One old codger who has been a luthier of years mentioned that he used a dab of Shellac on the neck instead of Glue, especially the instant setting Synthetic stuff which I hate doing as it is so permanent and it strips wood out of the groove for the nut, depending on the amount used.
I thought. WOW. what a great idea and easy to "undo" or repair.
Then I thought about good old horse glue, even easier on the wood, etc, than shellac, or so it would seem to me.
Has anyone here used either? With bone or synthetics?
I just replaced the nut and the two hold downs for strings 1-4 with Tusq XL with integrated lube and WOW!
