I can't remember seeing one like this before. Sort of a P-Bass body with a telecaster type head. http://www.ebay.com/itm/1970s-Electra-B ... 500wt_1321

there was a member on here briefly who had one...

it's sort of a toss up on whether or not its SLM or PCM. The 80's PCMs that had the "Round E" logo, seemed to be a taller/stretched logo printed on, as opposed to the late 60's early 70's logo on the aluminum plate...

this on is nearly identical (if not identical) to the early 70's Aria one.

I believe there were several early SLM ones that we have no catalog shots of...
2246 and 2255 Dan Armstrong copy
the EB2D bass I have

others that do not show in catalog but have SLM characteristics
a blonde Jazz (this one is early 70's built)
a sunburst P (this one is early 70's built)
Grabber bass copy (this one looks to have the tall/stretched logo, but the pics don't look like they are in proportion. it's original tuners are the same as what was on the early corsairs and phoenix basses...) so it could fit in either category...

always :)

I just haven't updated the web page yet. I have about 50 new photos I need to go through and see if they were new adds, or better pics of what I already have....

...and THAT is a vote to not split ElectraFest into 2 venues. The pool of instrument variety gets diluted and I'm not cetain we want that.

There's that, but there's also that I can't really afford to travel much further than to Arthur's place. And then that makes things much more expensive for everyone up north.
