    trad Hot hide glue and Rosewood (brazil) and Ebony (gobbon)

    Some say oily woods dont like water based glues and prefer apoxy's...trad hot hid glue is maybe 50% water, has anyone confirmed whether this glue holds down fretboards to maple and mahogany necks well? and if so, is there any prep needed such as wipe with acetone?

    or is this not a good glue to use....i'd like to use it for every joint and aspect of my build if possible....but of course i dont want a fingerboard delam either so.....thx

    will answer this myself, as I ended up using it....it worked fine.....When used for fretboards. I used a caul (in this case, a stewmac metal radisu block-but any thick straight wood would do the same) The hide glue stuck well to even ebony......
