So I just knocked over and busted my Les Paul Studio. By busted, I mean I split the head (right behind the "studio" nameplate by the tuners). Anyways, I am going to get it repaired as I have not the know-how but was just wondering, are Studios a 1-piece neck, meaning I could just get a new headstock, or will it cost me a new neck? And also, just to be a bother, could anyone give a price estimate on that? If anyone understood my rambling, thanks!

Huh? I don't get what you're saying here. They just glue the piece you broke off back on.

Gibbies are one piece necks methinks.

NOt sure about how many peices, but i do know that Les Pauls have set necks. You are going to have to contact a Luthier(sp?)

that sucks, but a good luthier should be able to glue it back on really well

Ouch you poor bugger. I'm always worried about that on my SG. But do what the others said, and you'll be set. The moolah you spend will b e worth it. Also who knows, I believe Slash a long with other greats have done the same thing, and their techs fixed it, and now it plays even better, so you might find this to be a great thing

In any case, good luck mate.

The paddle of the headstock is actually separate from the rest of the neck, so it'll just be a reglue.

At least, the headstock itself on my LP is that way.

This has already been said, but take it to a good luthier and you'll be absolutely fine.
