Question Ibanez Xiphos Problem

Hi, I recently bought an Ibanez Xiphos XPT700 in white and it seems as if the high E string is much too close to the edge of the neck... The locking nut and bridge don't seem to be centered with the neck.

I'm wondering if this is normal, or if I should send it back and get a new one? I can't really change the position of the neck, either... since it has neck-thru construction...

Re: Ibanez Xiphos Problem

I just went to guitarcenter and demanded a new one. Thanks though! I'll let you know how that one is. I really hope it's setup well, because I don't want to have to pay 50 bucks to set it up... Man I can't wait until I get that OFR in it, haha. Should I change the pickups, too?
