Tim's x935cs is available right now with the added bonus of a Missouri MMK53 to be installed (by way of Minnesota) and a couple other project type tweaks...

The 53 was sent out to him on Friday so he should have that by Wednesday at the latest.

I haven't had contact with him in over a week so I couldn't say what he is up to, JD. If I am remembering correctly he was looking to find stock parts or close replacements for the bridge and tailpiece as well.

Tim has pictures of his guitars for sale on the Facebook Electra Page.

I'm looking for the Facebook Electra page to view these images...
Can't find the page... I did get to view a number of excellent photos of Carmen Electra however.

Try searching understand groups in Facebook for "Electra Guitars". It is an open group but with the newer FB group policy you have to get added by the administrator to join. I think anyone can view the group.

Alright, I may as well throw my at in the ring, too.

Although I have a variety of different styles and makers, I really have a thing for the Phoenix. But here's my confession: I'd really like to take a Spectrum FX out for a test drive. ;-)

Of all the Electras I have more than half are Phoenixes. I think a nice early white FX would be right at home with the rest. Watching the progression of the Phoenix from the beginning of production up thru the Spectrums really shows innovation, and how Electra was progressing as a company. I get a real kick out of it. :-)

This.

The Phoenix/Spectrum range do it for me, to, though it is the Spectrum 12 string that was made for Trevor Rabin that is my Holy Grail.....

... that, and a blue/gold Raider I, the Lady and a reverse Futura that I'd find room for should someone be kind enough to donate them to me. :D

Will get some photos up but have the 310 I bought new. Hardly played and has 4 modules. Black with original case. Some color wear on the gold from time only. Still works great.
