Today, Lawman Guitars is Presenting..

A really cool all original 1976 Electra Lawsuit Marauder guitar. These guitars were way ahead of their time and of course directed their sales efforts to  Gibson Players that couldn’t afford a Gibson Marauder as their market. They did too good a job, thus the Lawsuits from Gibson…

This all original Electra plays as good as it looks. Very little player wear on this one. We had it Professionally setup with new 10’s and it has great awesome low playing action that very easy on the fingers. All pickups, knobs, pickguard, et all, are original. This is a really cool guitar. Gibson didn't make many Marauders and Electra made even fewer. The only one I could find like this one was sold over 2 years ago. Very RARE Electra here!

The Pickups are very different from each other. A very unique sound. Not like a Les Paul at all…I really like how they copied the Gibson Marauder look even to the knobs and the Harmonica Bridge…

Heres some info I found from the new Electra Company regarding these cool guitars…

Looking back at the original Electra Guitars, over four decades ago, a group of creative entrepreneurs wanted to make state of the art, affordable guitars available to musicians. They decided to pool their talents to create a new line of guitars. The challenge was to design, build and market instruments that were well-built and innovative while still being a great value.

The MPCs were manufactured in the same factory, side by side, at the same time as the Ibanez Les Pauls and were not only High Quality Copies as described but, most would say, they were actually better than the original mid to late 70’s Gibson Les Pauls they were copying. What this means is that as the factory was manufacturing the Ibanez run, a portion was pulled aside and outfitted as Electra MPC’s and sold as such.

As fate would have it the founding fathers of Electra Guitars would build guitars with innovations far ahead of their time. New switching concepts for pickups, onboard effects and aesthetic upgrades to classic designs, would become the cornerstone of Electra Guitars’ popularity.

In 1975, Tom Presley was hired as Electra Guitars product manager. His vision included guitars with innovative switching combinations of pickups and onboard guitar effects. John Karpowitz was hired to make Tom’s vision a reality.

This cool guitar even has a really nice SKB Hardshell Case. Its in as nice of shape as the guitar. Even with the Band Stencil, it looks really cool...The key for this case is in the accessory box…A great home for your cool Made in Japan Marauder….

Sold as-is no returns as its vintage and used, however, I have been hand picking my customers guitars for over 17 years now and they have all loved the instruments I found for them. This cool guitar will not be an exception.

Thanks for checking out our cool guitars.
