Is my neck twisted? If so, need I worry?

    Ive looked at the photos, honestly I feel like it's twisted and not the nut.. I'm looking at the headstock versus body.. the headstock seem to be at an angle..

    How about laying the guitar down the floor, if the neck/headstock isnt twisted, then it should be lying horizontally level, if not, then you'd see..

    I did this with my casino, that I thought have a twisted neck... but I measured the body (horn) distance from the floor on both sides, and both are the same..

    Like this..

    Yup. That's how it looks to me, too. (See post #37.)

    On yours, Dreaming, it looks like it could be the nut. Can't really tell from the picture, but it sounds like you've figured it out.

    yessir. Previous owner didnt mention he had a new bone nut cut for it. So it made an optical illusion

    The line at the bottom of the nut IS parallel to the body of that guitar, it is just the radius at the top of the nut that isn't straight.

    Yes sir, thats why I know the nut was cut correctly on my Casino, but at first glance it was making an optical illusion that the neck is twisted..

    but the neck of acoustic of the OP seems to be twisted
