my new rg570ct had set screws in the studs and i screwed up and striped them. the studs can move up but not down. and i accidentally brought them up to high. the thicker strings are higher then the thinner strings. and both sides are exceptionally high. usually my guitar is chilling in its hard case. but i am curios i keep it tuned. right now to my eye when holding my guitar up to a light and looking down it the 15 year old fret board is straighter then most new expensive pool table sticks i have looked at. i dont see any sign of warping or twisting. but can this cause damage to the neck? and will it? i am ordering new studs from rich at ibanez rules. but i am curious will this damage the neck probably soon? how long is to long set up like this? its been over a month at least.

It should not cause any problems. You could always unscrew the studs all the way and remove the locking(internal) screw(grab the bottom with vice-grips and turn them out the bottom). Then you could adjust the studs for proper height and have decent action while you wait for the new studs.
