Repairing a Broken Headstock

This is probably the worst thing that can happen to any guitar, to be honest it’s probably harder on the guitarist but still it makes for a pretty gruesome picture. In this case the break wasn’t completely clean and a small peace of wood had broken loose, not visible on this image I’m afraid. The headstock veneer was holding the whole thing together so no need for the (as yet unfinished) headstock repair jig, I just needed to clamp and glue the guitar back together. The customer wasn’t interested in an visible repair but the final result worked out quite well in my opinion. Please head to the workshop area of the site to see more pictures of this job and other guitar setups and repairs that I’ve completed.
