Glue is possibly stronger, but it has different chemical structure so possibly some chemicals can dissolve it or make it weaker. These stuff is best to leave to luthiers - the best that you can find mate..

Tell us please what price they asked mate

I wouldn't recommend to repair it (i know it sounds harsh) but I have played a Gibson les Paul with a broken neck that was repaired by a professional and it was really sad: The guitar worked again and everything but it somehow sounded diffrent then before, it lost some sustain and the tone also changed a bit, hard to describe. It was my friends guitar and I knew how it sounded before...

imho the (expensive) repair isn't worth the money to save an epiphone, knowing that it'll never really be the same again. I would take out all the parts you customized (if possible) like your Bareknuckle pups and put them in a new guitar!

Slash had his Gibson Les Paul fixed after broke his neck, and apparently they did a great job repairing.

However, I wouldn't recommend repairing Epiphone, as far as cost is concerned. It would be cheaper to transfer your upgrades to new one.

I feel your pain brother, I too have Epiphone Les Paul and would be heart broken if in the same situation.

On bright side, maybe you can use this as an excuse to upgrade to something even better. smile.gif

Sorry to hear about your Epi sad.gif

The headstock on my Gibson LP Studio got broken once. I took it to the local store, and the guy there glued it right back on. Didnt cost much and i cant even notice a scar where it broke and it plays just fine. I paid around 400nkr for the job, which would be around 60$.

But.. i'm not sure if the same would apply to a break in the middle of the neck. Not sure if that will affect the sound different then a break in the headstock.
Hope the luthier will give you good news. But in any case.. if it's a simple glue job, then it wont cost much.

For what it's worth, here are some pictures of some of my guitar tech's work in repairing really awful damage. He seems to think pretty much everything is fixable.

I just found this, and had to think of this thread.
http://www.ibanezrules.com/tech/setup/crack_neck.htm

Your crack looks worse than that one though. But still I think it's fixable. But I've got no idea what such a
repair will do to the tone of the guitar. So keep us informed.

Looks bad, but I believe it can be fixed with some titebond glue, and a new finish on the neck..

See if it is worth it, fingers crossed smile.gif

Hello everyone,

I went to the "Luthier" today, found one that could easily fix it,

He asked for 140 euros (180 $) so It's fine, not too expensive for what it's worth!

Anyway, thanks a lot for all of you, and thank you for your support!!

PS: I'll post a song once I get my EPI, to show you how its sound!! smile.gif

Cheers

Hello everyone!!!
I got my guitar back... fixed, it has a slight ringing sound at the upper neck, but I'm glad I have it back,

Anyways, as promised here's how it sounds, I just played the second solo of Pink Floyd's Comfortably Numb!

Hope you like it (and how the guitar sounds!)

Thx again for your kind comments,

Rock on,
