There is a Musicman Sterling bass at my local Guitar Center. I know that it's been there for a while now (probably years at this point). I've also tried it out a handful of times over that time. The action was a mile high and it had a severe amount of relief. It was completely unplayable. The last time I was in there they had it marked down so I tried it again. It was the same as before and I mentioned this to the salesman. Fast forward to this week. I go in there just to browse around and the bass is now perfectly setup. It plays and sounds pretty good and I'm thinking about buying it. Anyways, my question is this. After sitting around for years with such a bad setup can the neck have become twisted or warped? If so, is there a way I can tell just by looking at it? I held strings down at the first and last fret to make a rudimentary straight edge and it looks good. I just want to make sure though before spending my hard earned dough.
