The second prototype sported the same pup-config (H-H-S) but a toggle switch and no blade. This was the Warmoth neck/body-combo that BB fitted to Vivian´s specs before Kramer produced it - sans the diagonal dotting:

The blade-switch-angle in that eBay-auction looks totally off. If it is a Swan 2 it might be a one-off OR somebody routed the blade-switch from the toggler´s hole OR it is a refin OR something totally different shrug .

Kind of reminds me of a Swan that I owned for a day before flipping. Why do people do such stupid things to their guitars instead of just buying one that already has the setup that they want. :bang :chainsaw

Well, it's already "ruined", and I never want to see them :chainsaw

But to me the guitar is more versatile with the HHS configuration.

not a swan for the western market. looks like a japan market swan. swan 2 has two singles and one hum. gotoh floyd came standard on japan models.
