Twisted Neck?

    I just bought a Washburn XB100 and found the set up on delivery to be pretty bad. For the price, this should be expected. According to specs I found at various locations on line, I sould have about .012" clearance or relief. When sighting down the neck it looks like the treble string has alot more clearance or bow than the bass string. If I adjusted the neck on have proper relief on one side the other side would have no relief. The intonation on the treble strings was also very sharp. Does this sound like a warped neck?
  2. I had a warwick bass that had a twisted neck. Although it was on the opposite side as yours (mine was on the bass side) the intonation was dead on and playability was fine. It was just an annoyance knowing it was there, but there were no side effects at all.
