Crack Cross Stitch Professional Platinum [BEST]
this is when i feel i need to use some extra glue. we know how important the playability and performance are in an acoustic instrument, and we will always try to be as gentle as possible. but when a crack is too deeply within the body of the instrument, it becomes very difficult to make a repair that will not compromise the musical integrity of the instrument and will do so without the use of a filler. if the crack is too much damage, i may opt to use a fine-grit sanding wheel to smooth out the crack and then a little wood filler to fill in the crack. filler is helpful because it smooths out the surfaces. it may also help the crack to heal a little by closing the gap, in addition to helping the repair last longer.

when i started working on instruments, i had lots of practice with pitch pipes, and i learned to tell when the pitch pipe was all the way open, and that was good enough for me. but after working on guitars for years and learning to notice the different sounds, i find that i need a better way to know when i have opened a crack to a point that i need to do a little more work. to me, it is best to use a fine-grit sanding wheel to smooth out a crack to a point that it is just barely touching the body of the instrument, and then i will use a wood filler to close the gap. i have also found that i can use little bits of putty to fill in the crack, but i prefer using wood filler because it really smooths things out and then the putty just keeps a little gap open and eventually it will be worse than if i had used wood filler. i can also use a little wood filler and sanding to smooth out the wood but it makes it a bit less stable and it will probably start to split if i sand too much, which i dont do.
