is that the neck can easily be replaced. Unlike the more expensive neck-thru basses, if your neck is indeed warped you just unbolt it and get a new one! Far less expensive than getting the neck reworked. And if originality is an issue for future resale, you can just store the old neck somewhere and reinstall it when it's time to sell. PEACE
: If you don't want to change your axe, though, take it to a qualified technician and ask him/her to straighten the neck AND install some kind of reinforcement. I've heard graphite bars accomplish this task pretty nice.
: Yes, I know both solutions are expensive and painful, but bear this in mind: if your neck has warped, you have SERIOUS problems, and it requires either major neck surgery or a change of instrument.
: Hope this helped. Buena suerte and keep your bass up front in the mix,
