Should I Worry

I want to repaint my 570. The neck will be off for a week. Will it warp? Will it setup as well as it does now when it's put back together?

Re: Should I Worry

should be fine, how long do you think the necks sit in the Ibanez factory with no tension on them.

I think it should be alright .... I used to send my oldie strat for spraypaint (not really, it's sunburst) they promise a week but it took one whole month for them to finish... and after i get it I just install it myself and nothing gone wrong with the neck or other parts

Re: Should I Worry

Think about it, a neck is a piece of wood (or sometimes a few pieces). Unless there is a significant change in humidity or temperature, it pretty much just sits there. It shouldn't just warp just like that, unless you are keeping it in constantly changing conditions.

Re: Should I Worry

the unbalanced tension from the truss rod could. but it sound like it would take quite a while for that to make any difference

Re: Should I Worry

No truss rod would definatly not cause it to warp. Ive had my Presitge RG1570 neck sitting on my RG570 body for 2 months now with no strings (cause theres no bridge yet!) and theres absolutly no sign of bow or warping. My understanding is that the strings pull the neck slightly and cause the truss rod to come in to contact with the neck or fretboard and then it does its work. So no tension, no contact.

Re: Should I Worry

If you take a wheel off a car, does it still get worn out?

haha, basically, no, the neck won't take any new attributes, as long as you take good care of it, it should be fine.
