This one came from the same dealer that originally purchased the Ceruse that sold last week. Believe he has liquidated his inventory and they are popping up on ebay. This white one I believe was the last one he had.

As I suspected the dealers website is gone. This was the last Electra he had. I'm not stepping in on MAP price as it's an auction. Assuming new condition, Would be a great deal for someone if they can get it around that price.

How does the neck profile on this compare to something like an x950 Vulcan (which is on the fat side)?

Thats an issue with a lot of companies, they might state the nut width but that's it as far as the neck specs go.

The neck on the Omega and Omega Primes is a 50's style C, ie a chunky C.

Full specs are on our website. Check the additional information tab if the below link doesn't drop you there.

Thank you

We're working on a redesign of parts of our site and this is one of them. Some of the info currently requires some hunting - and the specs should be a lot easier to find.

IMO the five way is something that really adds the these guitars. I had taken mine out of my 310 and went back to it because I felt certain sounds were missing. I now have two 310s one 340 and one 350 all with original five ways.

Couldn't agree with you more. I have an original on my X930 and really like it. We put the 5-way on the upcoming Invicta coupled with 2 volume knobs - so we can get 7 unique combinations and a bunch more tones depending how the volumes are worked. We demo'd at NAMM and the variety of tones was incredible.

We had a dealer shut their doors. Only had 2 Electras left from his stocking order that must have been liquidated with the rest of his stuff. I couldn't validate the condition since he had them, but the white one was a steal.

Correct that the new 5-way design is different, but the tones are much more diverse than the originals. The additional volume knob adds to this as well.
