1. Welcome to TalkBass 2014! If you're new here, we just went through a major site upgrade. Please post all concerns and bugs to the Forum Usage Issues forum. We will be monitoring that forum. Thank you for all of your feedback.

    The TalkBass iphone/android app is NOT WORKING currently. We're working on it. Tapatalk IS working, so if you need to use an app, use Tapatalk. Try using your browser though - TalkBass is now 100% responsive to your phone/tablet screen size ;)

    Titebond won't work for that - you'll need to use fibreglass! :D

    He's probably questioning why he took the effort to remove the back....

    The trick to this kind of repair is in getting the inner plies routed out along the length of the join and cross-grained plies laid in. Probably best if the plies were laid on opposing diagonals. Clamping is a bit of a problem, but if you can manage that the result is some pretty fair firewood.

    This reminds of of a scene from the days when I worked in a bike shop. A father and son came in for a new chain for the son's BMX bike. They didn't know that you break the chain to remove it, and it's not a big deal to reconnect it. Instead, they cut the frame.
