    No trussrod problem. Its just the old neck was to unstable, even with the weather of my city being the same during all year. And I didnt like the neck shape too much, and the curvy radius.

    So i found this super cool luthier from the state of São Paulo that will build a new neck. Oh, btw, Im glad my bass is bolt-on.

    Here are the specs:

    3 piece neck - quarter-sawn maple with a center stripe of pau ferro.

    Pau Ferro fingerboard.

    Flat radius with zero fret.

    Neck profile: We will try a mix of asymmetrical Stevey Ray with a D shape. So it will be like an slightly asymmetrical D shape. I think that this will hold my thumb on the back of the neck much better than the Fender C shape.

    Any opinions, advices? They are very welcome.

    Oh, the headstock will be MM style, the turnes on a 3x1 arrangement. I've always wanted that.
