Advice needed on jem neck joint

Hi all

i have just bought a 2002 jem vsbl

while playing it today i have noticed the neck joint under the allen key bolts
is slightly raised, top side (looking down at the neck while playing)

you can feel when playing chords etc around the 3rd fret

is this normal or is crack developing!!!

i have e-mailed the seller and he advised me the guitar was stored for a while

any help will put my mind to rest

after paying almost £950 for the guitar i'am left a bit disapointed

Re: Advice needed on jem neck joint

pics would be a help a this point.

If it is at the head end of the neck I would say no, it is not normal.

If it is a crack it should be repairable though.

He's saying that on the headstock end of the neck where the locking nut screws go through, on the backside of the neck (opposite the fretboard) there is a raised area.

Re: Advice needed on jem neck joint

You wouldnt think a JEM no less would leave the factory like that, maybe there was a fine edge that didnt get any glue and lifted.

Re: Advice needed on jem neck joint

Might be that the screws need to be adjusted.
