Hey y'all first time poster. I play piano some myself, and although I wanted to learn the guitar, after over 18 years of not doing it I'm facing the fact that it's not going to happen. Somebody gave me this 2242 Electra when I was 12 and the insides are a bit corroded. I think with some phosphoric acid on a paintbrush it should work, or you may have to repair it. But y'all would know more about that. The exterior has a chip on it and the back is scratched up a bit in one spot. I'll post pics for anyone who's interested but wanted to get a feel for whether or not anyone was. I'll sell it for $160, which I know is a steal but the statement above makes it pretty clear that I don't have much use for it. And y'all are the enthusiasts so I would want someone to enjoy it for the good price. I have not posted on eBay or anywhere else. I would just want the shipping to be paid. Don't know how much that would cost, but again I'm thinking y'all might know.
Reply or message if you're interested. Thanks

I'm in northern Louisiana.
I uploaded these files to photobucket for those who contacted me.

I've got 3 or so PMs asking for photos. I'm not gonna get greedy and ask for a higher price but there has to be some way to decide who wants the guitar. So y'all either decide amongst yourselves or open-forum style say how much you'd rather pay than the asked $160. That way I'm not pitting you privately against yourselves, you know what you've offered and I guess whoever wants it will get it.

From looking at the pictures it seems to me that the guitar you have is an x290 workingman not a 2242 super/black rock. The one and 1/2 cut 2242 guitars I have seen has white binding around the body edge. Forgive me if I am wrong but I have only looked at the pictures on my iPad.

Just about any of you would know better than I would. I was just comparing it to pics on the Electra site

It's definitely an X290 Workingman.

Yep, a Workingman. They are a bit under appreciated. I like mine a lot. $160 for one if good shape is a reasonable price.
