As the title suggests, my acoustic has a loose pickguard. It is starting to peel of at the edge near the upper bout. What I would like to know is how should I refasten it? What type of glue/adhesive is ok to use? Thanks in advance.

I've used Elmer's Carpenter's Wood Glue on mine. Once for the nut and once because the whole damn head snapped off, still don't know how just found it in the case like that. Its been almost three years and it sounds the same and people don't notice it until I tell them so that should work fine for you.

I'm going to suggest you research this "adhesive" page at Stew-Mac. http://www.stewmac.com/Shopping?actn=search&keyword=adhesives&x=20&y=15

And this one at "Luthiers Mercantile: http://www.lmii.com/CartTwo/Secondproducthead.asp?CategoryName=Adhesives


Wood glue, (at least I wouldn't think it would be), the best choice. Aliphatic resin glues such as "Franklin's Titebond", are really only for raw wood to raw wood adhesion. They perform poorly when used to glue old work together. In your case, it can't hurt to scoot an email off to the maker, asking them what they used to put in on in the first place.

What you're looking for is something to hold plastic to paint, not wood to wood.
