My friends acoustic guitar head was stepped on & broken off.

So he's going to try to do it himself because the guitar is under $200.

What kind of glue?

Any useful tips?

wood glue.

and depending on how it broke it probably isnt going to work, the tension in the strings is too great.
My Gear:
Gibson Faded Flying V
"Dante's Inferno" Iceman
Fender Hot Rod Deluxe 112
etc.

I can't imagine anything worse than shagging to Mark Knopfler.

Maybe shagging Mark Knopfler, but that's about it.

there are so many different kinds of wood glue.

how is titebond III? Good for headstock repair?


The glue is stronger than the wood, so the wood bill break before the glue does. (atleast /w titebond III)

If you do it correctly it will be stronger than it was before. Depending on the break, it may not be appropriate for gluing, and your friend would need to do something like this

EDIT- Titebond works fine, but nobody seems to agree on whether Titebond, Titebond II, or Titebond III is the best.

I suggest not screwing with the UGer with the best name on the site.

Titebond Original FTW
aye. the other formulations have improved properties in some areas that are not important for this use. but they are not as strong.
