Started life as a S-S-S anniversary model. Now has H-H pickups but still has slider control.

Oh, this is INTERESTING.

It's a bare wood body like an X130N. For a moment I thought someone had combined two guitars.

But the trem bridge and the presence of the slider make me think that it went something like this:

* disassemble X145 Anniversary
* strip body
* put on new single-ply PG for the humbuckers
* reassemble

Huh. If I had infinite resources I'd buy it, have Pickguardian make a three-ply PG, fill it with the proper single-coils, and candy-apple spray the body.

At which point it would be worth $350 instead of $250!
