Would like to get $500 for it, with original hardshell case. Look at that FLAME! :D Clean as a pin, this thing gleams from frets to finish, solid as a rock and sounds great. Feels best out of all of my Electra's, I can't explain why but it just plays easy. 100% original. Birth date is November 25th, 1978.

Great condition, among the nicest one's I've seen for sale recently. No faded headstocks, no extra screw holes, no replacement anything. This one has the rare factory Azusa bridge (allow for almost perfect intonation and they're a lot better at holding it in tune, they rock slightly during a bend, genius design). There are nicks and bings around the guitar, a chip in back, see the photos which are worth 1000 words! Check out my Photobucket for detailed pics, click here...

Must move this one on, can't afford to keep it. PM me if you're interested.

I've seen several of these with a milky looking, faded headstock. Crazy as that is. My Outlaw has a semi hazy headstock, I don't know what causes it but they look faded or something.

Look at this X330 which just sold for $527.01! http://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-Electra-X330-Electric-Guitar-Case-with-2-MPC-Modules-LAWSUIT-MODEL-/231185064856?_trksid=p2047675.l2557&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&nma=true&si=KhlurZgazN1dHmvNAK%252BnBcp4vac%253D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc

Mine completely blows that one away, I must say.

At the heal or butt of the neck, where is joins the body, does it flatten out there or have an arch? First pic or second pic?

We found a square vs rounded example on a pair of x910's at Electrafest 2012.

Do you remember if the neck profile seamed different on those two 710s?
Those pics are from my 340 and 350 and the profiles are a little different. Im interested in the 330 for sale but would like to know that its got the same profile as my 340 which I consider to be a 60s slim taper.

The neck is thinner, yes. I can measure it if you like.

And TWO X910's?! :-? :love: I'd like to see just ONE! :D

This X330 has better playability than my other Electra's, even better than my Endorser. My theory is that it's the Azusa bridge they used for some of these. Anyone have one of these with the Azusa birdge, can you relate?

I bought two original all brass bridges for my 310s. Never heard of the bridge your mentioning. Is it just the wider bridge kind of like a Nashville?

See the pics, it is the wider bridge, yes. It came stock on some of these MPC's. It's designed with a slightly curved bottom where the base of the bridge rests on the bridge pins. So during a bend, instead of the strings pulling flat, it will very slightly move during a bend and then return after the bend. Great idea, seems to work very well.

Soon will be posting this elsewhere, wanted to give first shot to my forum buddies.

If you have an interest, lemme know asap. :up:

Not a lot nicer than this one despite it's nicks and dings, it's gorgeous and 100% original.

Last chance for anyone who's been thinking about it, it'll soon go on Reverb.com for $530.00.

Still only $500 plus shipping for any of you forum buddies. This is a good price for a great guitar. Will probably place it on Reverb towards the end of the week if no one bites!

Lowered price, I'll sell it for $475 to any forum member, plus shipping.

Must admit, I'm surprised that I haven't sold this yet :-? :huh: Such a great condition, all original MPC guitar with original case! Seriously, I'm shocked. Have it on Reverb and CL, just people asking and not buying. Is the market that soggy right now? Guess so. :roll: I just don't want to do the Ebay route if I can help it...

So... anyone on the fence, this should help.

Sold to the bearded fellow in the corner. :D Now he can be Ace Frehley every week night with a different guitar!
