Hey Brett,

 

I have a couple '89s, and yes, that is perfectly normal.  It has an angled neck pocket to accommodate the stud-style bridge.

Hi Folks,

 

Just taken possession of my new JTV89 Variax (Black) and giving it the once over the neck profile looks a bit lopsided where it joins the body!

I'm not sure if this is due to the raised left sided body shape. I've attached a couple of pics to show what I mean. There doesn't appear to be any fret buzz and the neck doesn't look bent when I look down it - but I'm never very confident in my ability to see much when I do this :)

 

Any of you guys got a similar neck profile and can put my mind at ease!

 

Many thanks,

 

Brett

Cheers for this - that's put my mind at rest. Early impressions are that this is a lot of fun - I especially like the tuning capabilities. Allows me to practise alt tunings into the night without my Taylor acoustic and the accompanying annoyance that brings to my neighbours... :)
