should I worry?

guys, should I worry about this? or this is common?
the neck alignment on the bass side n the edge of the neck is higher than on the neck join.

the neck alignment on the treble side : on the edge and neck join are even.


is this common ? or something wrong with my neck?

I am not sure if that is common or not, but I do know that my tech always sets my bass side higher then the treble side, so maybe its compensated.

Re: should I worry?

Thanks Guys,
Almost all my bolt-on guitars have similar issue.
Only 2 or3 that have perfect neck alignment on the bass side.
So I shouldn't worry about it, rite?

That misalignment is compensated by bridge adjustment which is probably a little higher on the bass side in relation to the body.

It wouldn't effect playability. Maybe someone that obsesses with the way it looks would screw around with shimming it, but I wouldn't.

Re: should I worry?

yeah, all this time I never put any attention on this.

you are right moonlight, I became a little obsessed with the way it looks since I compare it with a neckthru.

I guess I'm gonna leave it alone.

Re: should I worry?

I know how it is, I have my battles with perfectionism too. I was looking a few of my RGs and I think when you look at a neck that is shimmed (as I think AlaskaBat was referring to,or maybe he just sneezed) the bass side appears to be more uneven than the treble side because there is a longer part of the body to compare it to.
