Hey guys! This is my first post. I am looking at a nice guitar that has a neck issue. It is pulling away from the body slightly. Can this be repaired without a complete neck reset? Can glue be injected into the crack and clamped? I have a specialty glue that is used to inject into loose furniture joints that does a wonderful job and I wonder if this glue could be used in this application. Any ideas on this matter?
Thanks for the opinion. I was thinking that a complete reset was called for, but didn't know if there were options. The crack in the joint is about business card thickness right now. Just wanted another opinion before I made an offer on the guitar.
Is it a dovetail, mortise & tenon, or some other type joint, is the question?
The only glue I would consider using is Tite-bond of hot hide glue, you may need to remove it in the future.
The right way would be to remove the neck and reglue, to make sure it's a quality repair.
