I say…..

Pretty much one of the most adaptable guitars I’ve seen.

3 miniswitches are 3 way giving up/middle/down = single coil/off/humbucker.  The one lonely switch is a 2 way when it’s flipped back, it puts the Bridge pickup on “Full” in Humbucker mode…..

3 Humbuckers – yep the one in the middle is a “stacked” singlecoil sized Humbucker.

Beautiful neck, some very slight fretwear on the frets – but not worth recrowning yet.

A few pick-scrapes on the treble side of the guitar – but that comes with the territory…..

Otherwise in very good condition.
