Could be worth it but the headstock looks odd.

Ya, that headstock has something goin' on that requires some closeup pics. I've never seen that shape on any Electra, so I suspect this one was altered.

I won't be making a play for it since I already have three of these. They are indeed sweet and it took me 3 tries to get a really nice one (although the 2nd one is nearly as nice and the 1st one wasn't all that bad to begin with!).

The one brass cover that he shows looks to be in nice shape.

Maybe I'll ask him for some better pics. Wanna bet I don't get 'em?

I asked him some questions and got a prompt response and he posted more pictures. He apears to be an honest if not very informed seller with a bad camera but who knows...

It looks to me like the earliest of Peace-logo models, with a circa 75 headstock shape- a hump instead of an open book, not yet a Wave.

It's very interesting, I hope one of you guys nabs it so we can have a better look.

Hmmmm, I just now got back to this thread and the auction has ended. But I don't see any other pics -- just the original 4 pics, none of which show the headstock close up enuff. Am I missing something? :-?

When first posted the listing only had one picture. The others were added before I posted here about it.
