Ok, thanks for the advice, guys. I went ahead and attempted to glue & clamp the main vertical crack because the "crunched" part where the impact occurred along the bottom appears to my untrained eye to only penetrate the finish, not the top wood. In any case, I tried to get some Titebond glue in there as well but it was difficult. In fact, I feel like I wasn't able to get much glue in the main crack either...I guess we'll see in a couple days.

So assuming this worked, I take it the next step is to glue some cleats every 2-3 inches along the underside of the crack? In order to get my hand in there I'll need to remove all or most of the strings from the bridge...is this OK or should I loosen the truss rod first?

Thanks again for all the help!
Tom
