FLY GUITARS / Re: Fly Artist with glue delamination issue....
« Last post by Patzag on August 23, 2017, 10:35:16 AM »
I hate to bear bad tidings but it will get worse.  It happened to one of my guitars and I had to send it in for repair, back when the custom shop still was in operation.

I wonder if any of the workers from that era are still around and would take it on.  Possibly Sharon at Shazrock might be able to either handle it or recommend someone who could.  And if anyone could locate the old team members, that might be a resource to get the guitar fixed.

On mine, they had to strip the fretboard and re-glue and repaint.  Yours looks marginally less problematic but once the seal is open, humidity and degenerating glue will warp the fretboard further.

It is a beautiful instrument so probably would be worth investing in repairing.  But if you can't find the right person, then negotiate a refund.

Here's that link I promised.

Looking at that thread, superglue is definitely not the way to do this.  There are glues that are specifically formulated for laminating carbon fiber to wood. 
(Very likely this bad batch was just a mixing issue with the gun or tube.  Easy to miss if you're not specifically looking for it.)

I don't think you'll need to have the fretboard removed, at least from what I see in the pictures. 

That makes the fix/clamping easier.  I thought of a way to clamp that doesn't involve vacuum bags but should still keep things level and uniform.

Your high fret is likely a paint chip or wood fiber that got lodged underneath the fretboard.  Doesn't take much!  Once removed, the fret should be fine.

jb, I'd be willing to take a crack at your mojo too.

jb, looks great!  Albert, thanks as always- so glad your parker is now stable!  If you wanted to buy another parker, jb is a great guy, and that one looks nearly perfect.

I used some black Auto touch up paint after the first application of superglue, to get the white crack more black to blend. Then layered about 4 coats of more superglue, let it dry. Then used the razor blade method to hone it down close, then wet sanded as you described with about 5 papers, increasing fineness each time. Then used Maguires rough polishing compound, then fine compound. Rubbed the heck out of it and then waxed with little carnuba auto wax. Not perfect but about 100% better than it was!  Thanks for your help!

Nice Axe, JB !  I've never seen an Artist in that finish before.
