Today I saw a classical in decent condition for only 50$ in the local pawn shop. The problem is it has a slight neck bow, the action is great by the nut but towards the middle of the neck it's at least 1.5 cm's off of the board. Any way to fix this? I don't want to miss a deal like that.

I think the thing might not actually have a neck bow, but be suffering from pot belly (is that what it's called?)

Heh. Just a 'belly', really. A certain amout is normal, and as long as it's not dipping in front of the bridge it should be fine. If it is, I wouldn't bother with it unless it's a really really nice instrument to begin with.
