um, i have an electra x650, and i was wondering, does electra make westone, or vica verca? cos on the head it says "electra" with a symbol and then "westone" or are they like, diff names for the same company? it was my grandfather's bass and i wasn't interested in bass until after he died, so i couldn't ask him anything about it. if anyone has any info on it, lemme know, i'm still kinda learning and am trying to find out more about my bass. thanks! :)

Electra guitars were made in Japan and imported and sold by (SLM) Saint Louis Music from 1971 - 1984. In early 84 they joined up with Westone another Matsumoku made guitar also distributed by SLM. They were only called Electra/Westone in the year 1984 as they become just Westone in late 84. If your bass says Electra/Westone it is most likely an early 1984
model.
