RG3120 problem..help?

Hallo to all..
I need a helpfull advice for a friend of mine..
He has recently bought RG3120..2000. year of production..
With Lo Pro..!
The problem that he is experiencing with it is a string slippage..
The lowest E string, the thin one, is falling out of the neck very easily..
Problem is more obvious during more intense and more demanding playing..scale runs and stuff like that..
Is this common for this model..(caused, maybe, by the narrowness of the neck?)?
What could be the source of the problem..?
And what woudl be a solution..?
Anyon eexperienced similar problem..?
I appreciate any help..
Thank you..

I'm guessing that you mean that the high E string is slipping off the side of the neck. This problem happens when either the neck or the trem is not alligned properly.

I'd check the alignment of the neck, had that issue with my FP and the neck wasn't aligned properly. I straightened her out and no issue anymore.
