Not mine, I just hound the Craigslist in my area 3-6 times a day (yes, I'm addicted to "window shopping" there :P). I haven't seen a lot of MPC's now and that Gibson/Epi diamond looking symbol on the headstock as well as the high number of controls on the front makes it not look like an Electra, but you never know.

No, and it's not an MPC, but it may well have been distributed by SLM at some points. I've seen these under the brand Memphis, but there were a couple of different ones.

I haven't heard them, although circa 1970 effects are bound to be rough. Then again, I have a news clipping of an interview with Les Paul, and he's holding one! SO they can't be all bad.

I have one of these in pieces, but it's really rough, I couldn't speak to quality level if it were together. I'm guessing early japanese import, teisco-like, but I don't really know.
