    How much neck gap is normal for a Music Man?

    I have recently bought a MM Cutlass, I am quite happy with it, but I think the neck gap is a little big? I never pay attention to these things, but I had a Suhr and remember a smaller gap, is this normal for MM or should I worry about it? Anyone here with a cutlass or similar model that can check it out?

    Thanks.

    I've never had a Cutlass but the gap between the neck and the body doesn't seem normal...

    Ok, I took the neck out and placed it again, I think it looks pretty good now.

    Probably some mistake with the assembly, looks about right on the second picture though. I'll probably order myself one soon since I have a lot of free time before my college starts (don't need to write an essay since I ordered one from pro-essay-writer.com/blog/apa-style-format.
