i just got a Gibson SG and the only problem with it is that the cover of the D-string Machine head on the back is off, revealing the gear and stuff.

i went to a music store, and they gave me one from an Epiphone (they didn't have the one i needed) for 10 bucks. the only problem is that it does have some differences, that i could certainly do without.

then, i thought i could put the back back on, and it would work fine, which it would, if i could figure out what to attach it with. i was going to use super glue, but i don't have any. what other things could i use?

one thing i have is Duco Cement* (that's like glue, but i'm not sure if I should use that)

would super glue even work?


Thank you to whoever helps me.


btw: Duco cement is not like cement you pour in the ground

I wouldn't recommend sticking a guitar back together with cement. The super glue will probably do the trick, but you need to be careful that it doesn't mess with the gears.

Why did you need a new cover? Did you lose the old one?

I would not reccomend using glue of any sort, the cover is the wrong brand and doesn't fit, that is that.

Try to order a new cover, either from the store or online, if you can't do that I'd suggest getting a whole new tuner off of ebay (shouldn't cost that much) or allparts or rsguitarworks or something.

If all else fails, just leave the cover off.

i didnt get a new cover. they gave me a whole new machine head, and that's because the old
cover broke off.
but i had to return the other one becaue it wasn't right.
and i would order a new one, but, i kind of want to have it fixed by sunday morning. and you cant order a single one, you'd have to get a set of 6.
and leaving it off, won't work.

so i tried the duco cement, and it wouldn't stay, even after i left it over night.

so now, i'm going to get some super glue that will work.

i've wanted a gibson SG for my whole life, and i don't intend to have a machine head stop my from playing it.


just out of curiosity, is it possible to weld it back together.
