Serial Number 001002 !!! The 2nd guitar they made with the then new numbering system, January 1980. This could be the first X270 as the numbering system was shared with the entire Electra line, all the Phoenix's, as well as the Invictas and X250's used these numbers.

This one has many changed parts and is basically a hopped-up Invicta now. No active board, changed pickups and pots, engraving on the aluminum covers, coilcut, phase and kill switch setup. Has a reserve. Comes with a case.

Restoring this one would be possible, but good luck finding the active board. The value, as I see it, is in the low serial number. A bit of history here. I wouldn't mind seeing it up close, but its nothing I'll be bidding on. Good luck, Mike.
