    Yup, an x420 it is then. Very nice 335 style guit. How long are you planning on keeping it?

    My x410 needs a friend, you dig? :lol:



    Picked up a RockStrad to complete the trilogy. Hope to get a pic or two up in a week or so.

    :cool: Yeah, sorry--I picked it up in a music store in Lansing, MI 23 years ago and it ain't goin' nowhere!

    I'm actually down an Electra or two myself--I sold a sunburst MPC back in 2010, and am on the lookout for a blond Invicta and often think about picking up another Workingman. Workingman's a great guitar to carry along as a backup on gigs, but mine's set up for Nashville tuning right now.

    Never found a bolt-on copy that could hang with my '70 LPC sustain-wise..... 'til now.

    I have an Electra Dan Armstrong copy, but the neck was warped, and I'm not sure where the body and parts are now. I'll have to find that and put it back together soon.

    I love it. Lots of usable tones with the EQ. With the phase and tap as well, it's great. It'll do beast :cool:

    I'm in! One of my all-time favorite guitars, and was my #1 more years than I can count (some people thought I was nuts, until they played it or heard it!).

    Mine was originally black, but it's been stripped and refinished with satin lacquer. The tuners are Gibson Deluxe, the pups are out of a 1973 or so Gibson LP, and the knobs came off a 60's Vox amp. (sorry, can't post pix right now).

    I scored a 420x! Great guitar!, needed some help, and pickups. I put a set of Duncan P-Rails and Tripleshot rings on it! It is my main gigging guitar now! add a pic when I get the chance

    Mid '70's...had a chance to buy Leslie West's MPC that he just traded in, nice guitar....but I bought his Marshall Major head instead 'cause I really needed an amp at the time. He also traded in a Hayman guitar...now THAT was interesting.

    Nice Guitar

    Sweet guitar man, how much does one of those set you back? I'm guessing less than you'd imagine considering the obvious build quality.

    I used to have an Electra Flying V copy, modeled after a '67 V. It was a sweet guitar!
