    To me it looks like the the shadow and the angle casts the illusion of the knobs and jack being closer to the edge of the body. Difficult to tell from those photos.

    I also can't see the serial number on the photo with the back of the headstock. A 1994 serial number is an eight digit one, but starts with 94. It was "centennial" thing for that year so they say.

    Here's a photo of the body of my '94.

    Yeah, I think I get it now. It's the shadow from the case. Okay, case solved *pun intended. Ya just never know here as there are so many shysters selling bogus stuff.

    I actually rarely see bogus Gibson’s and Fenders on Reverb.com. Where are you guys actually seeing all these fakes?
