Hey gents, this is my first post on TGP despite being a member for the last two years. That being said I've gained a ton of knowledge and gear (lol) over these past two years. Got a question for the masses. I build Ukuleles and I am prepping to build my first guitar in the coming months so I am no stranger to wood but am no expert either.... hmmm...where to start.... In 2011 while on a missions trip to Samoa my Taylor 714CE (built in 2005) was run over and as a result the headstock was cracked. fastforward to last week. I pulled it out of the case and seeing as I had some time on my hands I fixed it. Cleaned it, bonded it with titebond, and clamped it nice and snug and let it cure for 24 hours and it came out great. I did a bit of sanding and unless you really look for the it, you would never know that it had been repaired. I am currently pore filling the rosewood and about to lay down some sealer and then nitro, but thats for a different set of questions. A buddy of mine asked me the other day, "are you sure that it will hold under pressure?" I told him, "of course" BUT as has happened too many times, the question caused me to doubt a bit. I was thinking in terms of reinforcement, to drill .125" holes in-between each tuner hole (in 3 locations) and inserting bonding .125" carbon fiber rods. But not sure if it even needs to be reinforced. The headstock thickness is +.600" What do you guys think? Does it even need to be reinforced? If so, what would be a good method to accomplish that? Please let the opinions and advice flood in. Appreciate your time and advice. Thanks in advance!
