Here's my 1 step process:
1. Take it to a guitar store to get fixed.

I wouldn't even attempt to fix that. It's best left in the hand of a professional.

Wood glue and screws. BUT take it to a shop so they can set it properly.

Yeah, I agree with wood glue, but I'd be careful. That headstocks gonna be taking a lot of stress from the strings when its all set up again. If I were you, I'd definately get it done professionally, the last thing I'd want is for my headstock to crack off in the middle of playing and to have ended up wasting my time with it. So, good luck brother, that's quite a problem you got there.

i read somewhere here that wood glue, which has been clamped for a week or more will do the trick, id then refinish that part of the neck for extra strength

It doesn't look like a clean break, it looks quite rough so that might effect how it will glue.

im intrigued, how exactly did that happen o.O?


Same thing happened to a guitar of mine a while ago, dog ran into it, and when it fell down it just fell down face first and the head stock snapped.

Yeah I don't keep my guitars anywhere near the dog now hehe

Could you get pictures of the break closer up?

Do not use epoxy. Epoxy is bad for vibrations. Super glue is just the same.

Wood glue is what you want. Preferably Titebond. The rough break will give the glued surface more surface area, which will help the glued surface stay together.

Make sure you clamp it very, very well. Use scrap wood to protect the guitar's wood from the pressure of the clamps. Also, remember that glued wood is stronger than regular wood.

Thats how I do it. If you do a good job gluing it together it'll be stronger than it was to begin with.


Don't use screws like somebody else sugested. That will ruin your guitar.
