PVA glue

You need to use titebond original or similar glue, glue thats actually for wood.
For the fretboard you need a centre line on both the neck and fretboard - then you line them up and glue it on. You can then cut down the edges with a router.

Thats great that you think metallica rule, but we don't really care or need to know that...

*reported*

Also, I used a plane to get my fretboard straight.
If you don't have a way with a router, try that... but it's harder and you have to be more precise.
I don't remember where I was,
When I realized life was a game.
The more seriously I took things,
The harder the rules became.

Yep.

but basically i need to attach the fretboard and i was wandering is there a way to get it perfectly straight and also what glue should i use.

Set up a jig that will hold your neck flat, then clamp the fretboard down after gluing.

Yes, it is, but PVA will often be misconstrued for craft glue. PVA (Polyvinyl Acetate) is used in a lot of glues, so to avoid confusion (and relentless flaming), just use the brand name of the glue next time. You'll want something like Gorilla Glue or Titebond Original.

Seriously dude... Not the place and considering how you speak, it certainly doesn't seem like any of that is true...

ANYWAY...

Gorilla Glue is a good idea, that stuff can do anything.
