    Fixed my Guitar :)

    All of you kind folks who expressed your sympathy for my poor guitar will be happy to hear that... I fixed it

    Used some wood glue, Titebond Original, and had it in the jaws of a g-clamp for a week... the finish isn't bad, I managed to smooth it with some wet & dry paper and buffed it up using a pair of old pants and some lemon oil... you can still see the join from some angles but can't feel it when playing.

    Scuse the poor quality pics, camera phone!

    Shouldn't you also have used an A-clamp, D-clamp, B-clamp and a couple of E-claps?

    If I ever break a string (very rare indeed) it will almost always be the G-string on my telecaster....

    If the Titebond doesn't hold use Gorilla Glue. A little bit more expensive but everything else will break before that gives up.

    Thanks for the tip... I think if it got to that point I'd be reinforcing it with dowel too, but I think it's going to hold... there was plenty of surface area.

    This something you've done then?
