Titebond is both plenty strong enough for the job, hard enough, and easy enough to get apart when necessary. It's also a lot easier to work with. There are definitely times super-strength glues are appropriate, but I dare say that if Titebond isn't strong enough for a joint on a guitar, you need a better physical joint.

I agree with you there on some of the points you made, but the Selley's 308 wood glue is better for bonding say eg- a Neck thru body guitars ect- were you have to Glue up all the wood's used together to make the neck & or body as one solid structure, for fretboard repairs go with Titebond, But for say a repair were a chunk of the guitar body broke away , Or glueing up woods to make an electric guitar/ bass body- that there will be no need in future to take apart & you want it to last go with the Selley's 308, this glue is best used in place's that never need to be taken apart so make sure when using this glue to keep that in mind Ok! this glue is Super Strong!

Try GluBoost. Specifically design for guitar repair. Gluboost.com to order online.

I have used for several years now for guitars and some furniture repair applications.

Titebond original for bare wood. Whatever you do don't use TB 2 or 3.
