screwdelulu Posted December 19, 2005 Report Share Posted December 19, 2005 (edited) I am building a fretless neckthrough bass. After I had glued the fingerboard onto the neck, I realized that while about 2/3 of the neck is perfectly straight, the last 1/3 towards the headstock is cambered (convex bow). Consequently, the lowest point of the FB is 1+ mm under the ideal straight line. The illustration is exaggerated for clarity purpose. Should I sand the FB until it is straight? I am afraid the truss rod will not do the job in this case. (my design is angled headstock). What is the best solution for this problem? Does it make sense Clamping (and probably heating or steaming) the neck to straight piece of wood?
