Hi. A while back I made a thread about my acoustic guitar that got a nasty crack in the neck. You recommended me to glue it together myself, and I decided I'd give it a shot. Now, I happen to have free access to this wood glue, but I have no idea what it is or if it's suitable for guitar repair. I only have these pictures of the bottle at the moment:





I tried googling it but found nothing. I was told that it's proper wood glue, but I'm a skeptic. I'd like to know if you'd recommend it before sticking it inside my guitar.

I can't read it either That's the problem. I hoped someone would recognize the bottle. I'm pretty sure it's wood glue all right, but there's good glue and bad glue. And I have no idea which one this is.

I use Franklin Titebond.

It does look like wood glue from the aplication pictures, but with out knowing I wouldn't chance it

Yeah, practically everyone recommended Titebond for me.

If I can make sure that it is wood glue, you'd say I could use it? Even if I wasn't sure about all of the other details.

Well it depends on what type of wood glue (there are several varieties) it is.

I thought so, hence I made this thread. I think it has been used to repair furniture before. That's everything I know.

Have you got any scrap wood lying around that you could try it out on before you try it on your guitar?

I don't think so. I have no problem buying the Titebond, I'll probably do it anyway, but since I can have this glue for free and I have it at hand right now, it would've streamlined things a bit.

Woodglue varies widely and includes some types that expand to fill, etc.

If you don't know the glue, don't use it.

Sorry for being a bit late, didn't notice the reply. Sure, I'm just going to buy a bottle of titebond when I get the chance.

Hope I'm not too late to the party on this. I have used this glue before. It is crap. It is similar to gorilla glue in that it expands like spray foam insulation as it cures. BUT it does not dry hard like gorilla glue. When it is dry it is somewhat rubbery and soft. Don't use this glue for instrument repairs. Stick with the titebond or old brown hide glue.
