Hi all,

Yesterday my Epiphone Les Paul fell from a height and ended up with a cracked/twisted neck like this:



My apologies for the bad picture, but is this worth repairing?

Cheers.

The pic is too small to actually seen the break.

But I would assume it is repairable. Go to the hardware store get a bottle of franklin Tite-bond original glue. put plenty of glue on/in the crack and clamp the neck really good. Leave the clamps on for at least 2 days

Agreeing it is repairable with a little glue. Make sure to get it clamped down well to avoid any nasty sharp edges.

tite-bond wood glue is best. make sure to spread open the crack and get the glue deep into the crack and clamp for 2 days. lite sanding and touch up paint and it should be good as new.

I would be a little skeptical about fixing this one by yourself, especially if you are not comfortable with working on it. The neck crack looks fixable, but the thing that Serpentine mentioned scares me as well. That fretboard to neck is what makes me think you might want to have someone who knows what they are doing look at it.

Glue it, it´ll be alright. I´ve repaired a lot of guitars that were in worse shape than that.
