This model is the top of the Outlaw series and the most rare model.. They were made in Japan between 1977 and 1981 when the Japanese had something to prove and produced some of the best guitars from this era.
The 5 Way Pickup positions select the following:
1. Both pickups in series - in phase
2. Bass pickup only for rhythm
3. Both pickups in parallel and in phase with each other
4. Treble pickup only for leads
5. Both pickups in series but out of phase with each other
Some other features of the Outlaw guitar include:
Neck-thru body design with solid maple wings. Three-piece maple neck with tortoise binding and cream side dots. Very dark beautiful rosewood fingerboard with real abalone inlays. Grover Rotomatic tuners in perfect working condition. 1 11/16" Brass nut width. 24 3/4" scale length. Top-loading tailpiece with adjustable bridge. 3-ply tortoise pick guard.
I just got this guitar back from our Techs…It has new 10 gauge strings and the action is set very low for effortless playing with no buzzing at all on any fret. The solid brass nut and neck thru design contribute to great sustain. It is a beautiful warm maple color with real abalone shell inlays are just beautiful. You will love this guitar.
It comes complete with the original Electra Hard Shell Case. How do I know its an Electra Case? It still has the Electra Logo plate on it. The Back restraint strap has come loose but its still in the case. Very very nice original case for this guitar. Try to find an original case for this guitar. Impossible!
Sold as-is no returns as its vintage and used. However, check my Feedbacks. I have been hand picking my customers guitars for over 18 years now and all they have all loved the guitars I find. This one will not be an exception.
Thanks for checking out our cool Guitars.
