So my strap kinda fell off and my guitar hit the ground hard, broke the headstock in two.

Its a jackson DK2M, and it broke right between the third and 4th tuner.
Any way to fix this? Or just get a new neck...

if it is a bolt-on, you'd probably have to have the neck replaced. if it's a neck-through.... you're more or less screwed.

You can probably glue it back together with titebond. Or have a pro do it for you.

Pictures might help us get an idea. But really you need to take it to a professional.

It's a fairly simple thing to fix, post some pictures of the break and it'd be alot better for us all here to tell you if it's fixable, which chances are, it will be.

Is there any black people on UG?
I don't think a lot of black people play guitar anymore.

That should glue right back on. I'd get it done by a pro luthier though, it looks like a bitch to clamp properly.

Looks like a fairly clean break although i couldn't see too clearly the detail of the break. Just think it could have splintered all over the place, you might just be in luck. It might be cheaper to get a new neck off the ebay tho.

The biggest difficulty I see in self-repairing it is clamping it properly for the bond to set, since it's in an odd spot.

I can see how I'd do it myself, but that requires creating a really specific jig in order to hold the pieces properly in the clamp.

I'd more likely see about getting the neck replaced or seeing the help of a pro just to save the trouble though.

I live in north west iowa, not a single luthier ANYWHERE.

Anyone know a good place to get a replacement neck...possibly a sweet maple one like this....

Order a tube of Titebond original and try to do it yourself before you just scrap a nice neck like that. You should be ashamed of just thinking about it.
Take the time to make a nice jig for it, apply glue, clamp hard for 24 hours, voila, better than new.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

That G string tuning peg might help keep it together if you decided to repair it, and you could cut out some wood blocks to make the headstock square, so to speak, then clamp that. Basically so you would have even pressure in the middle against each other. If that doesn't make sense, I shall send my whipping boy to fetch pictures for an example.

Hmm, I wish my father wasnt in the hospital. Hes realllllll good with this kinda stuff. Gay.

I might just throw the neck from my RR3 on it for now...it wont be as pretty, but it should work.


Seriously...this was THE most beautiful neck EVER.

I'd say keep playing it if its still in tune.


The remaining 3 strings you mean? Or what?

Hmm...kickass way to invent a new instrument.

All jokes aside, this happened to a Jackson I used to own as well...somehow their angled-down headstocks seem to be easy to break.

I had mine fixed by a luthier and then sold it shortly after...had to tell the guy who bought it though, cause by looking at the headstock it was impossible to tell...

Goodluck having it fixed though without a luthier near...then again, if you try and fail, at least you've tried.

Goodluck!

Take a look closely, the nut is still clamped, all 6 strings are still in, so you can still play it if its still in tune...or fine tune it if its not, see what good Floyds do?
