For sale is an awesomely funky vintage Japanese guitar made by Electra. This is the X350 from the MPC line of guitars Electra started making in the late 70's. Due to the serial number this instrument seems to be from 1981, but we cannot confirm that with absolute certainty. This is their Les Paul style guitar and features both an overdrive and phaser MPC (Modular Power Circuits) which plug into cartridge slots in the guitar and are then controllable via switches and knobs on the front of the guitar. The overdrive MPC adds a nice color to the tone, not a lot of boost, but a great "leave on" effect that adds a solid picking response and breakup. The phaser is truly fantastic, with a sweet and warm phasing tone that is easily controllable and sounds excellent at every setting. The tone of the pickups themselves is also fantastic, with true humbucker thickness but a more cutting clarity than most. The 5 way selector switch also gives you more tonal variety. The X350 is the top of the line in terms of aesthetic styling, with it's beautiful top, gold hardware, clear pickguard, and tortoise shell binding across the body this is a real looker of a guitar. The neck is on the thinner side but still full and sits well in the hand. Cosmetically this guitar is in good condition, with some dings and scratches across the top and back as well as finish wearing and chipped sections along a few of the edges. The frets are visibly worn but still have plenty of life left to them. This is a fantastic and very unique instrument that has a voice totally its own and is extremely versatile. It plays great, sounds great, feels great and will stand out from the sea of like instruments.
