The walnut stain ones do not come up very often. Looks like it is only missing a few parts. What is going on on the back with that crack? Comes with HS case. http://www.ebay.com/itm/vintage-electra ... 3382020ce8

I'm in, although finding one of those brass volume knobs is going to be next to impossible, and I've had poor luck removing sticker residue from pickguard material in the past. That tuner ferrule wont be easy to find either. The seller tells me its been like this for almost a decade, and he doesn't have any of the removed parts anymore. He says the pickups worked then, but makes no guarantees now. Man those pickups are gunked up badly, just the way I like 'em!

I think that line in the rear photo is just a G string that didn't get removed all the way. Part of me wishes it had just a bit more road rash... call me a romantic. Best of luck to all, Mike.

Good luck Mike, I hope you get it. I never thought about that being a string!

almost looks like an ink pen mark.

for the pickguard, if you use any chemicals to try and clean the residue off, it might affect it.... I would jsut try lots of hot water. if the plastic is already scraped from the previous attempt to clean it, I'd take sandpaper to it, and go to finer and finer grits until your happy with how it looks. they were kind of a matte finish anyway....

This is only a test... had this been an actual emergency, you would have been instructed where to tune to in your area for more information.
