This is in WV on CL. $150.00 is not a bad price for one of these.

Whenever I see an Electra "Lady" guitar listed, I always think of Kenny Rogers singing the Commodores song "Lady". :lol:

Picked it up, it's a solid 8/10 condition, but the tremolo is screwed down and the tremolo bar hole is broken. So I need to source a replacement trem in the same good shape as the rest of the guitar.

The OEM trems on these are pretty chunky and I was lucky to find a spare for my X195 that didn't break the bank; I had a Wilkinson 5+1 in the hole up till then - fitted perfectly.

Ladies are cool.....
