Because Photobucket has chosen to in effect "take down" everyone's photos (unless you pay them), we have extended post edit time in the Luthier's Corner to UNLIMITED.  If you used photobucket and happen to still have your images of builds, you can go back and fix as many of your posts as far back as you wish.

    I build guitars and sell them. Strings, too
    I have a Tom Anderson jazz neck from 1988 thats been sitting in my basement for 15 years. Back in the day I took it off because I knew it wasn't right. That is, it just felt twisted. There was never any finish on it and I believe it's Ash. Tonight I placed it on a flat surface and made sure the heel was lying flat. When I looked at the treble side of the headstock, and it sat about 1/8 off the table. So, my question is: Is this able to be fixed or should I view this neck as something I can use as a a unique door handle or testbed for everything I want to learn about making necks?
