Shown with my X935cs. The X240 looks great now! I'm keeping the little dings, I like it that way. Except for the black toggle ends, it's 100% original again. From tuners to pickguard. I bought rounded toggle ends instead of the stock style, it fits better in the case that way. Can't see it too well in this photo, but it's clean enough to eat off of.

Thanks to everyone who helped along the way! I really dig the guitar. :D

8) Those are some nice axes and they are great to gig with as both have numerous tonal settings. Looks great. Jam on and have a great Electra Holiday Season. :up: :up:

...clean enough to eat off of, eh? Perhaps you should let a professional be the judge of that, hmmm? You already have the address, just send it along end we can get to the bottom of this in no more than 8-14 months, I'm thinking... :rofl:

Perhaps I have a future as the Jorg of the Electra Forums. What say you, John?

Very, very nice. An X240 has been on my wish list for some time now. Great job.

I'm a sucker for antique finish. Yours looks real purty.

Thanks guys. It looks a lot better in person. They got it right with that antique finish, didn't they? So cool looking.

And Steve, I'll bring it to Electra Fest one year when I can come!!! You can eat off it then. :D
