masonchumpia Posted October 21, 2010 Report Share Posted October 21, 2010 This problem is on a Les Paul with trapezoidal inlays. I've had the inlays worked on before, and I believe the person who worked on them used superglue to keep them in there previously, but for some reason two of the inlays have started to lift again. They stand proud of the fingerboard on the treble side by about 1 or 2 mm. I can press them back in so that they are flush with the fretboard surface, but they will spring back up unless they are properly re-glued. I tried to lift them out with an X-Acto knife but they don't seem like they want to come out all the way (the glue on the bass side seems to be holding up better). Ultimately, I want the inlays to stay flush with the fretboard surface again. What is the best way to approach this problem? Can anyone here who's worked on inlays like these before walk me through this? Thanks. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
