Greetings,
I'd like to find an X210 double cut if anyone has one they'd like to part with for a responsible price.

Thanks,
John

I have an X210 for sale-but I don't know what you mean by double cut....as far as I know they are all LP style,setneck,wave headstock...

the very last version of the x-210 was 1.5 cut and did not have the 5-way rotary anymore... but a regular selector, along with a switches near the knobs for the other functions...

there's a mis-labelled pic here...

That's the version I have,thought the ones with the rotary switches were the Omegas.... :blush:
I'll post some pics in a little while.....
Here's some pics,lots of playwear-no closet queen but plays and sounds great,all original except incorrect TRC

I think they ran out of Omega TRC's :)
The Omega is the setneck, and the "Tone Spectrum" circuitry provided by the rotary was replaced with the selector and 2 micro switches, the same way it was in the x960mpc...

No Arthur... the X930 Dot neck Vulcan (which happens to have a three way switch instead of the 5 way rotary) is considered the 'Dicky Betts' model, because of the advertisement he is in with it. That Vulcan (along with the X960 Ultima) were the last of the MPC's produced. Cheers, Mike.

Thanks for catching that one Mike. You Sir are correct on this subject. These late models and transitional models get me confused sometimes or mabe it's just old age. Thanks for the correction and clarification on this one. Arthur :up:
