    Hello all im new here and have a question. I just aquired a Electra bass and dont know anything about it. As far as i can tell it looks like a 1977 Long Necker 2271 would this be correct?

    Unfortunately for you the rules: http://www.talkbass.com/forum/faq.php
    State that 'price checking' are, like the classifieds, for Supporting members only. (see rule #3.)

    I didn't make the rules but I understand it's to keep the classifieds and other parts of the site non-viable for scammers and spammers. It appears to be working.

    If you buy/sell instruments regularly, or are a bassist, a supporting membership could be very good for you... but if I were you, I just randomly had a bass like that, I'd search TalkBass and other online resources for price benchmarks. As it is a vintage instrument I wouldn't know where to begin... even if the rules didn't prohibit me.

    Good luck - and FWIW I think it's a gorgeous bass. :)

    I think someone modded one of these recently on this site: http://www.talkbass.com/forum/f8/electra-longnecker-thunderbucker-=-electra-longbucker-900000/

    Here is the search results for 'longnecker' on TB... hope this helps ;)
    http://www.google.com/cse?siteurl=w...Search#gsc.tab=0&gsc.q=long necker&gsc.page=1

    EDIT: Before I was simply informing you of some terms of use for the site and some of my opinions on them... I assumed it was an honest mistake, we all make those.
