Jtv89 - Normal Neck Joint?jtv neck

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!

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

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...
