: Bummer! The scroll to my plywood bass was busted off this weekend. It was a clean break that can easily be glued back on, however, before I do so, I wanted to check and get recommendations for the best wood adhesive for this.

: Thanks!


Typically hide glue is recommended for all instrument repairs, because the joint can be heated and the instrument disassembled in the future. However, I would probably not bother, assuming the fit is perfect and you don't expect that it will be necessary for it to be taken apart for a re-repair in the future. A modest dose of yellow wood glue would probably be my choice.

However, if you want, there is a brand of bottled hide glue available at most good-sized hardware stores. Just be sure to check the back of the bottle for its expiration date, because unlike most glues, this stuff loses strength with age.
