Can this be fixed with a little glue? *Warning Explicit Pics*

This was one of my Les Pauls that had a little accident with a concrete floor. A couple months ago. Long story short it was a freak accident. I was a little depressed for awhile. I really enjoyed that guitar....

Here's one of my guys (Greg) holding up the pieces...

Oh my god!! that sucks!!! Did it break the neck at all? If not, you might be able to glue and clamp the body back together, although I doubt you'll ever be able to hid the glue line. RELIC!!!!!!

Well, I'm no luthier, but I know how to fix shit.

Here's what you'll need.....

Duct Tape and Elmer's Glue

A freak accident with a concrete floor? Was there a 100 story fall before it hit the concrete floor?

Dripping with Mojo! Glue it back together, then leave it be, don't even try to hide the break. You can rebuild her. You can make her better than she was before. Better...Stronger....LOUDER!!!!!! The ultimate gigging guitar!! You wouldn't have to worry about scuffin' it!

Don't bother with glue. Drill 4 holes in the top, route out a control cavity on the upper, remaining section of body, mount the electrics and put everything back on. It'd certainly be a talking point.............:rofl:

That's what we were thinking on doing. It would definately be a head turner. the neck board has a little damage but not to bad.

BCR, nice seeing ya here, I believe we talked about our mutual friend Steve Conti one day about a year ago.

Okay, WB, just what DID happen to that baby, it looks violent as hell cause it's such a sharp snap in two in between the layers?
