So, my friend plays a sweet ass American G&L ASAT (basically a Tele for people who are unfamiliar), but he broke it at our show the other night.

Like, he wrecked the thing  I told him we might be able to fix it ourselves, but I actually have no idea. Here is the damage. Brace yourselves. Any hope?

Clamps and wood glue. I might pre-drill and run a couple of long deck screws in to mechanically bind the 2 pieces, good to go!  Now he will have a proper road worn punker axe.

All you'd need is some paint and to re-install the strap pegs.

Why, yes, I am a lawyer- thanks for asking!

Log off and play yer guitar!

Strap on, tune up, rock out!

I'd use biscuits instead of screws.

I also would likely do that. - From the top the top edge of the body, and countersunk so that I could disguise the screw holes in some way. The I might opt to "put a sign in front of it", something like those butterfly ties (I don't know their proper name) that the Japanese use to tie a butt joint together.

+1  Biscuits or dowels with wood glue or hide glue. Screws are a horrible way to repair fine wood items.
