neck bending?

Post by golfer » Thu Aug 26, 2004 8:28 pm

I have read a few guitar reviews on this and other sites saying something like "It has a thin neck and when I'm rocking really hard it causes the neck to bend...this guitar sucks!"

Am I missing something here? Is that not what a truss rod is for? Or are these people referring to a different phenomenon on a guitar other than a required truss rod adjustment? I have never heard of a neck "bending" although I am aware that occasionally the truss rod has to be adjusted to straighten out the fingerboard.

thanks all!
