I contacted Bru about the problem and suggested a temporary fix.
It does look like the truss-rod has been over-tweaked but I can't say for sure until I see the neck. It may be extreme temperature problems.

Please note that some graphite neck basses (around 2000 - 2003) had a 5mm truss-rod that worked 'backwards' so it has been known for people to turn it the 'wrong' way.
When the neck gets worse, they turn it a bit more until something breaks.

I don't know if it is the case here but I'm sure we can fix the problem given time.

Truss-rod / set-up info can be found in the F.A.Q section of our web-site.

Regards, Rob.
