Switch guitars

Anybody play a Switch guitar? I saw one in a mag, and the paintjob was like 3 different colors horizontaly. They look pretty cool though. I'm just kinda looking into them right now.

they're supposed to be mid to high end instruments, but the way they look is not... trustworthy I'd say.

...all I found yet is, that Switch first appeared on NAMM 2004 with some plastic guitars made following a Vibracell patent they hold.
Recently found one on *bay, still waiting for it .....

Edit:
now I got one, a Wild One, the minimalistic one pickup variation.
After adjusting trussrod, string heights and intonation it seems to be a very comfortable fellow. No problems with flat strings.
The pickup can be splitted via miniswitch, lots of varieties of tone are available using volume and tone controlls, which really do their job.
