Flame Maple Neck blank-Bowed
I have a really nice piece of Flame maple 30"x5"x1" that I was going to use for a neck on my next Tele build. The only problem is it has a slight bow about 8-10 inches from one end. It was straight when I got it a few months ago. Is there anyway to straighten it out? Does it need to be run through a Jointer or Planer? I have a planer. I layed it on a flat surface and put a board on top of it with weights for a few weeks but bow is still there. What is the mininmum thickness I need for neck with a Rosewwod fretboard? Any suggestions?
