ibreakemineedtobuildem Posted January 13, 2005 Report Share Posted January 13, 2005 Here goes, Say I build a perfectly flat neck and perfectly radiused board. Then I level the frets to be flat.So then I put a straight edge on my neck and frets and it is flat. When I string it up,it will slightly upbow from string tension.Am I supposed to counteract that tension with my truss rod to bring it back to flat? Do I leave this? What is a properly built guitar neck supposed to look like strung up? Is a little upbow needed? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
