Hey Group,

I'm a newbee here at TEF. Please excuse my ignorance to start. I have an Outlaw x710 guitar that someone trashed and i'm in the process of restoring. I've owned 4 of the 700 series, and at least 3 other Omegas, several X310s, an X330 and Rockstrad... and they are clearly worth the effort. Besides a gold rattle can paint job, some bozo shaved the headstock veneer off my guitar and my plan was to create a new black veneer with white wateslide decal with the Electra Logo and peace sign. Unfortunately, I haven't found a crisp black and white on the web that I can use. I have a 1976 6-page brochure, but that hasn't helped either. If anyone can post a Jpeg, that would be wonderful. I'd be glad to share the final coverted negative image Jpeg for anyone else wanting it.
Thanks in advance, ipdog1

I dug around and found the highest resolution headstock shots I took. They're not black and white, but if you can't find what you're looking for maybe you can make these what you need in photoshop.

Hey Electrasrus... THANKS for the photos. I'm having a buddy of mine in TN strip the Outlaw and give it a pro refinish. He said it was the strangest thing.. .,the Outlaw seemed to him to be made of OAK! Must be a type of wood found in the far east? Anyway, if I can figure out how, I'll post some photos of the resto.

Regards,

Ipdog
