I have a dilemma. I'm not sure how I want to approach this repair. The patient is a vintage Vega archtop that had a run in with my client's two year old. Alas, the Vega is need of some repair, and I am in need of some advice. As you can see, the neck heel snapped quite cleanly and fits back together rather nicely. The neck/body joint (NBJ) is a wedged mortise and tenon, not a dovetail. Most of the heel is secure in the mortise. It appears that there is plenty of gluing surface to create a strong bond. I have two thoughts on this repair: Just glue it back together. Or remove the rest of the heel, insert a spline between the broken off piece and the neck under the fingerboard tongue and glue up. I will be using hide glue. Has anyone done a similar repair and what was your approach?
