Does anyone own an "Electa" guitar? I googled it, and from what I got, they're from the 70s made by some company that had to do with Ibanez.

Anyways,

I was at this music store today, and they had an Electa Telecaster copy in a walnut finish, which I thought was odd. It's fairly beaten up, and you can tell it's old be looking at it. I plugged it in and was really liking the sound, and the feel of this guitar. Not to mention it looked stunning. I've been in the market for a Telecaster for the past little while, and I was very surprise to look at the price tag on this beast to see that it was only $99.

Now, I can afford this thing, and I'm really liking it. Does anyone have any experience with these "Electa" guitars, though? From what I got from the guitar in the hour I was playing it, it's quite the amazing guitar. But, is this gonna be falling apart in a week if I buy it?

Or, should I just go away now?

(I've played MIM Teles, and I actually preferred this over one... don't hurt me?)

Well, I'm just looking to see if anyone has any experience with these things, so I can know about a future problem I may have BEFORE I buy it.

If I can't find anyone who has experience with it, I'm just gonna go ahead and buy it. Even if something goes wrong that's not worth fixing, it'll be a good wall ornament. : l

Dude it's a hundred bucks, if you like it so get it. Doubt any1 will have experience with it, try a thorough google search. You played it, you liked it I can't see what more any1 else can tell you. Something like that allows you to mod it without having to worry about the repercussions.

I have a 1980 Electra LP copy. It's a great playing and solid guitar. I recently had it setup as I was thinking of selling it. I forgot just how nice it plays. I'll keep it a while longer. It's my first guitar. Bought it new in 1980.

I have a Electra X90 LP copy and its a pretty versitile guitar depnding on the amp setup. I got mine from my uncle and he got his in 85 and hasnt touched it until I found it a while back bad it was in alright shape. All I can say is dont depend on it in the long run (2-3 years)

If it plays well for $100 (and they don't exist anymore) then by all means buy it. Vintage wood is always a good thing.

After that get a better amp.
