Another model with built in effects, the Electra MPC Outlaw X-720 allows to choose 2 effects out of 12 modules available (MPC stands for Modular Powered Circuits). With a original and minimal design (I particularly enjoy the 4 knobs in line and the very elegant headstock), it has a neck-through-body, two humbuckers - one zebra in bridge position, one with a chrome cover -, big abalone fretboard inlays and a massive stoptail.
Electra was another of these excellent and creative 70s Japanese guitar brands that emerged from the previous copy era. I guess that the same thing will happen with Chinese guitars in the coming 10 years!
