Checking Neck Condition

Recommended Posts

Eyeball it. Gotta straight edge of any kind? If you put a straight edge on it and it's got relief or backbow in it, see if you can straighten it using the trussrod.

OK, the problem was the truss rod was too tight and was causing the back bow. With the rod fully loosened, the neck is almost flat. I'm going to put it back on the body, string it up and see if I can get a little relief in it. If I can, I'll be OK. If not, I'll need to sand the middle of the fret board to remove the little hump.
