    I have a guitar with a tight crack in the neck. It's parallel to the 2 piece neck/headstock joint, but not on it. It has a separate glued on fingerboard that keeps it iin one piece. My question is this: Since the crack is sooo tight, how should I apply glue to the crack, and what glue would be best for this purpose? Thanks for your help.

    Anyone? StewMac has syringes that is good for applying glue in cracks, and I dont want to dissassemble my neck if possible. Anyone hae any opinions on the right glue to use? Hide glue, or just regular wood glue. Also, would I have to dilute it any? Any help is appreciated.

    Well, I got it done. Liquid Hide glue in a syringe using an 18 needle can get in the crack. Clamp overnight, and it's good to go.
