I used to work for a band (guitar/bass tech) and the bassist used Sterlings. A few years ago, when they still had birdseye maple fretboards. The necks ALWAYS needed the truss adjusted, sometimes twice during the course of a whole day. I know venue changes and all that climate stuff, I am no newbie, but still, even when sitting around the space with it on tour breaks, the thing ALWAYS needed tweaking. So much so that the owner insisted that I keep an allen key in my pocket so I can adjust it on the fly at anytime, anywhere. I bought a Sterling last year, brand new custom ordered for me. It doesn't have the birdseye maple fretboard and I hadn't (at the time) heard anything about this problem from anywhere else, so I assumed it was a thing of the past, or limited tothe birdseye somehow. Well, no, my bass does it too, the neck is in a constant state of change... and it never leaves my bedroom!!! Am I alone with this problem? Is there a fix that I may not know about? I need to give it a full fret dress as is (see my comments #3 here: http://www.talkbass.com/forum/showthread.php?t=244261Is ) among other things, so if I'm taking the time to fix all it's problems, why not that too?
