Happy holidays to you all. I wish you all excellent health, family and lastly finances this year.

Here is hoping you have an electra or two, or some parts for one to restore, or something to plug it into and enjoy. These are still an affordable hobby, and quite amazing one can find and buy such a well-made Japanese guitar so cheaply. Yes, they go more than they did 15-20 years ago, but they are going maybe a little less than 5-10 years ago - still a good deal. Yeah, I know people are asking about twice or more than what the typically go for on ebay, but they still aren't typically getting it. I picked up a pretty nice one for under $200 and I just missed a nice deal on an MPC on ebay because I was outbid at the last moment only last night. And a friend on the forum just picked up a couple of phoenixes for $250 that need some cosmetic help, and they may be for sale and others too. Bargains can be had - and I hope you all get them for Christmas.

More important than the guitars are each other, so be well and be happy in what you do.
