brand new 2019 standard that got a headstock break in shipping. Dead mint otherwise $1500 shipped. Worth it? Repair looks wonderful.

What say ye?

Current Standard is $2500.

Half of that is $1250.

If it's the guitar you were gonna buy anyway, and not just something you're looking for a reason to justify, I'd say it's not a bad deal.

IMHO, FWIW, etc...

Yeah its just a justification. Its a 60s and i am a 50s neck guy so i think ill pass
A beefy old 50s neck probably wouldn't have snapped and you'd not even be in this tricky situation in the first place, so, erm, there's that!

Not even close. $1000 tops. Too many nice Trads out there in the sub $1500 range.

i got a 2020 lp 50s for 1699 slightly used from a major vendor. Id pass on any headstock issue guitars, especially at that price
