I scored a couple of nice Electra basses in the past week and thought I'd share pictures. From all info I can find, the first appears to be a V2 2273 long necker bass. Decent condition considering it's 40 years old, picked it up on the bay for under $200:

This plays like a dream and sounds awesome, I can see why they are sought after!
The X640 will be in the next post.

I also picked up a 1982 Electra X640 V1 for $320 usd.........this bass is absolutely fantastic. Within 30 minutes of playing, it has already become one of my 3 go to basses. Again structurally sound with 33 years of cosmetic blemishes, plays like a dream.

Nice additions to my collection, I wish I could keep them all!

Thanks! I've been playing both quite a bit over the last couple of days and am extremely happy with both. The x640 is just a blast to play and the sound is awesome to say the least. I've owned probably 40-50 mostly Matsumoku made basses to compare to, along with my old Ibanezes.......the 640 is right there with the best of them!
