Spike1956 Posted July 31, 2006 Report Share Posted July 31, 2006 Hi All, Starting my first guitar and its a Strat. Using GuitarFrenzy.com along with Melvyn book and others to build this. I bought a maple neck blank (not curly) from Stewmack. It was flat and square so I laid out the shape with a template from guitarbuildingtemplate.com and routed out for the truss rod (stewmac double acting). Then bandsawed to shape to within an 1/8" or so and used a robosand to bring to final dimensions. Everything worked great except there is now a bow in the neck. The bow is an upbow I think, with the fret board side up it sags in the middle about .090 . Should I try and plane the neck flat or use the truss rod to bring it back? Any ideas please. Thanks Spike Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
