Repairing top horn on rg1527 body
Hi guys. I'm new here so hope it's in the right place! Just bought an RG1527 body with some damage. Initially it was just cosmetic damage, some gaffer tape marks, scratches, bad rebinding job and some paint imperfections. When it arrived, the top horn was snapped! Held on by the paint job. I've been refunded and allowed to keep the body, but just wondering how to repair it. The guy said to use titebond glue and clamp it. It has snapped along the grain. Any suggestions? I also wanted a slight arch top to this body, which I could probably achieve with a veneer sanded down to the body on the sides... Thoughts? Thanks!
