This is a carryover from another thread I was not able to post in, but regarding the high and low strings not being equally spaced from the edge of the fretboard, this is a GOOD thing. I am a 20 year guitar player and I find that on Ibanez guitars, there seems to be a tendency, not unlike the fender bass, for strings to be closer on the treble side. I just checked four Ibanez Sabres, and 3 of 4 of them have an _identical_ tendency towards the treble size. It has to be by design. A player NEVER bends up on the high E string and I find that there is more vertical "slop" from technique on the lower string. When a finger lands on the string, there is more a tendency to push it up -- there is ZERO possibilty of pushing it down accidentally. The low E string benefits from having more fret. You absoltely do not want the low E getting puhsed off the board because it is too close to the edge. I think instead of being anally retentive and trying to satisfy what we perceive to be visually correct, what is more playable is important here.
