Righto, the latest in my long line of random things to look up is... broken headstocks! What I found through my Googling was a good number of people stating that a broken headstock, when properly repaired, made the guitar sound better than it did originally. This was followed by a smaller minority saying they didn't notice any real change in tone in their repaired headstock, but I didn't find anyone saying that their (properly repaired) headstock made things worse. What surprised me was, no matter what site I was on, nobody elaborated on what 'better' actually constituted. I'd imagine the glued joint could make things brighter, and I also imagine the effect could be somewhat simulated with a scarf joint (though there'd be less surface area glued as breaks are all jagged, and there'd be no splines), but this is all hypothetical, I've got no experience in this. So, for those of you that have experience with this - what changed for you? This is just curiosity speaking, I'm not about to throw my Les Paul down the stairs. I don't know if that'd break my headstock, but it'd certainly break my heart!
