It's a VM7
Is that normal? Thank you!

I never noticed it before but my vm7 has almost the same thing. Mine sticks out all the way around but bulges a bit on the left side like yours. It appears your is better aligned on the right side with a slightly more pronounced bulge on the left side. But very similar none the less. I have had mine for a few years and have had no problems out of it yet.

That's great! I thought it's just my vader's problem.

I have a very slight lip on my V6 as well. Never bothered me, as the neck is a little slimmer than the headpiece.

It's not ideal, but it's been posted a couple of times over the years.

From this exact angle, it's likely the most pronounced, right? It's not that the whole neck is asymmetrical, it's just that at the very end of the neck, someone either got a little aggressive with the sanding and rounded over that one side of the curved cut a little too much, or perhaps there was a tiny flaw in the wood itself that needed a bit more sanding. It's end grain, and sanding that can cause splintering, so it's possible they had to smooth some of that away.
