It's my beloved SG. It fell off a crappy First Act stand at the beginning of the summer.
I think I already know the answer.

The headstock is almost completely broken off. Wood glue and rubber bands anyone?

Either rubber bands or a clamp should work. Just sand it smooth and refinish (if you can) and it should be good.

this + wood glue.

Is it a problem that the two pieces don't sit flush on one another?
P.S. I didn't bring the stand with me when I went to college.

im by no means at pro at this, but if the pieces fit back together well then you are lucky that crack went pretty well.

thats a pretty good location and angle for the crack, lots of surface area to glue

very easy to clamp and glue, use a C clamp, not a quick clamp.

Hmmm.

Clamp it shut first.

Then cover, the front of the headstock in masking tape, a couple of layers.

Remove your clamps hinge it back to FINISH the break.

Now apply Tightbond (not that horrible resin crap in the other pic).

Clamp it back together straight and leave it overnight.

It should now just need filling and refinishing.

There is a tutorial on Project Guitar.

Duct tape could work...
Duct Tape! For all of your needs!

I once saw this red green episode where they made a hummer by duct-taping two cars together! Lol!

Make sure to get a new stand, Hercules is the best with their patented locking auto-grab system.

Don't do the duct tape thing...
