      Lovely.

      Was that a design change in the headstock between those two numbers?

      No idea – there is a ½” difference in width, and I have no idea why – the nut width is the same.  175 (no cutaway) is a Swan spec’d guitar, so maybe its something he wanted? Its kinda odd, having the traditional diamond markers – maybe its more like a dread headstock?  174 has the ebony headstock, which feels more like a standard F cutaway detail.  Maybe I’ll have to see if the shop has any other info on differences with these –

      I wonder if they were standardizing headstock templates then?

      175 is the maple one, right?

      They’re both maple!

      these aren’t the ones you saw at the warehouse – neither have a pickup, so they stay at home –
