Yes I did mean corpse when I wrote the title.
So my guitar (G400) got royally FUBARed, and the only way of reparing is getting a whole new neck glued on. And that's basically as much as a new guitar. And I'd rather get a new one. So my question is - the headstock is broken behind the nut, but the rest of the guitar, is still nearly mint. Is it possible to sell it somehow - like putting it up on eBay or something? Would anyone even want that?

I was planning on just putting it us as broken, for a third of the price of the guitar, and seeing if anyone will buy it. Is that resonable?

Heck, most people here - especially those in GB&C would buy it.

You could either sell it as it is- broken
or sell it as a neck and body blank, and then sell the electrics separately.

or you could get a new neck.

I would probably buy it if I had any cash.

Not a massively hard fix usually..

I'd say you should disconnect the neck (how you'd do this with an epi I don't know, they epoxy their necks in IIRC) and sell the body.
Current Gear:
LTD MH-400 with Gotoh GE1996T (EMG 85/60)

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

It's a set neck, so building and gluing a new one on is pointless, since it will cost as much as the guitar new.

When I broke the headstock off my guitar. I just sold the pickups. I still have the body and headstock. I never expected anyone to buy a broken Epi.

you'd be amazed at what can be fixed - - guys that know what they're doing can fix almost any smashed guitar.
