    I have a modulus neck, and due to past owners abuse, the FB has separated from the neck. It is a clean separation, and should go back together smoothly. Is there a certain type of adhesive I should use? How do I get the glue into the hard to reach space?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi Tim,

    I would suspect that a standard two part clear epoxy would work fine.

    Have you tried contacting Modulus to see what they recommend?

    Modulus is of no help for anything in my experience. The neck is already on it's way to micheal dolan for repair.
