Too much backbow in a neck

    I've encountered a major problem in my parts build (original thread is here: http://www.talkbass.com/forum/showthread.php?t=527711).

    The neck has too much backbow when strung up, and the truss rod is fully loosened. I contacted the original seller of the neck to see if they will replace it, but other than that, is there any possible way for me to fix this? I've tried putting on a heavier gauge string, which helped a bit, but it's still a compromise.
