Too much Forward Bow on Stingray?

Discussion in 'Hardware, Setup & Repair [BG]' started by funkysurfer, Jun 19, 2001.


  1. I recieved my new Stingray last week via UPS and it was buzzing big time. Anyway after trying endlessly to adjust the truss rod and saddle height, I got it to stop buzzing. Now when I look down the neck from the top, it looks like its forward bow curves up from about the 7th fret up to the 1st fret. Is this normal? I measured it and it is at Ernie Balls specs. Does everybody else have a considerably visible forward bow? I have seen other necks in the shops and they seem to have a little less bow.
