the v2 model with the Electra (bird) Westone name on the headstock....

yes, my list goes to that level.... :toopid:

refreshed my needed list... I have some marked red. I do not think these ever existed? thoughts? the '84 catalog only shows the x190ss available, none of the other colors are listed... would love to see if they existed in an '83 catalogue...
