    I can't say 100% but think it looks fine in those pics. Does it feel off? I've had a neck shift in the pocket before and couldn't really see it but pulled the string off the fretboard really easily. As long as it plays fine, it is fine.

    When adjusting a bolt on neck, the most important thing is always to have proper string alignment. It's pretty much impossible to make a bolt on neck pocket that will fit perfectly all the time, due to how wood expands and contracts with temperature, moisture, etc. There's also slight variation when paint is applied, etc.

    As long as the strings are aligned, which it looks like they are, it's all good. Usually I put some tension on the strings before making the final tightening of a bolt on joint, to pull the neck into the body as much as possible.
