My post title says it all: Fingerboard- Should it be dead flat?
y violin's f-board has a slight bow, so it dips in the middle (deviates from flat) by perhaps 1/8th inch or less. On a guitar, this would be mostly taken out by tightening the truss rod. Obviously, a violin has no trussrod (maybe they should!)
Also obviously, this isn't super-critical on a violin since the strings are so high off the board, but I'm wondering if this can affect overall action, or (worse) intonation.
Should I have a tech flatten my fingerboard?
