It's not unrepairable, but.... Might be around the 200 mark for a good tech to repair it and the finish. Is it worth it? Depends on how you feel about the guitar pre break.

Hang it up for the girl friend to see.

Then in casual conversation just mention that you loved that guitar, but it pissed you off too many times.

For the price of getting the neck replaced.... buy a new guitar.

OP I'm not what that repair might cost, but others are saying that for the cost, it may be worth it to get a new guitar. If it has sentimental value, it may be worth it - to you - to get it fixed. I've seen worse.

I couldn't help you with a repairman, but a competent luthier should be able to re-glue the neck, then fill the finish cracks and have it looking pretty good. The more cosmetically perfect, the more the repair will cost.

Part out electronics pr sell unit as replacement part donor

The crack IMO makes it basically worthless

Ask yourself, after the cash to repair, say wild guess minimum $199 + respray minimum $100 would you be happy with the guitar or would it bother you every time you looked or played it.

That neck is shattered. That's a very expensive repair bill. Get a new guitar.
