Electra Basses..

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by ZenG, Jan 1, 2016.

  1. I have the opportunity to go look at an Electra bass. I don't know what model it is or anything.
    Guy says it's similar to a Gibson SG.

    I read on the net that the man who runs Dean guitars resurrected the Electras a while back.
    So I was going to go on the net and have a look at the bass department.

    There is an official Electra site but when I pull it up nothing happens except the name appears.

    Know anything about Electra? or what's going on with the company?

    I had a EB-3 Electra clone back in the 70's, had the cool slotted headstock. I think the neck twisted on it if I remember right

    Never played an SG clone but the Electra Phoenix P Basses are excellent.
  4. Electra were owned by St Louis Music and lots of the guitars were built by Matsumoku but I think that was in the 80's.
    There's a Electra/Westone owners club on TB who might shed some light.
