RGD and neck joint issue?

Hey everyone!

I was playing my RGD 2120Z today and noticed that the neck joint didn't seem flush with the body?

Re: RGD and neck joint issue?

you can see its sort of tilted towards the headstock. Is this normal?

Neck to body angle is normal. It is used to correct string action. Neck doesn't need to be perfectly parallel with guitar body.

If it were flat the trem would sit to low to have usable range.

Whew thanks guys! I was getting worried! I bumped the headstock on the wall like a moron and thought I might have damaged it.
