Please comment, I'd like to hear from you all on these.

These came in my literature haul before our little baby popped out.

Is this the only ad where it's called an "Endorser"?



Have you heard of the Phoenix "Patriot"? Well, here they are...

I have a ton more of these.

Hey Admin Moderator folks... should I post them all on here, or do you want them emailed for use on the website?

Anybody?

I won't upload them if we're not interested, no big deal as I'm just gauging interest (I though that you guys would love this stuff)!

You have more? Very cool stuff, we'd love to see it, and yes they should be available somewhere (perhaps in the index) for future reference. The Endorser sheet is probably from mid 1982, before the Cherry Sunburst was available (earliest serial number I've seen for a CS is December 1982). The first Endorsers were Blackbursts, with a anniversary plate, big dots, no belly cut, Peacesign logo. Thanks for posting, Mike.

Good input men, I'll see if Admin wants these on the site. I have a TON of these, it's pretty cool.

Hey admin... where should I email my files?

Maybe we could add a topic to the board index like the one that was added for the new Electra company that could have the catalogs and sales literature posted in it.

I'm not sure how this forum works, but I know that some of them don't like to have a lot of pictures, because it eats up space. What do you think, moderators?

:D They are so cool, wait till you see them all. They're one page full color fliers with black and white backs describing the instruments.

I've never seen them before, pretty cool. They came in an Electra folder that I'd never seen, either. I have that scanned in as well.

Just waiting on a moderator to get back to me, so that I know what route to take.

I can host them on my East Coast server if necessary, I'd be happy to do it.

As a devoted Anniversary collector, those scans make my heart leap.

That's great stuff. A section devoted to this type of material would be appreciated.

Well, there hasnt been a lot of action on the Other Vintage Forums section of the site for a while. Any way to use that? If no one objects of course. Or use a link to Jacks Place. Info like that is rare to guys like us.
I know back when I got my Electra the only hand outs were the 77 catalog.
