It's a 1984 Electra Westone X185!

A pretty rough one. Although actually I think the overspray on the back is pure art.

This one needs help- body and neck are there, and with some work more of that purple latex paint can be removed (shudder). The hardware is all gone, it'll need a bridge, neckplate and tuners. Frankly I'd mount a hardtail bridge (like an X130) and call it a day. But to help this one back to life, I've thrown in a pair of MMK45's, which is what this guitart originally had. Add a modern strat single coil in the middle and your X185 will return to H-S-H glory. (and I'm happy to help with wiring).

I told you some of these projects were ugly. The last ugly one turned out to be a jewel in the rough.
