    Well, not really:)

    I'm having a hard time finding info on a bass of mine.

    It's an Electra Jazz, but I can't find a serial number or model number and the info on the web is very much lacking.

    Anyway, from what I can SEE, it's an ash body with a gorgeous 3 tone sun burst finish, maple neck, rosewood fretboard with mother of pearl or abalone inlays, not sure, has 2 'guitar sized' humbuckers, and a passive eq.

    The thing plays wonderfully and I've had since high school, but can't find any info on it. Any help would be appreciated.

    On the Herons.ca Electra website. You have to dig around. http://www.herons.ca/

    One of the links I posted has an explanation of how to date your Electra usong the serial number.
