Broken Neck?

Recommended Posts

I tried stringing up my fixer guitar even though the pickups aren't setup yet, just to see how the neck plays. I noticed a lot of dead notes and high action. Problem is though, the action is higher closer to the nut, then down towards the pickups. What's going on? I had the neck professionally repaired for several splits, by a very talented and well known tech so I don't think he screwed it up?

Is it a truss rod thing?

Is the action continually lowering as it goes from nut to bridge? If so, I'd try raising the string height at the bridge. If the action is uncomfortably high at the nut, then perhaps the nut needs to be re-cut.
