My question is was there different widths on the neck in different years? Mine is 1987 so could it be the earlier necks were narrower in that spot? The shape is ever so slightly off but that part would be ok I just want it to fit (I got a 2 humbucker only version since to me the middle pickup is useless and in the way)
Yes, in 2005 Ibanez switched from a 56mm pocket to 58mm. If you bought it from Nate (PCguitars, I think) just send him an email.... he'll get you sorted out. He's also a member here.
