I think I can fix it. (I hope)
What a total bummer !!
I am sure it will be fix-able ( For me it would be a luthier jobbie .....but I know you woodsmen are pretty darned handy )....but what a hassle.
Good luck with it Matey.............its a lovely guitar & worth fixing

Real bad luck. It's a weak spot up at the headstock there of course. But yeah - it should be fixable, and glued wood when done properly can be even stronger than the original wood.
Having seen that carnage I'm glad my Hagstrom did that sideways dive off her stand a few months ago onto a carpeted floor.
I know it can be fixed, even more the guitar will be better than new. I will never break on the same spot again.
I'll keep my fingers crossed for ya :)
^I pretty much literally made that face when I saw the picture....
Good luck fixing it up!

Not far. It just fell over, but it landed face down, with the headstock past the edge of the stage.tradrrr wrote:Ouch. How far did that fall from? Did it just land on the neck?
A funny thing, after the Ibanez bit the dust, I grabbed my Strat, and two songs later, broke the high E string. I was almost afraid to pull out the Casino. The only spare string I had was a B string at about .14 or so. It worked though, and I will restring the whole guitar this week.
I did eventually nerve myself up to pull out the Casino, and I guess I had used up all my bad luck. Nothing dire happened for the rest of the night.
Not yet. I just stuck it in the case for a while.(couldn't bear to look at it )DeaconBlues wrote:Any progress on the neck repairs, Bb?
As soon as i find the right clamps, though, I am about ready to get on it.
Grtz and goodluck
OOh my ...... i hope you can repair it.

I now it cane be fikst and it will get better as a new one, but no nobody wants that......
I'll keep my fingers crosed for ya.
