Hey, I have a Flea, and the fretboard is coming off of the neck. How can I repair it? Can I just hot glue it? Or what's the best approach?

Thanks!

I have heard that the company uses a special formula glue to hold them together. I would contact them and see what they say.

Don't know what flea ukulele is but, if you was trying to fix yourself Depending how its coming off the neck i would use some wood Glue our gorilla glue. Do not use hot glue. Without removing the fret board and reguleing it I would try to fill in as much glue in the lifted gap as possible, and then use some Clamps. You want to target the pressure of the clamps to the lifted joint so that it would hold the pieces in place so that the glue can cure with the pieces being held in place with the clamps. Even allot heavy duty rubberbands would work. Also make sure your clamp pressure points don't damage the wood direct use something between as shock absorber if necessary.
