Last night I had a new to me 1996 CE24 (trans purple...but looks more maroon) delivered. Incredible playing guitar and minty fresh. A very nice compliment to my '91 CU24! Pics to come....tomorrow or Sunday when I change the the strings and do a little cleaning. Anyways, I am a bit surprised by a few things. First, what is a CE3? The included hang tag (I received all of the docs) showed CE3 as the model number. Second, in doing some physical comparisons between the CE and my CU I noticed some odd differences. First, the CE body is thicker than my CU. Next, the CE is heavier than the CU (I'll weigh them to verify but it's noticeable). And third and finally, the trem arm on the CE has a different angle the the CU. Anyone have thoughts or info on why these differences exist? Don't get me wrong, I am not complaining. This is just about everything I have wanted in a CE......I'm just curious about the differences I noticed.
