Headstocks break more often than you might think. It sometimes doesn’t take much: The guitar leans against an amp, somebody walks by and accidentally bumps into it. It tips over, and from the impact, the headstock breaks off.

First, I glued it back on. Because the glued surfaces were rather small, I routed two channels inside the back of the neck were I inserted two pieces of mahogany to stabilize the area. The inserted pieces had to be shaped to fit the neck.

At last, the repaired area had to be refinished.

Now she’s ready to rock again.
