& left in hot cars etc yet still stays straight at the beam.

Worth clamping in a vice & torsioning it back?
The early 200G's had a different material mix and many felt victim to warping.
Any stringing job over 65 lbs would do the trick eventually.
Don't try to torsion it back, it will probably just break at this stage.
