Hey guys, I want to know if somebody knows some kind of "liquid wood"material so that I can fix my neck's position... Let me explain myself...

As some of you who replied to my message about my strings being a little "moved" know, I like doing all my guitar-things by myself, even those things not lets say "noob-recommended". So I have dismantled my guitar a whole bunch of times, but to not get off-topic, I've taken the neck of my guitar out a couple of times and put it again as a normal thing... Apparently, nothing happenned, but when I recently took it out again because my strings were not in a normal position (high E like 4mm of the neck and low E almost 1 mm... blink.gif ), I discovered that the neck has more than 4 holes (1 for each screw)... The reason was that I re-screwed the neck last time but didn't do it as they were positioned before... So now I have like 8 holes, and the problem is that my neck is not as I would want it to be. I want to take it off, check the string position and rescrew it perfectly... BUT, with those holes in there, I think it would not be a wise thing to do.

So getting back to my request, now that you know my situation... Do you know if I can fill those holes with a material, let it harden, and then do what I explained so that I can set my neck straight?

Thank you guys! I appreciate any help rolleyes.gif

stick a bunch of light matches in there. no kidding - that wood is very soft, and will fill and plug the holes.

matchstick wood with some superstrong glue will do the trick.

I also already heard about people using matches for this, I have to admit though that I would not really feel fine with this, somehow this idea is scary for me wink.gif

The best way to fix the problem is to drill the holes out larger ( 1/4 inch usually is big enough) and install pieces of wooden dowel into the holes (glued in). Dowel rods come in 1/4 inch, they will fit snugly.
Sand the dowels down flush with the back of the neck. Position neck...drill new holes.

Use clamps so it doesnt move when drilling new holes.
