Hi, I recently bought an Electra/phoenix X185 project guitar on eBay and would like to restore it to original. I'm looking for the OEM pickups (H-S-H) and bridge. I'm guessing the humbuckers are MMK45's and the bridge a Bendmaster? Not sure of the single coil model#. I probably shouldn't have bought the project, not having any parts, but I got the body and neck for peanuts and couldn't stand to see it go. :love: I've been scouring eBay for a couple weeks, to no avail. I guess this is a test of patience. Any info or parts offerings will be welcome. Thanks.

OK; the Westone Spectrum GT is pretty much the same guitar but the bridge on the X185 looks to be a standard strat style, which makes life a lot easier - I whacked a Wilkinson 5+1 into the hole on my X195 and it works fine.
The pup's on my GT are MMK 45s and an unmarked single - you will have to wait till one comes up on the bay!
