This is a follow-up to my post on the the 50's Gibson ES 350T "Maybelene". The neck was pulling away about the thickness of a credit card. There is a threaded post for the neck strap button. I was hoping to remove the post, and install a temporary screw to secure the neck while gluing. Not able to remove the post, I decided to leave it intact and use it as is. I drilled a hole in the rubber pad at the end of a 30" wood clamp. Placed the hole over the post on the neck end and over the metal bracket for the bridge on the butt end, glued the neck joint, tightened the clamp, and Waa-Laa, the joint is tight. She's setting up and all is looking good. This system or a modification thereof, should work on most hollow body guitars where necks are separating. Top and back body panels were taped for insurance against "popping" on this 70 yr old body.
