    Haha, hilarious -but I need to defend JB Weld on this.


    Clearly this person didn't know how to use JB Weld properly based on the photo -because WE ALL KNOW -JB can solve anything.

          What a noob. Any luthier knows that that is a job for duct tape.

            At least they didn't try using Bondo. It's the body of the instrument, after all...

                Casein glues tend to creep under tension.

                  I've seen Bondo used to hold LP Jr bridge posts in that were drilled too big.

                      In the old days we used something called plastic wood. I bet Bondo would work as well as that stuff.
                      Of course, dowels are far better than any quick fix.

                        I've used Bondo to make tools - especially clamping cauls for odd shapes. Plastic wood is for carpenters - not luthiers. No self-respecting luthier would use it. You fill a hole in the wood with more wood, and then drill or otherwise machine to proper size and location.

                          Good to know.
                          Of course I was just teasing.
                          Is animal hide glue what was originally used?

                            Yikes!!!!

                            Franklin Titebond II to the rescue. That's all I've used on my set-neck projects, one of which I can now finally paint as the temps are cool enough outside.
