djhollowman Posted February 6, 2008 Report Share Posted February 6, 2008 Hello all! Well, I just installed all my frets, checked the level, and it's backbowed! I sanded it perfectly flat before fretting. It has a one-way truss rod, which is already slackened, and would only bend it worse anyway! Please tell me there's a solution to this! Help! Will the string tension pull it level enough??? (Neck is a 3-ply laminate of maple around bubinga, ebony fingerboard, angled headstock, 7 string guitar. Also, no neck angle at body join, recessed tunomatic bridge, if this helps!) Will the extra tension generated by the 7th string help? I like a really flat neck under tension anyway, but I'm worried that I won't be able to level the frets enough to counteract the backbow at present. Had a wee search here for solutions, but didn't find what I'm after. Thanks, DJ Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
