    I hope your repair works out. If it doesn't, I repaired a luthier made guitar w epoxy. If you use a filled epoxy such as Marine Tex or just epoxy w sawdust added, you can clean out useless wood fibers and it w fill the space being stronger than the wood. Marine Tex is so strong you can make speed boats out of it.

    thanks,the glasfibre method would be my plan B...but using carbon rods is way more elegant...

    done! Carbon rod surgery was successful. A set of Duncans (SH-5/SH-2 jazz)..remember: 85$ incl. shipping...[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    damn, the moment I finished the drilling, creamed the rods with glue and slowly slided them in, one by one, was like christmas...

    last step: cutting off the rods,fill the holes with super glue...
