    Excellent! You are a friend indeed! I have a hard case that I put pannier hangers on for transporting instruments on a bicycle.
    Best Regards, Maurice

    Is there any reason not to use metal splines in this kind of situation? More strength and the grooves are only 1/4".

    Stan, you probably could use metal, but he glue choice would be what it is for metal to wood in a high stress situation and it would be hard to "make it disappear" after finishing. The wood splines provide excellent glue surface in a way that's very supportive of the need with tiny enough flex to be resilient and once contoured and refinished, they are "gone" from view. And there's that tone thing. Wood will likely have less impact on sound than metal would in this situation.

    Carbon fiber would be another alternative, but it's generally used in the longer portion of necks when extra stiffness is required, not for a repair like this.
