Christ on a bike - that's an Electra X195.. with non OEM wang bar and knobs, but what's he thinking; £500?! And in an acoustic guitar h/c.... wot a nob!

That said, I have one of these and they makes noises you cannot get from anything else... ask Thorn; he's got the upmarket version, the Thunder III mark III!!

Interesting PUP arrangement; sort of Leo meets Les in the middle.
5 position switch, yes?
Love the blue burst finish.

Nope; a 3 way with 3 pull pots for coil tap, middle on and phase reverse. It does a remarkable strat quack and has some sounds all of it's own! I love mine and I'd love to find a TIII, mk3 just to A/B compare them!!

Hmm, interesting. In that case I wonder why they bothered to use a knife switch rather than standard toggle?
5 positions would be really funky! (And hellishly confusing What a Face )

Yeah, true; I dunno - maybe they thought they'd take on the Fender crowd head on!! You don't need a 5 way, as the middle pot switches the pick up on. and the front pot splits the coil, so you can get your combinations that way... too much for a kid like me to do on the fly; I'd just set the thing at the start of a song and leave it there until the song was over!!
