    Please explain how to repair a cracked rib. A local luthier filled it with glue, but the crack is continuing to spread, so I'd like to tackle this on my own.

    im sure the guys who know what their talking about will chime in, but usually things like that need to be replaced or patched i think, see if he cant glue it again to buy you time i guess untill you have to make the big expendature and repair it

    I've had a few cracks in my bass' ribs over the years and glue and clamping is all they needed. None have reopened. It has to be done right.
