From the original sight -

Looks like we lost those contributions of owners models pics though, or am I missing something?

Will this be considered for the future?

Just asking.

Good job guys!

Thorny - I have the Supercharger kit installed on my X340.

Thanks,

we have a number of additional pics that are waiting to be included. however, in some cases I think there were other pics too that seem to be missing. our first goal was just to get all the model pages back online, and then to start re-filling the gaps. if it turns out we're missing pics you have copies of, we'd love the contributions!

Yep - I would like to add back in the pictures of collections. As Paul said, it will get added but I am not sure if we have the original ones. So we will get too it and very good suggestion. Thanks.

Any more suggestions? Keep them coming.

Thanks.

OK - I'll be patient for any upcoming additional information;

It looks great as it is;

Your effort is appreciated;

We all know how limited Electra information is on the 'net.

Thanks again,

Rock, the Electra page back online. At last I can browse again all the wonderful models. God I really missed it.

Man that looks good. I really dig the fresh new interface.
Thanks to everyone who helped in getting that puppy up and running.

Now we have the Electra site, the Westone site, the Univox site, plus this one
that covers the Arias and some of the others.

This family of web sites covering the Matsumoku era is coming along fine
as more info about them comes in from the 4 corners of the globe.

There is another one on the horizon that will cover some technical aspects
of the Electra - Phoenix models. That is the one X189 is working on.

I'm looking forward to seeing the wiring options which are right up my alley.
And the finishing tips that all guitarists should know something about.

Yes, today is a good day for uncle Mat lovers around the world.

If the world leaders would take up a hobby like this, wars would be obsolete. :D

I was looking at the pic of the X270 on the web site....does not look loike the x270 in the 1981 Electra Catalog that you have posted on this forum. Note only 3 knobs

will have to find out the answer on the 270 - the description says volume, treble, bass knob - sounds like three. But if it has a power booster (built in OD mod?) then it is possible that either the model changed, or either the catalog or picture on the website is incorrect. If it added an adjustment for the boost then that would explain a 4th knob. I will check into this. If anyone knows, now is the time to share. I have never owned one of these.

Awesome that the Electra pages are up!

John might want to add some contact info on the Rivercityamps.com page, I didn't see a link or other contact info for folks who want more info on his amps!

Thanks.

Working on it... we didn't want to use a simple mailto, but to avoid spammers we'll do it with a form submit...

Is the site missing the 2257 magnum II, or am I just not seeing it? Its my favorite Electra. If you need pics let me know.

I sent some Electra pics (X330 / X340) for the new web sight to Thorny;

Hope he got them so they can be added to the Collections page?

Thanks,
