The amount of twist in the neck can be measured pretty precisely by noting the difference in the relief between the strings across the board. I guess you could do it some other ways too, but this is pretty darn good. I always kind of monitor it when I change strings. Not that it changes much.


That is exactly how my tech checked and sorted it.

Good you got it all worked out. A number of my mahogany necks seems to have a very slightly more relief on the low E than the high e... works for me.

Wood, I'm speculating, is subject of some climatic changes as it ages as well as internal stresses. Hard maple necks appears to be much more stable...especially the laminated maple necks.
