No, Emilio didn't do that for Branford. It was done at the factory. It's not a good idea to bend a neck on a straight soprano. You'd need a mandrel to do it right. I've had it done with some success. However the metal on the top of the bend is not what it used to be.
Like Steve said, just buy a 62r.
