Hello to all!

I am a guitar newbie, as well as a electra newb! I recently got an x189 or x185 from as the Matsumoko.org guy calls it; epray. It looks just like the avatar that x189 player uses.

It came in great shape, from a dealer in Wisconsin, I got it in, tuned it, and plugged it in, twisting the knobs to see what is what. Great tones from the top knob, volume I think, but the other knobs don't seem to have much effect. I opened it up on the back just to see if there was any corrosion or rust, loose wires or broken solder connections. Everything looks good, did not test with a volt/ohm or anything that technical. (Don't know what to look for yet)

Hoping that someone might have a copy or a url to exactly what this thing does.

BTW, I was originally interested in a Aria pro II Stray cat, but the seller steered me to the Electra instead, stating better overall condition, and advanced electronics.

Here is the ebay link:

There is a small ding on the bottom of this guitar, just through the paint, and I have found that the Duplicolor touch up bottles at auto stores or Mass marketers in the color of Ford Cardinal Red (NG FM 306) is about a perfect dead on match for the Lipstick Red on these or at least my guitar. Hope this may be of some help to others.

Anyway, thanks to any and all whom may be of some help.
