Headstock Crack

Recommended Posts

Modern glues are surprisingly strong! I suppose regular Titebond would do the trick nicely. Just remove the hardware, apply glue to the crack so that the inside is totally covered and clamp properly. You should see squeezeout all around the crack, that's a sign that there's glue everywhere. Wipe the excess off with a damp rag, tighten and wipe again.

For clamping make a mirror image of curved side of the headstock and use a slat wrapped in cling film on the crack side. After the glue has properly dried for overnight, redrill the screw holes and open the tuner hole with a reamer or round file so it's snug but not too tight.
