Howdy all,
Just signed up to the forum - I've been lurking around the ICW, El Degas, and Matsumoku forums for a few years, and figured I should login for real.
As is typical 'round these parts, I have a 'bad' habit of collecting vintage MIJ gear and guitars.
I only say it's 'bad' since I'm finding less time to play these days, and some of the guitars are collecting dust instead of stories.
Full disclosure - I'll likely divest of some soon, and I'll post to the appropriate board when the time comes.

The two current Electras in my life are a 2281 Elvin, and a 2247 SG (set neck).
So, not a huge collection, but fairly representative of some good stuff ;)

The Elvin is in great shape overall, but could really use new binding - it's intact, no missing pieces, but has dozens of small cracks all around.
Not sure if re-binding makes it less appealing to collectors?

The electric oak is decent - I restored it to OEM pots-n-pups (I, for one, LOVE those old maxons).
However, it has some damage to the upper (bass side) horn.
Looks like a strap button might have failed, and took out a chunk of wood - this happened before my time with it.
Previous owner filled it in with epoxy and stained it brown. It's not obvious at first, thankfully.

I''ll post some pics soon (am at work, but wanted to get the ball rollin').
