I have a bow in the neck. The trust rods is not tighten at all. I have the strait edge from Stewart Mac and its bowed. Any Ideas if this can be fixed or do I have a bum neck?

Did you have the neck under full string tension when you were tweaking the side adjuster?  According to the instructions, you need to loosen the strings.

ZGOZZ,  just call Rob at Warmoth unless this neck is not under warranty.

If you look at number 3 the neck looks like number 3 with no tension on the nut.
When applying Just a a half a turn it does not straiten but get more curved.

No I was following how to set everything back to square one the nut broke the first time I touched it. Not happy about that.

Well, if there is a problem with the neck, you'd better send it back to Warmoth inspect it again  :dontknow:

Looks like I have no choice. First time never had an issue not getting the neck strait.

If Rob wants you to put the neck on he must want you to recheck it after there is string tension on the neck. I would follow that advice.

Gregg, I can understand the sentiment of not wanting to mount the neck. its like 'gosh, this neck is already twisted, if I put it on, it might not be returnable, at all!'. I think its somewhere along that line.

Once a neck (or body) has been altered in any way (finished, drilled.....) it makes it non-returnable per the 10 day satisfaction guarantee, however, if there is a functional defect, that is a manufacturers warranty situation. If the neck is back bowed slightly (little or no relief without truss rod tension) or if there is a small anomaly before the neck is installed getting the neck under string tension can often correct this.
