Alright, I'm assuming this is the best place for this so...

I was browsing my local craigslist when I came accross this ad:
http://grandrapids.craigslist.org/msg/1328371972.html

An Epi Les Paul Custom with a broken headstock for $75, would it be worth it to buy and attempt to fix, or is it a lost cause?

Also If I did get it, how easy would it be to fix, how much would it cost, could someone give me a good walkthrough, etc?

wood glue is stronger than wood, so yes, it will if done right.

I wouldn't spend $75 on an epi in perfect condition... but that's just because I hate Epis.

It's not a difficult fix. I would use Titebond original and a couple horizontal dowels for reinforcement. If you check the resource sticky, I think there is a link to a headstock/neck repair tutorial.

Go for it. looks like it should be an easy fix as it appears to be a clean break.
