Our collection has been growing recently and we just added this beautiful X930. It was barely played and is a real gem. It came with 10 MPC modules, the factory defaults still plugged in, and all instructions. Even the Lifetime Warranty :) Wanted to share a few early pics with members of the forum.
Regards,
Gene

Looks sweet guys! Even original boxes for the modules. What were the 2 modules that this guitar was lacking?

Lovely.

Hope it was a deal. Modules have been pricey lately.

Thanks guys. The boxes list 11 avail modules. From those, it's missing the Fuzz (we have a number of those in our possession). The 12th module, not listed on these MPC boxes, would be the Compressor. The MPC pamphlets in the boxes are in near mint condition and neat to revisit. Also the bigger 3 pack MPC box was cool to see.

Do you guys at the new Electra have an MPC5 Power Overdrive module that has undergone a modification from our webmaster Thorny? From what I have heard it is well worth having one modified by him.

Actually I'm sending him one from this guitar in a few weeks. This OD is on life support so figured we'd fix it and mod it. I listened to the sound samples and was really impressed with the difference.

:up: The Thorny modded Power Overdrive is a vast improvement over the stock one no doubt. :up:

A very nice axe - congratulations on your purchase -

The MPC12 Compressor is one you will really like;

I've had one in my X340 for several years.

Also have 2 Thorny modified OD MPC's - one each for the X340 and X330.

There she is! Looks great, what a find.

Amazing my X930 is also in almost mint condition. Didn't people play these?!?!

That deep color really takes your breath away. And look at those modules!!!

Have they indicated they're doing new MPC modules? I'd be really surprise if they would do that, since they're not making MPC guitars.

Fender is doing something similar (well, not with effects, but involving wiring). It's cool, but how useful this will be is up in the air. Or should I say, how well received it will be.

The guitar comes with two cards, I believe 12 are available. Sound familiar?! :lol:

They are not going to make new mpc modules. Im just wishing for some thing that cant happen, costs are way too high to make them and since there not making new mpc models the amount of people who would be customers is also rather narrow.
