Is this a problem?

Just saw a 1987 RG550 on ****: http://cgi.****.com.au/1987-Ibanez-R...sid=p1638.m122

I noticed that the high e string is too close to the edge of the fingerboard, much closer when compared to my RG1570. Is the high e string gonna slip off the fingerboard when you're vibrating it or something? I played a few guitar that have the problem like this. Really annoying.
NOTE: ****=e-bay

Probably not a big deal. I had that happen on my RG-520 just loosen the neck bolts a little and push the neck laterally and re-tighten.

Not a problem, you can adjust it. But I would be concerned about those stars on the pickguard

Me either. If I got it I'm gonna replace the pickguard.

Re: Is this a problem?

Is this neck pocket a bit angled, like on the js, or it's only the pic? It's kind weird to me to see this...

Re: Is this a problem?

One thing pretty consistent with evilbay is the dopes who list their guitars as "mint" when they are hardly that. It's got a pretty nasty fretboard ding which I'm not sure even how you get one unless you are a drunken doofus. The *I'm a dorkwad fanboy teen* stickers superfrigging-glued on certainly stop it from being mint. Not to mention the corroded neck plate.

The high E string thing looks like just a picture angle thing to me.
