That would be a pretty fun guitar to mess around with if you could get it for cheap.

I was just looking at a Studio with a hideous headstock repair, yesterday. I thought to myself "It's too bad there are never any busted bodies with good necks on them for sale."

That said, the two together would probably run at least $700 and I can buy one that isn't busted at all for a little more.

That said, it would be a fun learning experience. I have never removed or installed a set neck.

To me, it looks like one of those "Try fixing it just because" projects that may actually turn out ok.

Need to see the headstock though.

What else was damaged in that neck joint break?

I see the tail end of the guitar is conveniently out of the photo. That's probably the end that hit the stage when it was smashed overhand.

looks like someone swung it like baseball bat ......and connected with something that didnt move and the batter had pretty strong arms and wrists that followed thru the swing....my guess

if its a Gibson Studio with all the parts and a case, it would be a fun $250 project
