Question for Status owners

    I'm thinking of buying a new Status 6, and while I understand that the neck will have a truss rod, I'm wondering if any owners could let me know if they've ever not been able to adjust their necks to completely flat with fairly high-tension strings. I put together a Moses 6 bass in the past, with a truss rod, and the neck was not rigid enough to accommodate Chromes medium gauge flatwounds without excessive forward bow, even with the truss rod tightened to max, and do not want a repeat mistake... thanks.

    Forward bow?

    Yes, as in too much relief.

    Just tell Rob what strings and gauge you want and he'll set it up as desired. The neck should be fine.
