No, it will not warp. Too much tension is a problem, no tension isn't really a problem. The truss rod gives support to the neck. It does not act like a counterbalance.

- Martin D-16RGT w/ LR Baggs M1 Active Soundhole Pickup
- Seagull 25th Anniversary Flame Maple w/ LR Baggs Micro EQ

The neck may go into a near straight line if there isn't enough tension on it from steel strings to give it the proper amount of relief. Easy fix by loosening the truss rod about 1/4 turn. However, I don't think the Fishman will work with nylons. That type of pickup needs to have metal strings in order to work with the magnetic field of the pickup. If you had an under saddle transducer or a mic then I'd say no problem. Things being as they are, I'd stick with steel strings if I were you.
