It has a decent starting price. Let's see where this one ends up. http://www.ebay.com/itm/1974-Electra-Fl ... 43c4221056

Don't believe that's the original bridge,looks like an Ibanez or Gibson harmonica-might have offset stud holes for added compensation. The headstock has been sanded,wrong knobs-should be witch hat style,hopefully the neck pickup is original-I like'm better with both clear top Maxon's. Regret selling mine,this ones cleaner....

8) Well if anyone scores this one and wants to put a G***0n trc on it I could use the Electra TRC for mine. I agree that the harmonica bridge may not be original although Electra did have the harmonica bridges available for purchase. Someone needs to grab this one. The necks are killer and they sound great. :look: :look: :up: :up:

Yes, the bridge appears cockeyed because of the offset stud holes. I do believe that this set up is original and some of the early models (prior to 1977) came this way from the factory. For what it is worth, I have seen another flying wedge set up exactly like this one except the headstock was black. It was interesting to note that both guitars did not have serial numbers but they had what I believe was the model number 2236 stamped on the neck plate.

Peace,

Slick

People avoid using other brand names so these posts don't show up in irreverent searches.
