    Is it just me, or does the color of this one seem odd? Not nearly as light in the center as I would expect with a 1998 VSB.

    Yeah, this was posted before. It appears to have a cockeyed tailpiece too.

    I like the shade, reminds me of the Lee Ritenour L5 shade.

    Could you please tell us what the initials CES stand for? I assume the "C" is cutaway?

    Thanks

    Yes it does, but I can't tell how much is the tailpiece and how much is the angled bridge.
    I wonder if the tailpiece can be corrected somewhat by just bending it some. I once had a Wes with the same malady but never tried.
    Concerning the finish, is there reason to question the orginality?

    I think the tailpiece is okay, it was just the angle of the pic which was off by 1 degree. To me it looks okay now.
    And yes, my LeeRitenour has a very similar sunburst, a little lighter maybe, but colors usually are misleading on computer screens. Judging by the color of the PG i believe that some red is missing in the pic.

    The tailpiece does appear to be askew. Masaki-san of Walkin Japan makes a transparent acrylic tapered shim that mounts under the tailpiece bracket to correct the skew.

    The skewed tailpiece does not affect playability but I guess it looks a little odd.

    Not as far as I'm concerned. Gibson was very consistent with their colors, but varied nonetheless. I think that gave each guitar its own personalty
