:huh: :huh: Best guess is maybe a Washburn body with an Electra neck if it is a bolt on neck. Difficult to see my young apprentice......... so says the yoda Electra guru... :huh: :huh: :huh:

Sort of has a reverse Ibanez Iceman point on the tail. Naturally I figure any wave headstock on a weird body is a neck swap.

Every time I say a neck is swapped onto a different body it turns out to be a set neck instead. I should just keep my mouth shut. Regardless, I like the looks of the body - very unique - and the MMK's will do it justice. Nice binding too BTW - More pics please.

there were some other makers that used the wave, but none as prevalent as SLM Electra.
