    hey there, im having trouble figuring out whats up with a few necks. pictures posted on bottom. ya, i cant tell if its a neckthrough with a layer of the same wood as the wings put underneath and ontop of the neck, or if its glued on, or something i didnt think of before. if anyone can shed some light on this question of mine i would be extatic. they're all d huff basses im using as examples.

    ok, so its glued in? what kind of glue would hold it stronenough so that the tension of the strings wouldnt pull it off?

  8. Aliphatic resin is stronger than the wood itself, if the surfaces are prepared correctly. And a real b**ch to get apart...damn near impossible.
