Reported for stupidity.

If you don't know how to adjust the truss rod, take it to a guitar shop and ask someone there for help.

Take it to a professional or a shop to try sort it out before it gets to late and it's knackered for good.

Any need in reporting him? There wasn't really a need to report him for it, he was asking a question that people could help him out on.

I wasn't reporting TS, I was reporting the first replier.

I'm sorry but that really didn't deserve reporting. He just said that if the TS didn't know what he was doing he could make the problem worse. That's exactly what you said in your post only you elaborated a tiny bit more by telling him to take it to a shop, so should I report you too?

TS, if you feel confident making the adjustments yourself, then have a go. If you don't, take it to a guitar shop/professional like was suggested (guess I should report myself too).

Firstly, check that your strings are in a nice curved fashion in relation to the fretboard radius. M ine was messed up once and I thought it was warped. But no, it was just a sh*ttily done setup

If not, a warped neck is pretty much a dead neck. Anything that can be done is a short term solution.

Hell, go for it.

He was rambling and didn't really contribute whatsoever. Last I heard, that's considered spam.

So what's your post then?

TS, delirium made a good point, check string heights and whatnot, also, truss rod adjustments generally forward and backward warping in the neck, not twisting. Unless you have a dual truss rod then, provided I'm getting the right idea from your description, I would definitely take it to a professional (I overlooked this part in my first post, sorry).

Causes of neck warp:-
* A bad truss rod adjustment
* Broken trussrod
* Changing from a heavy gauge to light gauge can affect the neck. (and visa versa)
* Weather conditions - humitity will change the wood and cause it to be more or less prone to warping.
* Poor long term maintenance.

After you try the quick fix of the truss adjustment make sure that you can eliminate these problems and it should extend the life of your neck.

"Useless"?! Seriously. Cmon Dan, they was helping. What's spamful in it?! The fact that he/she warned the threadstarter of making a mistake maybe?

If I was a mod I would have warned JMD for basically reiterating what chickrawker said and then have the tenaticity to report. Good job im not a mod eh?

It isn't necessary, but highly recommended- I put on a light layer of resin spray on my fretboard as to not affect the radius or fretboard surface too much.

May I ask how you've been storing your bass? Has it been near a radiator or other heat source recently?
#17
i have hanging stands in my room. i dont have a radiator or anything like that. its actually quite cold in my basement(my room) and since its still winter it can get pretty cold.

What did you fill the fret holes with? Did you re-radius the neck afterwards?

i filled the holes with wood filler. i have no clue on how to re radius the neck and couldnt find anything on it. when i sanded it i just used a piece of 200 grit and cupped my hand to the radius of the fretboard.

Well, generally, you would buy a radius block from a website such as Stewmac.com

Maybe try taking it to a shop and see what they thing?

Hi, your going to want to google "Truss rod adjustments" or do a search in UG.

Did you really just admit to having multiple accounts?

TS, how is the humidity where you're hanging it? If you move your bass to places with drastic changes in humidity, that could be part of the problem.

I doubt he would have a radius problem. Unless he sanded an incredible amount when defretting there wouldn't be any noticeable "warp". TS, if the neck is warped, it's ruined and if it's humid in your room then it very well could have warped.

my room isnt humid and i only sanded enough off so the woodfiller was smooth with the fretboard
