    Hi all
    Just wondering what glues other builders use for instrument construction, whether they be:
    traditional animal glues, urea formaldehyde , PVA, epoxys , resorcinol or other.
    Do you have a favourite glue?
    Are different glues used in different parts of the instrument.?
    Do you think glue type effects tone greatly?

    I use urea formaldehyde for all joints except the nut.
    cheers
