Damn it! I was hoping to see my first.
Troll post? No neck repairs because a replacement neck is cheaper.
Only in trash can.... the neck that is.
The two I could find amongst the many Gibsons…
But I have to say, I saw a Telecaster headstock breaking accidentally on a wall. I still don't know why I didn't play the lottery straight away after that… Stupid me, I could be a millionaire by now.
**Edit** ooh! Headstock repair…
The name of this forum is My Les Paul.
I saw one once. I tried to take a picture, but my camera was too slow to catch it
Broken maple burns well in a fireplace.
I broke a Tele headstock along the grain right where the low E tuning machine hole is. Took the chunk of wood on the upper side of that hole right off.
Stevie Ray's #1 comes to mind.
Didn't fall and break, though. It was obliterrated by a falling stage light.
I heard that Fender duplicated the break and repair on some of the CS signature models.
Thats actually pretty impressive. Try to do that with a Les Paul style neck and it would snap like a twig before you got both feet on it.
Comes down to headstock angle. The Fender style necks are basically a straight plank of wood, cut straight, with the grain running all the way through. A Gibson style neck has the steep angle, and the grain gets cut short, so its inherently weaker.
Guess the solution is, just dont stand on your Gibson neck lol
Heard that too.
But I saw one in-person, and the "break" looked fake/painted on. Just like the rest of the "wear".
I always wondered about that.
The wear is all painted on. For a $25K+ "replica", that's pretty flakey.
Painted on relic? Like instead of just sanding through the paint to the wood to mimic wear, they just painted over the paint to look like its worn to wood? Thats incredibly shady, considering thats probably not a guitar you can just walk into a store and pick one off the rack and inspect in person. I would be pissed about that on an $800 Mexican Roadworn, nevermind a $25k custom shop replica of a famous guitar.
Wrong part of the forum
This way -> http://www.mylespaul.com/forum/fender.27/
Don't search for the Joe Strummer Tele sig then. The finish is like a giant sticker replicating the wear of the original . I could literally stretch it . Utter disappointment.
At least you get actual paint here .
