Electa Hollow Body 'New Orleans' Archtop + Hard Case

Product Description

UPDATE: I found an Electa Facebook page that had an example of this exact guitar and enthusiasts who knew all about it...

According to the experts... 

"this model is a fusion between the Epiphone Joe Pass Jazz guitar and the Gibson LC5 and was most likely made around 2000's in between the Peerless period and the opening of the Qingdao plant, many Epiphones were constructed at the Zaozhuang Saehan plant in China. Guitars from his period are considered to be of high quality and, because of the relative rareness and quality factors, are sought after by Epiphone fans and collectors". 

"These Electa’s are regarded by many as the best Gibson copies on the market. I believe this guitar is from the last production run of Electa’s made in China in the early to mid 2000’s. They appear to have ceased having a presence on the market around 2015".

They went on to sing it's praises, which I totally subscribe to. I knew this guitar was special the moment I picked it up... it plays like a dream, the build quality is impeccable and it sounds amazing. The hardware and craftsmanship, especially the inlay work is top class. It's in excellent condition with almost no signs of play or wear. 

This guitar represents incredible bang for buck. Trust your ear... come and check it out. 

Comes with a hardcase.
