awesome... I believe this to be a missing link so to speak. Early SLM before they started doing the Electra catalogs. There's an Aria short scale just like it...

I'll say the tuners are closed, and it may not have fret marker dots on the binding/edge.

And if you are interested in selling, let me know :)

Never seen one of these before but I like it. I would agree on early model. Looks great. 8) 8)

Welcome to the forums DP. You indeed have a rare one there. Congrats on the find. You may be able to find something over on the Vintaxe site about it. Steve has the largest vintage Electra catalog group available.

And, hey...I'm #2 if you want to sell.

I ended up with this through a trade shortly after the poster put it up on here. Anyways, it's now up on ebay in case anyone is interested:
