Relax , I am not trying to upset anyone. I was just hoping that someone from PRS would answer the question. The debate on neck joints could go on forever , even luthiers don't agree. I have been building/repairing guitars for nearly twenty years and have done numerous neck resets. If a customer saw what was involved in steaming out a neck joint , it would scare them. I still believe that PRS makes the best electric guitars available today.
