My guitar is currently unstrung since I'm in the middle of installing new pickups, but a little bump in the road makes is so I won't be able to finish the job until tomorrow. So right now, it's sitting, completely gutted and stringless, on my workbench. Should I be worried that the neck might warp or do something funny overnight?

nha. but it's gonna be a little off when you restring. it's gonna go out of tune and you're gonna get buzz and whatnot for a little while and then the neck will go back to normal.

i dont leave my guitar unstrung for a week. maximum would be two days. you need a proper set-up if you would leave it unstrung for a long time.

my brother left his unstrung for like 3 months and when he finally restrung it played fine, a little buz but he fixed it by just raising the action.

It wont hurt it, remember, the guitar wasn't built with strings already on it.


If you are at all worried then loosen the truss rod a little and tighten it back up once you have re-strung...

true, but it also didn't have a tight truss rod at that point either.
