My friend loant me His bass, but when I took it out of the case the neck was extremley bowed

He said he left it in the case for like 2 weeks.
so should I just leave it in a "humid" place for a few days?
or **** around with the truss rod?

the bass is like 8 years old and in horrible shape
i'm wondering if it's at all fixable at home

There is no "quick easy fix". Unless you know what you're doing, take it to a good shop, but remember that it may be completely ****ed. Depending on how bad it is, there may be nothing you can do. Might as well give it a shot though.
That said, if no-one cares what happens to bass, take the opportunity to mess around with the truss rod. Better off wrecking something crap than something good.

Very true, I guess i'll just kinda let it sit in my room for a week or something than give it back It may have been the humidity , because it was kept in a closed dry environment for a few weeks
so apparentally leaving it in a fairly humid climate for a while may fix it a bit but other than that I don't think i'll touch it

if your gonna do something like that also try tightening the truss rod and really really loosening up the strings

NO it won't, it needs straightening by adjusting the truss rod, take it to someone who knows whats he's doing and watch him.

John Swift is absolutely correct.

first off, a bass neck should have a slight bow. second- two weeks in a case will not cause any harm to the bass, or the neck. that neck had the same amount of bow, when it was put in the case, two weeks earlier. third- every bass should be set-up by a pro at least once. if you buy a new set of strings, most shops will install them and give the bass a "once over" for a small set-up fee. my shop charged me $25 to install the strings, and do a set-up. the set-up also included adjustments to the truss rod, bridge and p-ups, plus they set the intonation. well worth the time and money.
if you don't have the money. google set-up, bass guitar. and learn about the process before you try to do it yourself. good luck
