Hello everyone! I need some advice here from the glue specialists.

I have received a Michael Kelly acoustic bass guitar with a cracked peghead. Not much different from the classic Gibson crack, but here's the skinny: it was repaired using hide glue -and failed.

I guess I could use cyanoacrilate glue, since its lower viscosity can reach deeper into the crack, but I'm afraid it won't reach the wood but the previous hide glue instead. Is there a way to remove the old hide glue without damaging the binding? Can I just use cyanoacrilate? Or should I use hide glue again? Thank you!
