I remember seeing some Crate amp adds in 86' or 87' In the guitar mags. Dont have a date on the Crate electra guitar.

The Crate Electras was the much more recent - not sure but probably in the 2000s. I think they are chinese, not familiar with all of the models. They could be korean - which would probably be better. It was the last use of the electra name prior to the new Electra guitars ran by Ben Chafin and Co in 2013.
