: I have a low line Paltino Upright that has a slight bow up in the last 4-5 inches of the neck. My D string has a buzz in spots and a thud in spots.Is there anything I can do to repair it at a low cost?
Depending on the type of bow, it may be possible to remove the fingerboard, apply heat and moisture to the neck along with a metal straightedge clamped to it, and reinstall the fingerboard. A cheaper method, provided the fingerboard has enough meat on it, would be to plane the fingerboard to compensate for the curve.
