Neck relief on a 7VWH

My 7VWH has < 0.06mm of relief measured at the 14th fret. In my (very limited) experience in setting up guitars shouldn't up bow be more prevelant towards the 7th fret and back bow at each end of the fret board ? The 14th seems to be neither !

I wouldn't exactly call .06mm neck "relief"

Ok, my concern wasn't so much at the measurement but the location ... is that normal at the 14th fret ?

Dunno, I can't think of any reason to measure it that far up the neck

Well did you have a question? The ones you asked don't really make sense and you're assuming every neck gives the same type of relief
