riffster Posted January 5, 2009 Report Share Posted January 5, 2009 (edited) Hello Pg's I have an acoustic that my luthier friend help me build. It has a crack and it is on a five piece neck right in the middle of a thin strip of walnut. the crack runs parallel with the stripe around the first fret. There is no telling how deep the crack is. It has been like this for a year and 8 months while being taken care in its case with a humidifier. The crack runs about 13 cm's. Is it better to make a whole new neck or should we epoxy the crack? My builder friend and I are pretty sure that it was a fluke of a weak piece of walnut. The trussrod is rather large and a little too deep for the neck profile... But its a five piece neck! In the meantime, we loosened the tension of the truss rod and the bulging crack has flattened, but of course is still present. If anyone could help with suggestions it would be great. I miss my guitar and the luthier is of course very nervous. were just trying to take the right course of action. Cheers, Nathan. * I did look at the front page in the repair section and I am not convinced that tutorial should be applied.
