For anyone looking for an x810, this one on ebay doesn't seem like a terrible deal:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/1978-Electra-MP ... SwnipWW298

Despite the seller's statement to the contrary, this guitar has been altered with dots being added to the original fretboard. The pickguard does not seem to be original either. There may be other alterations, but I haven't looked closely enough to offer any opinions.

I was watching that one before I bought mine but didn't really like the color in the binding and the dot inlays on the fretboard kind of scared me off. I've never seen the dots and tree of life both. Looks to be in pretty good shape though.

The tree of life inlays have no markers so can take some getting used to so I guess a previous owner added them to help as the vines do get a bit confusing.
