Is it possible to correct the warped fret board? Or nah? All purely academic, of course. Let's also say hypothetically that I'd loosened the strings the next day. Asking for a frie-oh forget it. It was me. I did that. Like 8 years ago. Wrote it off as wrecked, but I got time now (clearly) and I'm bored so why not ask for old times sake.
So let's say I left an electric guitar out in the rain overnight...hypothetically...

If it's bowed or reverse-bowed it's probably correctable, assuming the guitar is worth the time and trouble. Just adjusting the truss-rod might possibly fix it . Or lowering the bridge, different gauge strings, a combination of those things, etc. If it's actually warped, as in misshapen, it's more difficult if not impossible. It might be a good reason to learn to play open-tuned slide guitar!
Un-plugged is not the same as never-was-plugged-in-to-begin-with.

Same ol' Derf here, alt profile because some big pud accidentally perma-banned me (no hard feelings, sixy =p) and signing up to this place again is nigh impossible. Anyway.
Strung that old puppy up and it still plays okay, but buzzes like a bastard any higher than the 15th fret. Haven't fucked with the bridge height yet. Worth trying to fix, or play it as it lies? I don't hit the high notes often, but if I can get them back without buying another guitar, I'd give it a go. Hit me with that cold hard truth, y'all.
