Jockson Posted June 21, 2006 Report Share Posted June 21, 2006 I'm making my first guitar and I made a mistake on the template so the body ended up a little shorter than I wanted. Unfortunetaly, I realised that after I cut and routed out the body so I cut the body and glued another piece of wood to make it right. Now, everything is nice and flat and it will be invisible since I was gonna paint it anyway. However, I just heard that gluing endgrain to endgrain is a terribly bad idea and that's exactly the way I did it It's not a big piece (around 4cm at the widest point) and is at guitar's "butt" where it won't be affected by string tension. Here's what it looks like: Any chance of this joint not falling off by itself, lol? I do understand why endgrain to endgrain gluing is weaker but how weak it really is? Any other potential problems with this? Should I throw this guitar into garbage and buy another piece of mahogany? Thanks! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
