Question
MODEL X210, serial #13907/all black front and back gold bridge and frets/how old is this? mint 100% showroom new

Answer
Thanks for writing in, you do have a great guitar and dating it from the serial is about impossible for some years. You may already know the Electra Guitars were part of the law suit from Gibson in the 1970s and 1980s. Record keeping was not perfect and the company moves from Japan to Korea then become an
amp.company. Yes Electra has a wild history.
I might be able to get you some more information if you can send me photos of the guitar. The head stock and the pick ups have clues. Did you ever pull the pick ups and see what was stamped on the back? So if you can send the pictures that will help, there is a lot of information on these guitar and clubs and forums but little dating info.
Thanks Kevin .

Guitars and cats make life so much better. Playing the guitar is a wonderful thing, fixing you guitar is not that hard. I have played since I was a kid and started to fix guitars and the other things that needed repair. I still repair guitars for friends and myself and do enjoy it. I rebuild old guitars to their former condition, all amps and music gear. That the mystery out of where and when a guitar was made. The value of it and the difference between junk and a guitar you can grow old with. Ask me things and have some fun.

Experience

The fascination with electric guitars is the top for me. I fix amps, wiring and put the things that fall off back on. The way to really set a guitar up and make it a player. Buying a guitar is an art, and good amps that will get out that tone we all look for, Zen guitar and amplifier is a way to approach it. Better is no worry ask an expert.
