Hey I broke a b string earlier this morning and i was just wondering if i left it out for a maximum of 3 days with a missing string would the neck warp? i might not be able to pick up a pack today and i don't want my trusty fender to screw itself over

Thanks

dont think one missing string would cause neck warp

No it will be fine. Might have to let it sit a few minutes once you replace the string for the neck to level out again but no big deal.

Hell, my old First Act... I left it with no strings for a while and forgot to loosen the truss rod. Then i loosen it and I think I broke it... Anyways, it has strings now and the neck is still straight, so you should be fine

Alright cool thanks everyone
heard somewhere that missing strings/less tension could cause neck warp D=

it does, but after longer periods of time than 3 days, I'd say like 2 weeks without tension on the neck will warp it pretty bad.
