Funny you should post that Quest, I'd never heard of Quest guitars until today when browsing ebay and found this one

Guy wants way too much for it I think but it looks super cool.

i mean it is pretty ugly. at the very least it's weird looking, but at the same time it looks pretty damn cool.
Are tou sure about the name? I can't seem to find any litterature about a fender swingster...
