GUEST,Henry Tech: violin help? (10) RE: Tech: violin help? 22 Feb 07

Matt, cut your losses. Remove the back, repair the cracked neck block with white glue, then screw (from the inside) and glue the neck back on. Yes, I did say screw (to hell with traditionalists)and again use white glue as it is stronger than the wood itself. You can glue the back on with hide glue to satisfy the unproven tone issue! This apparently crude approach will leave you with fewer finish repair issues (hopefully). Ignore any unhelpful suggestions about five stringers. Good luck!!
