          I suppose you could try to plane the fretboard so it's level - i.e. parallel to the strings - but you'd still have to deal with the twist as far as playing feel, and the twist could (likely will) get worse. Straightening a twisted neck is problematical. Sounds like replacement time.

            hey warrior poet. That was my first thought. But I am a cheap bastard so I'd like to fix it if possible.

                Doc Jeffery , the guitar is an older Bullet series strat. made in China. I like it because it is very light and has a great sunburst finish. A new neck is not totally out of the question though it would need some setup work also,which I am not experienced at,ie. fret leveling etc. Any help would be great thanks.

                  well you could take and clamp the neck and the body to something strait and keep it tight and your neck will straiten itself out. but sence its twisted once it is more likely to twist again
