I am guessing that this is an x310 that has been stripped on the top.

I thought about it but I was looking for more MPC modules for my Outlaw so I've saving for that right now. Looked like a bit of work to put it right.

Good luck! I hope it plays great. I am still looking for a great deal on an original LP style Electra (MPC or non-MPc) not a project example. I loved playing the ones that I have had my hands on.

Are you going to repaint this one black to match its original finish or are you leaving it alone?

Coming along nicely. Pickups worked and five way did in just three positions. I don't really like them so I'm going with 3 way, 57 classics and coil tap on neck. Pictures soon.

Oh junk in a hat, it's my favorite kind of thread! :love: :hyper: Love seeing guitars get the "new life" treatment.

The more pics and details, the better we like it Shack!
