I guess I should say the reason I wanted to re-do the neck: In a nut shell, it just developed a forward bow--thats it!! The 1st fret and the 22nd fret were higher then the 10th fret--a lot higher. So I wanted to fix this condition and see to it, it never happened again. Vega built this neck with three pieces of wood. They never used a truss rod, back in the day. So I put one in and made it adjustable from the heel rather then the peg head, because I didn't want it to look like there was a truss rod by using a cover plate on the peg head.
