    I have seen it up once before and the previous seller described it as a Calibas, someone from Switzerland I believe, which it most definitely is not. It might have been a custom order, but equally someone may have bought a 5-string GA24 back into JD and had him add the presence control in what was originally the hole for the jack and relocate the jack socket to the lower bout. The old rotary position selector could also have been replaced with the touch pad at the same time. Looks nice though. It is missing the truss rod cover and looks like the strap button has been relocated from the side position to the tailpeice and the old hole filled. The description is not entirely accurate though - it does not have the "scalloped forearm chamfer" seen on the Calibas model, nor does it have "SN 2000 pick-ups in black urethane resin encapsulations". They may be replacement (SN 2000) P/U's, introduced a couple of years back, but I doubt it. They are definitely not in resin encapsulation (read black plastic), but are the age correct wooden covers. Caveat emptor I suppose.
