i woke up this morning, ready to play guitar, and my gibson les paul jr was on the floor, i inspected it, and it seemed normal, but it was out of tune, so i tuned it, and as soon as i tried to play a chord, it was out of tune, so i tuned it again, and while tuning the d string, i heard a crackling sound coming from the back of the headstock, and there is a huge crack, so i cant play it anymore =[

what should i do, get it fixed, or get a new guitar?


Edit: should i get it fixed, or save up money and customize a Fender strat body i have lying around

this it it:





yes, the neck is fretless

Sorry to break this to you, but you "hardcore" fans don't HAVE mosh pits.

Somewhere there is an ass that needs to be kicked.

And don't trust Guitar Center employees.
I sued Delta Airlines, 'cause they sold me a ticket to New Jersey, I went there, and it SUCKED.

I got a completely broken off headstock fixed for 70$
A crack is probably less.

Buy both pickups. Rub icyhot on both of them. Sandwich your penis between them and walk to the nearest homeless shelter with your brand new icyhot penis sandwich.

yeah, my first ever guitar fell off of it's stand one too many times. usually it was because of my dad or brothers bumping it and it would fall. the fateful fall was because i set it on the stand but it didnt balance right so i walked away and heard it fall. neck broke off mainly at the glue, but some wood did break.
