Glue used to glue on wings?

Discussion in 'Luthier's Corner' started by Tommygun_ted, Feb 22, 2018.

  1. In an attempt to save part of my first bass, which has an incorrectly installed bridge and badly warped neck, I want to cut the wings off of it and glue them to a warmoth blank body. What kind of glue would you use for this? I know thunderbird are built this way so I know there is an option our there that would work for me. Thanks in advance! Cheers.

    I suggest hanging it on a wall and enjoying the memories. :)

    You could throw the bass at a luthier and ask him to make a new neck for it and sort out the bridge....But it might be cheaper and simpler to go and get a similar looking but already fixed and working bass.
  4. I'm not sure that it's worth the effort just to salvage a little bit of wood from the existing body. It would be easier to just build a whole new body.

    But if you're dead-set on going down this road, PVA glue (Titebond) should work fine assuming the wings dry fit to the body with no gaps.
