Welcome to the forums. The X310 MPC is one of the few I have not managed to score for my collection and is a very nice color indeed. :up:

No, right in the middle closer to Nashville. I use the phase a lot and keep it about 7- 71/2. Theres about 3 or 4 on ebay now if you want another one. The members here will help keep an eye out if you are looking. And if you havent heard yet, Electra guitars are being made again and look better than ever. :up:

Welcome slmguy. :-)

That a really nice model... hope to see some pix of it.

I'm in Summertown, in Lewis County, if you know where that is...

This is a great Forum, slm. Loads of good info and a very helpful membership.

Here's my '75? I'm not sure of the year, but i have not seen another black X-310 with the openbook headstock like mine. Here's some pics.

Here's my son on stage at church with the X-310:

The Black X-310 came with the phase shifter and the treble/bass expander.

Hey Texsunburst, nice collection of those three but it looks like you need a cut-out style headstock to go with them.

A very nice well kept looking group indeed. I think it is a 75'. I have the modified open book. Very nice collection. Did you buy them new?

8) 8) Very nice bunch of MPC models there. I would agree late 75 or early 76 then they used the transitional cutout style then the wave headstocks. Thanks for the pics. :up: :up:
