Good thought, but I bought the neck on Ebay with no body.

That sounds like a good idea, I'll give that a shot tonight. It's got a slight bow overall, the way I normally like it, but there's just enough of a high spot to choke off the A and D on the 3rd fret a little. Should I let it sit overnight tuned to pitch with the truss rod still loose or should I bring the neck back to almost-straight?
