I just bought this off ebay, can anyone help me identify it? I've looked all over and can't pinpoint it.
Thanks, Doug

I'd say it's the x930...

the "charcoal gray" sometimes has different looks to it. does any part of it look like it's been refinished?

No, The finish looks original. What's a little odd though is:
Dot inlays instead of block inlays
3 way toggle switch instead of 5 way rotary switch
Bone nut, and blank truss rod cover.

Also, it's hard to tell if it's really a neck thru design
there is a discernable seam at the point where the neck meets contoured heel, maybe just a paint line, I can't tell. also the woodgrain visible on the back of the neck doesn't match the visible grain on the back of the body, although maybe it's not only 3 pcs wide but 2 pcs thick as well.

Anyway, it feels and plays great, and that's all that really matters.

Later on I gather some were made with 3-way switches because people were confused by the 5-way.
