So I was thinking about it, and someone should introduce Electra guitars to Jack White or Dan Auerbach. Those guys play old cheap guitars that people would have previously not cared for and then suddenly people want them! Like Jack Whites Kay Arch-top, and fiberglass Airline or Dan Auerbach's Harmony Stratotone and Harmony H78. Love them or hate them, theres no denying the market for Electras would increase substantially. What do you guys think?

Cats already out of the bag now that there are reissues. I think that will keep the price down actually. Have you read that Supro is going to restart.

Hmm idk, they could still play the old ones and make them (more) collectible. There are reissue Airline and Harmony guitars but that doesn't stop people from paying as much as they do on the old ones. I could see them playing the hollow bodies or MPC's. Ya I read about that yesterday! that's pretty cool, not like I will be able to afford any of it probably but none the less. I have been looking at some low end(<$600) tube amps lately, hopefully the new Supero ones will give me something else to consider when the time comes.

That one dude from Beck is playing an Electra Outlaw. Pretty neat. I agree, these certainly have that vintage weirdness appeal. :wink: Partly why I love them.
