    Hi everyone,

    Question. My stripped '07 epiphone wilshire fell on its head and as you can see on the pictures it got hurt pretty badly. When I put pressure on its neck, the crack becomes somewhat larger, but it's too narrow to place something between the crack so I can put glue in it. Someone adviced me to drill 2 small 2mm holes in the crack so the glue can really get in there, but I'm not sure if thats the way to go. Any suggestions?

    Thanks!

    Sander

    Cracked on both sides, hey? Yikes. Don't suppose you can open up the cracks a little with clamping pressure so you can get some glue in there?

    Yeah, cracked on both side and all the way down the pickup route. :/
    I figured it'll be best to don't diy a thing and just bring it to a luthier.
