Is Titebond reversible? What are your experiences?
My Engelhardt had a neck break that was DIY-repaired by the previous owner. He said he used Titebond on a recommendation by someone else.
On the "repair", no consideration was given to centering, overstand or angle. The neck is now off-center (pointing toward the treble side) and with a low angle (but the bridge is still 5 3/8" - no table collapse either). Heck, it might be in perpetual motion toward the treble side for all I know.
The Titebond site mentions different varieties of the glue and all seem to have "applied heat" as the reversing factor. But applying heat deep into a neck joint may create more problems than it solves?
I know, and don't disagree, "Get thee to thy luthier, Cheechako". I hate to bother my luthier, at least without good reason. He's always so busy. The Engel is playable, I'm just concerned about future stability. EDIT: Previous owner swore he didn't use screws, or dowels. Butchery Illustrated...
