I have removed a misaligned poorly repaired bridge from a 1260 Sovereign. The spruce under the bridge is cratered and gouged from the removal. It's a perfect surface for epoxy, but I'd like to glue on a 'new' bridge with hot hide glue. What is the best prep for the spruce? Can I fair it with epoxy and expect the hide glue to stick? or should I hide glue some graving pieces into the spruce to build up to a smooth finish?

It just doesn't look like a lot of wood is missing. I'd scrape it clean, work glue into the slivers, the separations, and clamp it up.
You're probably right, but I'm going to stand squarely in the amateur camp here. I'm going to overdo it until I learn what I can get away with. Thanks David.
