No matter what brand or guitar maker that you are a fan of -

It appears that a Gibson Les Paul neck has been installed on this Electra MPC –

:huh: Looks like it may still be the original neck as the inlays etc look correct. I would surmise that someone replaced the headstock overlay with one off a Gibson les paul. question is was the old one removed or was this one just glued in place over the original Electra one. Looks like someone moved the MPC switches and control knobs around also so who knows if all that is in working order. Should have left a good thing alone to begin with I think. :bawl: :bawl: :bawl:

I would agree. it's the stock neck. in the pic of the back, you can see that the finish has been redone on the back of the headstock too, so someone went to some lengths to change the logo over.

Auction states that the overlay was changed out....

we've seen others in the past with this "revised" knob set-up so it's pretty amazing that the blue connectors are still there...

would be interesting to see inside the control cavity to see if the MPC switches are still wired....

Not to mention the possible combination of Gibson / Electra neck inlay mother of pearl and changed out tuners:
