Up for sale I've got two guitars that both are in need of drastic headstock repair. How they were both destroyed was in a car wreck where the trailer containing all the gear was hit . All the electronics function fully but cosmetically they are in need of serious TLC.

I have them listed for trade because I can most likely get more for them. I'm open to a cash price as well though. looking for a wide variety of stuff throw me an offer!

First up is the worst of the two and of course it's the best guitar. It's a Jackson USA Archtop soloist with an amazing natural quilt finish. The headstock is completely severed and is missing bits and pieces of wood and binding from the neck. Nasty break that is wwwaaayyy beyond my skill to repair. Also has crack going down one side of the neck from the headstock break.

Second I have a Jackson RR5 flying V with two dings on both the corners and a headstock break as well. This one is a much cleaner break and there are only two noticable chunks of wood missing. I attempted a repair with this one but headstock repair is not my forte.

Hit me up with any and all questions!


here is link to an album with pics of both geets

That is a DAMN shame.
That soloist is beautiful.
I'd make an offer, but seeing as finances are totally dry, I can't.

Best of luck getting them repaired.

Agreed saddest day of my life.

I'm open to trades as well. Shoot me an offer, I really need to get these gone so I don't have to look at them anymore.

man i love that archtop....but i'm iffy about making an offer...i dont know if its fixable or not, and if it is it will probably be expensive. would you maybe be interested in a squire stagemaster 7 string to trade for it?

how much do you think the archtop would be to repair? it looks pretty bad. you could always get some wood glue or something to fix the rr5

I have no idea on the archtop. No one in the area has the skill or desire to fix it I just need to get em gone so I can stop looking at them
#17
I might be interested in the soloist. You said there is a crack going down the neck, is the damage just to the headstock area or do you think it affected the entire neck?

thanks for your question duke. From the pics you can see the crack going down a little bit of the neck but the neck is not affected by it. The problem is primarily to the headstock area and goes down a little bit of the neck but the entire neck is not affected.

hey parter i dont know which state you are located in but if you are in, near or willing to ship to delaware there is a luthier here named Dave sumner. he runs DS music and has been at this forever. He should be able to fix the rhoades. You may want to call him and explain you are out of state and ask him about the pic. He usually gives free estimates. as long as you explain most of it. I think he has fixed several. hell of a nice and comical guy as well.

a guy named dana also runs the place. He made the alvarez dana strum from the 1990s and that guitar won awards. they definatley know their stuff.
