Lots of potential here... maybe you've got some pickups just lying around, or maybe you've been wanting to hot rod an Electra for a while. I got this one in pieces, and after finally getting the bridge straightened out, I reassembled and found that this one has got really nice action and deserves to live again! I was able to find the saddles, but I haven't been able to locate the receptacle for the trem bar, maybe something can be fabricated. The only paint missing is on the (bottom) points, it has some dings here and there, but looks pretty good, I'd give it a strong 7.5-8:

Has all the covers including the output jack plate, correct neck plate and neck screws:

Made in May of 1984, the headstock has some chips, but we've all seen a lot worse, missing string tree:

For those who'd part it out, here is a list:

Tuners..............................................$20
Neck w/ nut and TRC.......................$25
Neck Plate w/ screws..........................$5
Back covers......................................$10
Body.................................................$20
Bridge Saddles..................................$10 each
Bridge Plate........................................$5
Trem Block/Springs/Claw...................$5

Total..............................................$150 (most prices above are conservative)

I'd like to get $90 for it, another $30 for the well used original case:

I've been burned on my shipping estimates lately, but I'll say $30, or you can pick it up at EF2012. Tell me if you're intrigued... or if I'm crazy! Mike.

If yyzrondo doesn't go for it, I would be interested. I think I have all the parts to make it whole, except the trem bar. I do have a machinist friend for that though.

Trem bar.. Stewmac, 6mm imported.

I, however, have a Westone one.... awaiting a guitar to put it on :(

Yyzrondo is going to take this clean Dynasty off my hands, and I'll hand it to him at ElectraFest. Thanks for all the interest guys. It actually plays better than my Futura, hopefully he'll have years of fun with it! Mike.
