Scarf Joint repair advice

Discussion in 'Luthier's Corner' started by Gallient Knight, Nov 14, 2002.

  1. I have a washburn XB 400 with a cracked scarf joint. Its a very clean split all the way to the board on the E string side, close on the G string. Washburn is going to have it looked at for a waranty repair, and they will sell me a replacement neck for $100.

    This bass is mostly a project for different experments and I was thinking about doing a repair on my own with an understanding that if it goes south I would buy a new neck.

    So my question is, How would you approach this repair? Do I need to completely remove the board and the upper part of the neck, or should I neddle some glue into the joint and then clamp it well?

    I can upload pics if they would help in provide better information.
