    I was wondering if anyone knew if Allparts glues or uses epoxy on their rosewood board guitar necks.
    I have several Allparts Telecaster I use when I travel via the airlines.
    One of the necks is severely convex and needs to go on the heating block.
    No reason to put an epoxied fretboard on a heating block, the board will
    never come off.

    Thanks

    Have you emailed Allparts? That might be an option if noone responds adequately.

    Actually I've had the neck for at least 15 years. It was fine until 2011. At that time the airlines actually broke the body of the Telecaster, they cracked into 3 pieces. The neck was put aside until a month ago when I noticed how convex it had become. My luthier
    who is also a good friend told me he could fix it as long as the fingerboard wasn't epoxied to the neck.

    No idea on that; @JuneauMike probably had a good idea.

    Welcome.

    I wonder about the cost of trying to repair it when you can get a new one for around $200. You can salvage the tuners. If the repair isn't perfect, the money is still spent and you have nothing.

    My Luthier is a good friend. He told me if he can't fix it on the heat press he will not charge me. Also if he fixes the neck he's gonna do a fret leveling. Total charge would be $150. So it kinda pays to see if he can get the neck back in working order.

    I'm pretty sure Allparts necks are made by Hosco in Japan. Might be worth an email.
