Had a little fettle with my HW1 and reversed the switch plate and swapped the pots and switch around.

An easy swap which only required swapping in one longer wire for the switch.

I can now do volume swells in the same way I do on my Strats, so a very useful mod in my case.

While I appreciate not historically correct it seems such a convenient and obvious set up I am to some extent surprised it hasn't become the default. No doubt such might be considered sacrilege by the purist though.

It does take a bit of getting used to as I spent the first half hour trying to change the volume with the tone knob. :-)

I've seen pics of Teles configured that way but I have never played one.

Just think of how awesome a guitar player you could have been by now if you had only spent the last 10 years practicing instead of obsessing over pickups and roasted maple necks.

Since doing the mod I have become aware of a great many more examples including Custom Shop offerings aa well. I guess I'm in good company.

I recall seeing Jimmy Thackeray with Tab Benoit and Jimmy had his reversed.

Tab had a thinline with a different design.
