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 am fairly new to electric bass, and am wondering: how does one check a bass for a warped neck? I am familiar with the concept of relief, but i don't know what is meant by a warp. Is it a twist? Also, how can it be repaired?

    I believe "warp" generally means either twist, or irregular relief not caused by the truss rod or string tension.
