1978 Electra 2281 "Elvin Bishop" semihollow body electric guitar
Built at legendary Japanese musical instrument manufacturer Fujigen Gakki. 

Description:

Original: pickups, speed knobs, pots, jack, bridge, tail piece, tuners, frets, brass nut, & strap buttons.

Replaced three way toggle (original inside case)
Upgraded stop tail to Schaller Fine Tune (original inside case)
New pickguard & Bracket (AllParts).

Comes with SKB hardshell case.  All latches/hinges work.  No odors. 

Has minor play wear, and the binding has extensive cracks / signs of aging through out the body.
No breaks or structural repairs. 
 

My 2c - if you are curious about how it sounds or plays there are many videos and pictures online describing this model.  I think it's absolutely magical to play. 
 
This particular one can still be seen in the Electra pages index, via River City Amps. 

It's got some play wear - a dinger on the headstock, and one on the front bass side of the body (see pics).  I replaced the original three way toggle, as it wasn't staying put when selecting the bridge pup.  Speaking of - The original pups are just amazing.  I understand some people love to chase tone, and will spend bookuu bux to upgrade pups, but these Maxon made pickups are the Shizznit.   Very clear highs, warm mid tones, chimey - can be played aggressively with distortion, or sing like single coils on the cleans. 
ps - in case anyone notices - I have polished the frets since taking the pictures and stringing it back up.  ;) 

Feel free to ask for more info or detailed pictures. 
Thanks for looking.
