Got it. Wood glue. Titebond. Over and out.
Thanks. No wonder the repair recommendations did not make sense to me. Def not just finish cracks........................
Update: I'll post pics soon I promise... I glued (titebond) and strapped it like was advised, I didn't see glue come back out but I was afraid to strap it any tighter.
I bought this Epi G400 to be a project guitar so here's what I've done:
Tusq nut, Resomax bridge, string butler, and Seymour Duncan Antiquity pick ups. I also drilled the bigsby for easier string changes.
The pick ups sound phenomenal! Tuning is still temperamental, but not real bad... I'm hoping tuning stability improves after the nut and bridge gets worn in.
I'll post pics tomorrow!
Thanks for all the info!!
Nice work Harry. Did the crack close a little when you applied tension to the strap ? How is it now, sturdy, nothing moves ?
slightly tuning issues sometimes also refers
to the bigsby.
