WHAT IN THE [email protected]@ JS2000 neck on JS1000???

This afternoon when i took my js1000's neck apart to adjust the neck shim, i saw a model number "js2000-01" right on the neck joint, and on the body the model number is "js1000-01"... is this normal??? have a js2000 neck on a js1000.. I know they are both the same neck but... weird.. and also, I bought this guitar just a month ago at my local guitar shop, but this is obviously a 2001 model.. is this normal too??? the guy in the shop told me that it was probably the only one in vancouver area..so i bought it.
oh~ and the reason why i wanna adjust the neck shim is because my guitar just keep buzzing somehow at the lower E and A even though it has been adjusted by a guitar tech, and he told me that my guitar actually has 2 serial numbers, the one for the neck and the one for the body are different I NEED ADVISE!!! hELp PleAsE..

JS1000 spec neck, normal prcedure there to mark the neck spec on the neck, body spec on the body, even though on some models they're not the same. They made a run in 01', you would probably has the new bowtie serial sticker with first 2 #'s 01. Neck plate is just a consecutive # found on all Jpn. JS models. somewhere around 9000 - 9500?

If you're buzzing it's because your action is set too low for your picking style, or, there isn't enough neck bow. If you have enough neck bow raise the action till it goes away. Some buzz is tollerable, it's whatever is tollerable to you [barring any fretwork problems]

Thanks for replying Rich^^, yes it has the new bowtie serial sticker but its first 2 digit is 02.. .. so, everything is normal then... is it?

I think my picking style is quite gentle, just for checking the buzzing though and my neck bow is ok too i guess b'coz my guitar tach adjusted it. well, after messing around with the neck shim, i decided to take out the original shim(I added paper shim before but more buzz), after that, the buzzing has gone but the string heigh at my 12th is about 2/32 can't lower it no more or buzz .. should i put the shim back and probably put a shim under the locking nut too???

1.2mm buzzless... hmm... just a little bit, does this mean low action already?? and yes i played around with the bridge a bit too, its quite low i guess, much lower than the factory setting at the treble E side its about 2/32 and bass E is about 3/32.. is this good??

dude generally factory spec is around 2mm, of course its low, and of course its buzzing. lol. I simply cannot play with action that low, I pick too hard.

damn it, then i am having sex 4 hours a day everyday, having sex between classes..and after lunch and dinner

anyways, I just readjusted the truss rod, so the neck is having really little relief, alomst no bow, and put the neck shim back, rise the trem a little bit just above 2/32 at 12th. Now there's almost no buzz at all and it plays GEART!! Huuuu~~ finally!! btw, new strings make differences too
