Hi John, the neck on my 'Clipper' is perfectly straight, perhaps because it has only had gut and now nylon strings fitted during its life. I hope you have nylon strings fitted, the neck was not designed to take the stress of steel strings. If you slacken the ebony wedges it may be possible to reset the neck slightly so the top nut is true and level with the bridge when viewed from the top nut. I have a couple of old banjos where the neck has a slight twist and have struck a 'happy medium' by shifting the neck slightly, but as you say, if it does not effect the sound or playing of the instrument, jobs a good un as they say!
