    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?
