    I believe this fish glue was used on many vintage guitars for such things as fretting

    I remember back in grade 2 (1970 something) I had a bottle of rubber cement similar to those bottles. I used to love the smell of that stuff.......

    I remember over the Christmas break my favorite bottle of rubber cement tipped over in my desk and slowly leaked out over the 2 weeks. By the time I got back the glue had dried and, although somewhat disappointed I was happy that I was able to roll it up into a warped rubber ball.

    You'll have to excuse me for my reminiscing, it is after all Christmas, 10:30 in the morning and I've already started on my bottle of "Union Vanilla Bourbon Whiskey"
