    Now you can snap off the headstock, and some glue and paint will make it look just like original!!

    The paint-job. The fade to black eases the coverup of the spot we break headstocks.

    Meaningless to me, haven't snapped a headstock in over 49 years of playing....just sayin' ... be careful, y'all, headstocks are not fragile, it's just that guitars shouldn't be dropped/knocked over, yes??? NO ???

    OK...I was just having a bit of fun...
    The point is, that black paint on the back of the neck of the NEW guitar is exactly where most cracks occur.
    The point was, the headstock could be snapped and repaired, then the original paint scheme could be applied for an invisible repair.
    I was just funnin'.
    I, too, have been playing Gibsons and Epiphones for a long time (40 years now), and gigging them for almost as long, and I have never broken a headstock; but there's no denying it happens...a LOT.

    Totally valid point.

    I've never broken one either (knock on wood), But I've repaired several.

    They're definitely out there, and this paint scheme provides a road for dishonesty.
