Bowed Neck, how much is too much?
I went yesterday to the local shop where I was supposed to pick up the old rg 550 i was bragging about last week, here on the forum.
I was checking it once again and became worried about the neck, it is a bit bowed, can't really tell you how much, but you can tell it is.
I'm wondering, how much is TOO much?
I know "something" about manteinance, but this guitar is 20 years old and i'm afraid it's now too late to fix this thin wizard neck. Hope i'm wrong, but I don't want to waste any money, even though it's only 150 euros.
So, if I can fix it with turning the tuss rod, how do I know if this neck is not too bowed to fix? (it didn't seem warped anyways)
there's always another issue, i'm sure you guitar players will understand: this issue will be stuck in my brain every time i'll play it, and even if this will be fixed, i'm sure i'll always have in the back of my mind the idea "owww, the neck was bowed, i'm sure i'm playin like crap because of it..."
