Hi Fabio,

If you had a dead straight neck when you started and then you compression fretted that would give you a backbow. The idea behind compression fretting is that you can make a neck without a truss rod straight by the use of oversized frets.

In your case, because you have a dual-action truss rod, compression fretting is really unnecessary. So, if I were in your situation, I would remove the frets that you have installed, and widen your fret slots slightly so that the fret wire you are planning to use fits in the slots. This way you won't have to worry about compression fretting (or getting rid of the backbow caused by the compression fretting) and you can use your truss rod to adjust your neck relief.

I hope this helps
