Interesting counterpoint on Titebond (I) vs. Hide Glue
What's probably most important is the Neck Joint, for long term servicing.

Taylor and Collings and some others just went to a nice bolt-on neck on their acoustics.

From the original YouTube presentation, the hide-glue dovetail neck joint isn't necessarily always easier to detach (with heat and water) than Titebond I.  He struggled mightily to get that hide glue loosened in that video.

I'm working on a new guitar right now.  I have more Titebond than I have hide-glue, and I will apportion the glues such that more of the body is built with Titebond, but the neck joint will use hide glue.

I've always used TB Original. Hated hide glue, and the newer TB's

The Revos apparently are designed to clamp railroad ties and pull together horrifically prepared joints
