That should have been self evident, it has a 3 position selector , the owner did not want a strat style selector put in, the middle pickup was originally wired directly to its own pot. besides The middle pickup was an old mini humbucker that sounded empty
i was told it sold for 2000, the thing was that it being made out of all maple like that it was a very bright sounding and the owner did not like that. the wood was too thick, it should have had a thinner front and back like a 335 so it could vibrate more . moreover the thing was built like a big violin with back and front caps ? overall it was beautiful and a one of a kind, just visually stunning piece and it held up under close inspection. the owner style of playing (finger picking) is just genius too, the guy could bring out the best in any instrument.
