What is this skin with cigar shaped rows of buttons?

This is the preview image of andy84's 4th Avenue Cafe skin:



But the downloaded skin is completely different (see below). What is the skin shown in the preview image above?

Comparing andy84's gallery at DeviantArt with koekoeh's at Customize.org, the two artists seem to be the same even if koekoeh claims they are not:

This is not the first occasion that koekoeh/andy84 has provided a screenshot completely different from the skin: skin ripper at devart

Also I myself have experienced, that skin and screenshot are not the same.

I have the standalone tool wszview.exe. Although the downloaded screenshot looks like the image above, the downloaded skin looks like the image below. That's the reason, why this .wsz-file didn't come into my Winamp.

I myself wish to know: Where is the true Classic Skin, which looks like promised?...

Thank you, Sabine, for keeping the topic going.

Although I have not found the original skin yet, I have found two earlier skins with the same cigar-shaped rows of buttons: Jethro Amp and Kurban. In Kurban, the rows of buttons (and the whole skin) are recolored to brown.



Jethro Amp is definitely a derivative of some earlier skin because its main window is out of style from the rest. So we are looking for a skin which was created earlier than November, 1999. (The latest file in Jethamp.wsz is dated November 1, 1999.)

I have found it. It is bartostereo with its latest component dating back to November 2, 1998.

The original skin had a dark teal font on a light teal background. Koekoeh changed it to yellow on black and he also changed the colors of the spectrum analyzer.
