    Titebond or traditional hide glue would be used in such a repair.
    What many zero information DIY'rs don't understand is that musical instruments are MEANT to be taken apart.
    In the last 40 plus years I've seen hot glue guns used, epoxy (sometime mixed with other stuff), Gorilla Glue (which expands as it cures), various super glues, you name it.

        Only 2 things you need to know in life:

        If it moves and it's not supposed to - use duct tape
        If it doesn't move and is suppose to - use WD40

          Gorilla glue is a brand, not a type of glue. They sell multiple different glues - original brown polyurethane, superglue/cyanoacrylate, epoxy, and a regular white wood glue. I haven't noticed the gorilla brand wood glue expanding as it cures - it's just like any other wood glue I've used.

            JB Weld got that sweet tone.....

            All you fools don't know what a genius this kid who made this repair was.

              I can't remember what type of Gorilla Glue I had but I had used a little (and I mean a minimal amount) to hold down some tolex on a guitar case in some curve spots where it had lifted. Yeah, it expanded alright. Now there's a lump under the handle. One of these days I'll cut that out of there and redo it with the right adhesive.

                I think he's referring to the original -Gorilla Glue was one type of glue for the first 10 years in the US or so and it was gross for most things, then they expanded out to all the types you see now.

                    Looks like a typical 'dad' repair.

                      I don't know who did it, or when it was repaired, and I don't know how long it sat broken in the case - therefore, I can't answer that.

                        Honestly, as the resident JB Weld expert (Not for guitar repairs however) that repair is only a couple of years old -based on the freshness and uniformity of the color

                            WD-40 is a terrible type of lubricant for most things except getting things initially moving that are stuck -which is what is designed for.

                                Even as a penetrating lubricant, WD-40 is mediocre at best. There’s a lot of stuff out there that’s much better.
