    Any advice on gluing a Spalted Maple laminate top for a solid body bass guitar? Should I fill in any holes with epoxy or something else? After sanding, will several coats of a waterbourne spray lacquer would make a good finish???

    Use Titebond for laminating and fill in holes and/or punky areas with epoxy or CA glue.

    Matt Schmill used those methods he recommended (I'm assuming) for a Spalted Maple core, and with the exception of a fewobviously difficult spots, the work is amazing! I'd follow what he recommended for working with Spalted Maple.
