So my mum accidently nudged my schetcer hellraiser and it fell off its stand and hit the corner of my heater. I did not at all expect it to snap the headstock :S What should i do? Take it to repairs guy or speak to the store i bought it from to see if they have any sympathy for me?

Depending on how it's broken, you might be able to fix it yourself. I knew a guy who's strap broke and just enough of the headstock broke off to take the 1st string tuning peg off. He fixed it with super glue and it was good as new since the part of the string at acutally plays was unaffected

since ur moms paying for it make sure that the guy knos you want the whole fix up package, this is a common problem, happened to my les paul twice but for around $200 or so depending on whos doing it you can make it look brand new like nuthin ever happened

Super glue is a pretty bad idea to use for wood. They make "wood glue" for a reason. Super glue is pretty brittle and if you're gluing something like wood, it can easily come apart again. Wood glue is a bit tacky, and bonds not only with the surface of the wood (like super glue would) but also penetrates for a bond stronger than wood itself. The tackiness of the glue also allows for a little bit of give so it isn't so brittle. If you wood glued a piece of wood back together and tried to break it again, it would break at a new point because the wood glue is so strong.

How old is your guitar?

I got a warranty through Guitar Center + Schecter for like $30 when I bought my guitar and for four years they'll repair or replace anything that happens to the guitar, free of charge.

Gorilla Glue. Though you may want to get a professional to repair it, if you do it yourself, that stuff should work.

Man, for $350 it's seriously not worth it. Buy a new neck (if it's bolt-on).

My advice would be:

1) Firstly try to get it on warranty if you can. Some places are really sound about this sort of thing and this really isn't an uncommon problem. They will either repair it, replace the neck or trade the guitar.

2) Take it to a luthier and get him to repair it.

3) New guitar. (and keep the broken one and repair it later)
