I am in the middle of making my first neck. The neck has been roughed out, head stock veneered and bound, fingerboard attached and bound. Unfortunately I have some relief (backbow) in the neck. I realized I didn't check the flatness of it before I attached the fingerboard. I have tightened the truss rod with no effect, which I am thinking is because the neck is not shaped yet and there is too much material for the truss rod to deal with. At this point I am reluctant to continue if I won't be able to get this thing straight ultimately. Is this an unusual situation? Should I continue and expect the truss rod to make the required adjustment? Should I pull the fingerboard and try again? I will try to post a picture. Any advice is appreciated!
