Right, just been talking to one of my mates over IM, and she mentioned that she has managed to break the bass she borrowed from a friend...Apparently, the screws have come out of the neck, the neck has come out of the body and the neck is now in two halves...can she fix it? or is it broken for good?

well if its JUST the neck that has actual damage to it, then you can just buy a replacement neck.

I don't really understand what she means by "in half"...apparently only the screws have come out, and it looks fixable - but she doesn't know where to start

^ just detatched, the fretboard is still attatched, but apparently half of the back of the neck is attatched and half not...i'm still trying to establish whether or not these halves are still joined together

I'm a guitarist by trade and don't know much about the construction of basses so i can't really help much

the construction of guitars and basses in this situation is very simliar. we're just dealing with necks here.

ask for pics and send us some if you can.

her mum's gone out and taken the camera already thought of that...apparently she's started screwing it back on, and it looks like it's going to be ok

Edit: Done

Edit 2: Apparently it works fine now (albeit out of tune) and the person it was borrowed from will never know

What I don't understand is how it came unscrewed. Was she dicking around with it or are the screws stripped?

apparently she was just playing it and it fell apart...i don't know, she's a girl - she doesn't know what she's doing and therefore we should just leave her to it really

I'm surprised the neck didn't fly off from the string tension and slap her in the face.

Yea I was thinking. How does a neck just..fall off?
Sounds like it would shoot off like a slingshot and hurt someone.
