Bolt neck LP style bass, black finish, gold hardware, open book headstock.

Like the 2261, this bass carries an unusual early style Electra logo not seen on many other models; it is very similar in style to the early Ibanez logo, suggesting it was certainly sourced from Hoshino and probably built by Fujigen.

From the 1972 catalog:

Bolt neck thinline tele style with chestnut finish, pearl white pickguard, neck humbucker & bridge single-coil pickup.

The 'Semi-Acoustic' tag was a marketing name only- the cutouts on any thinline model are hardly enough to give any acoustic resonance (unless you were playing extremely high volume, in which case you might get feedback). The cutouts and f-hole were originally designed by Fender as a way of lightening the body.
