This one seeming interesting... Could it be a prototype? ... or did someone use an old PCM Electra neck on another body?

Anyone have any ideas/information?

We have seen a few of these "later" Electras and there are a couple of thoughts about them going around. It could be later PCM stuff - not much is known about what they did after the early 70's. Or maybe It could be some other company put out some guitars labeled as Electra, possibly after SLM went Westone. I think most of these that we have seen were produced in Korea.

Looks a lot like the Antares AFB-26, even the same headstock.
