    I am thinking about building a parts bass. I have been looking at a particular neck, but haven't found the body I want. What is the recommended procedure for storing a bass neck off of the body? How do I adjust the truss rod prior to storage? Am hoping to find a body in the near future, but that remains to be seen.

    Just loosen the truss rod to prevent warping and it can sit wherever.
