I've been gathering up more pics and found a few more variations.... 8)
I should be able to get back to this shortly... I've got space cleaned up, so should have room...

I can get you a photo of a branded x720... other than an odd silver-colored nut, it's all original and pretty clean. Should be able to post it for you in a day or two.

Mick - do a search for electra and look at the Phoenix down the page from Pueblo Colorado (they list it as an x185 but it is H-S-S config.) - is this an x190GR? The model listings in our Electra index of models does not list this color. Only colors listed are Silverstone, Blue Burst, Brown and Black. http://used.guitarcenter.com/usedgear/index.cfm

I guess it is another for your list. Ron

according to the '84 catalog, the x190 was only available in SS and I can find no picture evidence to prove otherwise (I have pics of both '83 and '84 versions). SS is known to have different looks under different lighting, especially flourescent vs natural..., and a greenish hue is one of the looks... while this is a '83 version, the color is much lighter than the other '83 GR models I have pics of in similar lighting situations. the GR is more of a dark gray with a green hue.

I vote this is a x190SS.

still working on this... I've actually grabbed new or better pics of 15 model variations since the start of the year, 8 in the last 5 days!

I have a huge backlog now to start putting into the DB so I can hopefully get something published soon....

wow, I was a slacker! I actually made some updates last sept, but hadn't realized I hadn't posted for this in a long while...

finally making some progress. I think I have around 1400 pictures catalogued now, and still have 345 more to go in my "need to add" folder.... I knocked out about 100 in the last day or so....

Invicta X260L: I may be the purchaser of the one referenced above as having been on eBay last year!
Bought it as a birthday present for a dear friend, a lefty, who has had a righty display model Invicta for ages.
I'll drop him a line and see if he can send a photo or two.
