Gibson Les Paul Case

Hello everybody!
I have a doubt with the case. Is it normal the space between the neck and the middle up the body? The case have a space from the floor to the body. Does this space force the neck?

Thanks

My LP case has a little piece of foam in this area under the heel of the guitar as unlike a Fender "bolt on" neck which runs parallel to the body, the LP neck is raked back at a slight angle. There is still some gap there. The main thing that you want to see when you put the guitar in its case is that the neck runs parallel with the edge of the open case. You don't want the headstock sitting way up above the open case where the lid would push down on it when closed.

Man, thanks again for the response!!!
So is there a little space in back of body because of the neck's angle? I've never saw this. The Gibson constructions are very complex.

Like I said the neck should sit flat or level when the guitar is in the case. If the neck isn't level and the headstock sits up in the air, it will definitely get stressed when you close the case. If the case is made for an LP, it should be fine.
