    If you don't have a bucket of lacquer thinner finger nail polish remover will work.

    You can buy medium CA in black and use that to drop fill damaged areas.

    I don't use it for the actual repair but several applications can fill surface damage, it can be scraped back and wet sanded, then buffed. Here is a broken Fender head, I know it is some sort of poly, I have told the owner I can't completely hide the damage but I'll do the best I can. One big problem with broken necks is that you want the repair as smooth as possible since you are constantly running your thumb across it

    This might be a possibility for you if everything else fails. Fwiw, you would think black is black, but it turns out to be very hard to match.

    Edit to add, Gluboost are really good products for drop filling modern finishes. You can mix colors to try to match the old stuff. Recommended

    I've used JB Weld to fill holes on my guitar repairs. I'm sanding it down right now on a headstock. Nice Bobcat you got there.
