My vote's T1A with a pickup change, I'm no expert though. Priced at £413.70 (ouch) LINK

True (re T1 ref),†but then it's got the 3 micro switches by vol/tone so wasn't sure...† No batt cover on the back though, so†plot thickens...†Razz

Looking at that, I'd say it's a Thunder I (version 2) with different pickups & two added toggle switches. The absence of a battery compartment seems to rule out it ever being a I-A (I'd be surprised if it's really active, unless they've managed to shoe-horn the batteries into the control compartment) & the extra two switches definitely don't seem to be original Westone.

It's quite nice (& I could find a home for the case Wink), but nowhere near £400-nice...

I've seen batteries jammed into many modern guitars with much less space in the cavity, but I have no idea where they would have shoved the circuit board. Could be attached to the inside of the cover plate with sticky tape I suppose, but my guess is that toggles are split coil / phase reversal / kill switch (the large handled one).
