I see on ebay all the time, guitars that have set necks but are cracked. Can the necks be replaced? If so how do you do it? I do see used necks all the time too. I know probably a noob question but so what i want to know.
you could probably cut out the spot where the neck was glued in if youre lucky.
probably cost alot and you might damage it.

It's possible, but it's a lot of work. Depending on the glue used, you may be able to steam it out, or that may not be possible. If that's the case, then you'd have to pull the fretboard, cut the neck off at the body and re-route the mortise.

'Aim at perfection in everything, though in most things it is unattainable. However, they who aim at it, and persevere, will come much nearer to it than those whose despondency and laziness make them give it up as unattainable.'
ok sounds like it is a bit of work but can be done if i am VERY careful. NOt sure if i want to do it or not. I see lots of EPI Les Pauls with damaged necks CHEAP. I also see some people selling the necks too. Just thinking of it as a possible project.

chris, now explan to him what the mortise is.
would that be the cut out in the body for the neck?
