Waiting for the hirez pics. Not sure what the deal is with the electronics though...

Sure does look to be an extra knob there where you'd expect the Q switch.

I agree, there's something curious about the electronics. The seller added this, "the 2 quick tone change switches were disconnected by the factory as per the original owners request". And from the original text, "the electronics are custom straight from the factory with volume, high, low, and pan controls as well as two quick tone change switches". Note that the build sheet does not say anything about the electronics being custom. Here's a close up of the pic in the listing; two of the knobs don't look stock.
Given that two of the knobs are not original and that the two quick change switches don't work, I'm guessing the electronics have been compromised.

I got the picture from the seller. It looks like the original filter and Q switch were replaced with an Alembic bass / treble circuit. The two quick change switches were disconnnected, and the Q switch was replaced with one of the tone knobs. If you're a fan of the Alembic bass / treble tone system, then you're all set! If you prefer the filter / Q system, the it may be a bit of work to undo (and parts to purchase), but not too bad.

Thanks for the update. Not as bad as it could have been.
