broken headstock repair
I picked up an epiphone LP POS with broken headstock to try out a repair on it.
The headstock broke off fairly clean.
You can push it right back on where it was. no splinters getting in the way.
if you look at the fracture from the side, it is faily straight. meaning No large splinter pieces to get overlap on. Just a clean break right on the nut.
I have read my books on doing this repair, however it does not say what glue to use. It list several used on various repairs... Wood, white, super glue, epoxy... etc...
I have my sights on wood glue or super glue.
Super glue has worked well for me on many repairs... But I have not tried it on headstocks. PLus it gets tacky and grabs on pretty good.
Anyone have any insight for me?
Side note. I have no interest in taking this to be repaired. I purchased it broken to do the repair myself. I have plenty of other guitars to play, so no big deal trying it out.
I have done tons of mods to several of them (installed tremelos, led fret markers etc) as well, so this would not be exactly a new project. it is just my first broken headstock.
I also have a wall of lower end guitars (18 of them) hanging much like in a music store. is there anything I can do, so I can hang this guitar from the wall and not worry about it falling off? I almost wish there was a large splinter of overlap so I could install a tiny dowel rod into it so it had some sort of physical connection besides just glue.
Anyhow, First post here, just signed up. Thanks!
