SawDust_Junkie Posted March 9, 2005 Report Share Posted March 9, 2005 When building a guitar neck, what type of glue do you guys use to glue the fret-board to the neck. I would think that it would be advisable to use a glue that can be steamed to allow the fret board to be removed if neccessary (in the case of problems with the truss rod or a damaged). What glue would everyone recommend. On my two projects so far, I have used TiteBond III. I have had good results with it, but according to the packaging it is made for use in marine applications to a degree, so I believe it is at least semi-waterproof. This would make it almost impossible to remove the fret board at a later time if neccessary. I am aware that alot of luthiers use hide glue, but that seems to be very labor intensive, as you have heat the glue to apply it, and I also don't have a glue pot or anything like that. I have seen some bottled hide glue that does not reuire heating, but have read unfavorable comments about it. So, I was just curious as what type of glue everyone here would recommend.
