firstly: not sure if this is the right forum for this

but on topic

ive got a epiphone les paul standard plus, and a while back my friend knocked it off its stand and it feel into my bookcase cracking the neck and headstock. now this doesnt look too bad but it goes right thro the neck ie its split it (hard to explain)

anywho, how would i go about fixing this? the same thing happened to said frineds maverick (sweet ass guitar btw), and he just poured a ****load of glue in and clamped it up. should i do the same or wat?

and its a set neck so dont bother with 'buy a new neck'

tl;dr : how do i fix a cracked neck?

cheers

EDIT: if you want pics ill upload

Upload the pics.
Usually, it can be glued and clamped. From what I've seen, breaks like these will be pretty clean (meaning there's no splintering or pieces that break away on their own) so the gluing will be easy. Oh, and not just any glue should be used. Titebond is the tried, tested and preferred product for this. It can be found in any hardware store.

This may go in the Guitar Building and Customizing forum..

pics please. You should be able to glue it and clamp it overnight but if your not confident take it to your llocal guitar tech and they should do it for cheap.
