I need help finding this model Electra. The serial number is 3110615. The color is a greenish - brown. It has three control knobs, and a tremolo bar. the pickup ( 2,1,2) switch is on the top of the guitar. It says Electra Phoenix on the head stock. I have seen this set up in some models, but the color is wrong. It is similar to this guitar on youtube ( Same exact color) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZI1qbgTmEDc) in color , but no phase selector. http://i1050.photobucket.com/albums/s41 ... 62c3a1.jpg

This guitar is an X185 in graphite. It should have push pull pots on all 3 knobs. The volume knob when pulled should be coil tap, the middle knob toggles the center pickup, and the rear knob should be phase reverse. If your model does not have the phase reverse your pot may have been changed out or is possibly stuck.
