FPChris: I would be afraid to "wing it' like that and trust the builder. I have several Chibsons and one has the neck angle to high toward the tail. Making it so the bridge has to be raised way high. The other was slightly crooked and the Low E string pops off above the neck at times around the 12-14th fret around if you bend the string.

iamarawn: Don't see this as a complaint, just some advise. use rubber between them or a better clamp to prevent damage. use clear coat not tru oil or very very thin layers. a good compressor and quality clear coat with a good spray gun will leave, if you can work with it, an epic result. the tru oil you have on it has dents in it. it's a pain to see. if you wan't tru oil, invest in a good polishing device and quality materials for it to get that mirror polish look. Instead of a damp rag, I'd use something like brake cleaner or acetone to carefully remove the glue. works a bit easier. If the manufacturer says 12 hours, wait 24 hours (really, do that).

Tufticles: Aren't you supposed to glue the neck at a certain degree depending on your bridge and pickup placement?

Pete Lucchini: Suggestion: next time use a radius sanding block of the same radius as the finger board to clamp the top of the finger board.
Using a flat clamp on a radius fretted board could cause the fret wires to pop out or flatten.

River Saldono: 4:19 rosewood board is sitting above the body, Big problems from here on out.

Arturo Aldana: How much cost this DIY kit??

Joe “Natures Lawn” M: Is there a way to measure or use a flat surface to get the neck in tolerance that you know of? Almost ready to glue mine and would certainly appreciate any suggestions. And the mention that TiteBond 3 will "creep" and only use the original one? What is that all about. I have 3 and can't find anything negative about it. Thanks

Eduard van Kleef: I feel that you are taking some risk glueing in the neck without any check. The pre-drilled holes imply that there is very limited scope for fixing things through a re-positioning of the bridge later on. Both the neck position and the neck angle could be off...

how de do: glue????

lucomannaro1: Hey Fred I was just wondering (maybe I'll have to see the other videos to know this I don't know) buuut..why is there a cut-out part on the neck? The one you're glueing at 1:51 ?

HalfStepTheory: How do you know how far in to set the neck? Is it just flush with edge of the pickup hole?

Sergio Derewinsky: nice firewood:-)

ktulhu2011: Plastic clamps are Like a 2 inch di*k. Sure you va f*ck a girl with it, but it just won't do the job...

semiLivedj: Maybe put glue on both surfaces and push it in as to drop it in.

Tyler: For anyone watching don't use titebond 2 or 3 it's creeps with time. Titebond original dries hard and doesn't creep like 2. Some say use hide glue but honestly titebond cured harder than the wood in my own testing. I did want to try fish glue though.

John Luke Fabay: Hey Fred, just wanted to ask if the the guitar neck has a truss rod?

kokopiko: I`m not so sure about any glue would work. My luther says you need animal skin or bone glue

Rama Adhiguna: y no bolt on?
