Sounds like a very bad idea to me. You would probably end up with a kink in the bottom side of the tube etc... Just buy a 62R. I've got a really nice one for sale :)

My tech in the UK has a Mk vi soprano on which he has bent the neck. I think he filledit with ice. He then had to bend some of the key mechanisms. It looks ok to me.

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.
