Grammar. It exists for a reason. [/asshole]

Anyway, I'm pretty sure this is a fairly common repair on some Gibsons, so if it sounds right, stays in tune and the repair seems solid, I'd think it could work. Jimi Hendrix(Or was it Pete Townshend? One of those two) used to put his smashed guitars back together and get them repainted to use again I read in an interview, if putting an entire guitar back together doesn't ruin things I don't think the head joint will.

Ya it pretty much happenes all the time. Its not replaceable so it would have had to be fixed.

Just be carefull, I could be totally wrong but wasnt the 90s kind of a crappy decade for Gibson?

My first guitar still has residue from an unfortunate ranch dressing incident

Quite the opposite good sir! If the opinions of all my friends who own early '90s Gibsons are of any worth, it is considered somewhat of a goden age, with relatively consistent products coming out.

I say jump on it! You'll most likely get a great player for a very low price, seeing as no matter how strong the headstock repair is, it still decreases price significantly!

No, the '90s was a great decade for Gibson. I don't really know if gibson had a bad decade as far as the guitars go, although they had some major quality control issues in the '60s, and the '70s and early '80s guitars were constructed very differently which offers a different sound and feel that you either love or hate (les paul himself loves the '70s les pauls because les paul disapproves of natural resonance in his guitars!)

but yeah, les paul headstocks break so easily that you're almost guaranteed to find at least one with a repaired headstock at some point! even the norlin era models had the problem despite their efforts to strengthen the necks by making them 3-piece with a volute.
I like analogue Solid State amps that make no effort to be "tube-like", and I'm proud of it...

...A little too proud, to be honest.
