another sfg question

First I thought it was shimmed the wrong way or so but it wasn't shim at all.
Over the entire length of the neck the bass side of the rosewood is 1mm thinner than the high e side. it doesn't have alot effect on playability but come on, this is not good or does it?
Does your sfg have the same issue?

I'm not a specialist, but this neck looks seriously bad.

Indo Quality at it's best!

I have a SFG too; it would be my first JEM to go if I had to sell one.

I'm with Rachmaninoff on this one. That looks REALLY bad. I'd say if you can get your money back, do it.

Well then I don't know what to do. Maybe Rich can give you some advice?

Re: another sfg question

:O

That's ridiculous

How did ANY quality control not catch that. That means quality control = only if it's broken
