When I bought the guitar, the previous owner swapted the position of the tone-toggle switch and the pickup selector switch.
I replaced the cheap Japanese Tune-O-Matic bridge with a vintage and correct bar-bridge. Now the guitar is fully back to its original specs.
It had a neckreset (april 2012) done by Luthier Roman Zajíček, one of the best Luthiers in Europe and now it plays like a breeze.
- Unusual factory features
There are no string mufflers.
Under the backpad there is no acces hole.
