    I'm just curious if damage can be caused to a neck or fretboard if all four strings are left slack for several days and the truss rod (or rods) are not loosened.
    Could this cause warping, humps or raised frets?

    Not in a few days, maybe never.

    Well, I agree with SissyKathy on both points; very succinct. just keep it in the house away from where it might become drenched in water.
