    Picked up an Inland stock at a show today with a cracked stock

    The stock is actually in very nice shape except for a long crack on the bottom. There is no missing wood. What do you guys use to glue fine cracks? I've got gorilla glue that I don't care for, hide glue and super glue. What would you recommend?

    A crack in that area is usually very hard to conceal. If the crack extends back into the area of the bridge, or where it was removed, you can pin it together there and add strength to prevent the crack from opening when twisted. There are other fixes, such as fiberglass mat in the channel. These are to add strength…..the crack will likely always remain visible.

    The crack is so small that it is nearly invisible. That is not a problem. I have threaded brass rod for reinforcing the bridge; again, not a problem. I asked about glue only! I know how to do the rest.

    Superglue sucks. Tried it many times.
    It's good for fixing finish blems on guitars.
