whats exactly wrong with it? if the intonation is gone (so your open note, 12th and 24th frets arnt the same notes) then id take it to a music shop.... dont try adjusting the neck yourself

i scalloped my own fretboard, still havnt restrung it yet though

if the woods warped, i think you may need a new neck... www.warmoth.com stocks them

expensive if the neck is really bad...

we allready discussed this thru Pm's, you should take your guitar to your dealer or something or maybe someone who really knows a lot about guitars.

maybe if you're lucky the problem can be solved with adjusting the thruss rod.

Hey man dont fuck with it and make it worse, just take it to a store and have them do it. I think I know what yuou mean buy how its like crowned like a 2x4. you will probably have to buy a new one which will be quite some money. You should just sell the guitar if its not alot of money and buy a new one. Good Luck Man!!!!

I decided not to listen to you guys (sorry) and triewd to adjust the neck my self... Now it keeps the tuna a LOT better and I also changed my strings... I'm happy! Well, It hink I'll take it in a store and let them do thew rest or then Ill just sell it... I've actually always wanted that dean which Dime used to have... Its just something for me! Well, anyway, my axe keeps the tune MUCH better even with new strings and its not that bad anymore. The Nrck is quirte straight now!

hey I was the only guy that told you to try adjusting the thruss rod man

I think you would be better off getting a new guitar, cuz if the neck is still fucked and you need a new one, it's gonna cost you dearly.
