js100 headstock

just curious, i just got a 2nd hand js100. its ok, but the headstock is parallel with the fingerboard, or it looks like it leans alittle bit forward. i have 2 other ibanez and neither look like this, is this just how they make the newer ibanezs??? or is my new axe boned?

Re: js100 headstock

If you mean to say that the JS100's headstock isn't tilted like on an RG or Jem, that is correct.

Re: js100 headstock

my js100 and js1000 shapewise look identical. both have don't have a tilted headstock. finish is a different story though.

Re: js100 headstock

I think all JS's have a straight, Fender-style headstock. I read somewhere that Satch preferred this for the sake of sustain.
