A very nice one that I had attempted to purchase. I did receive permission from the owner to use the photos here, but forgot to note his name.

I'm digging this one! Love the volute too.

Not really crazy about the varitone though. I've never found one that made a whole lot of difference to the tone.

I was really miffed that I wasn't able to get this. The guy ended up getting 100 Euros LESS than what I had offered :x ! As for the varitone, the one on my ES-500 is rather subtle but the one on my FS-750 is VERY noticeable and that on my WESTONE varies with the settings on the other switches.
