    I was wondering what to use to glue a stabilized fingerboard to the neck shaft: Titebond wood glue or some epoxy? thanks.

    I'm curious about this too. I've got a stabilized black limba board and maple neck and wasn't sure if tite bond would work or not. I'll watch this thread for a bit. :)

    JP emailed me and says he uses TiteBond to great effect. If it's good enough for him it's good enough for me. Anyone else?

    Yeup. I confirmed with Larry at Gallery Hardwoods , who supplies stabilized fingerboards, that regular titebond is perfectly fine for attaching stabilized fingerboards!

    What about hide glue? And is stabilized wood any more wear-resistant for fretless?
