How to fix this?

My JS1000 got this problem(if it's a problem):
the dot inlays are not exactly right in between the 3rd and 4th strings, they tends to the 3rd string, how to correct this?

And... 4/64" = ? mm

Thanks a lot

Where the dots are is of no matter, it's if the strings are centered or not. Check the distance from the center of the string to the edge of the fretboard at the last fret, adjust the neck if off [although I prefer a visual evenness to both sides even though that means the high e is a hair closer to the edge that way, still plenty room left]

Thanks for the reply.

But I am keen on setup, can you tell me more about how to set this up?

The distance between the high e and the edge of the fretboard is great than the low E, is it related to the the bridge (EDGE PRO) postion?

Loosen the neck bolts 1/4 turn, **** the neck around until the string alignment is right, tighten the neck bolts, recheck it didn't move.

Rich, the situation is exactly what it is like in the photo, is that acceptable?

I can't see how perfect it is from that picture, and you're the only one it has to be acceptible to.

I see what he's talking about... it's possible the dots aren't perfectly centered on the fretboard... plus each string is a different size so that could give the illusion of the dots being off.

FIrst off the guitar in that picture does not have an edge pro. Second your neck is out of line if you can tell you need to line the neck up properly not the bridge if that is your guitar. youll have to loosen the neck bolts a very little and move the neck till the dots are even if it matter to you. Personally it shouldnt be too much of a hassle
