How in the heck did that thing get broken that badly in shipping? Was it inside the case....if so, I would think the case would show damage as well. Personally, I would not take on a project like that (lack of skill/knowledge), but I'm sure that it could be repaired properly and refinished to look like new but it would be spendy to do so. I did re-glue (Titebond) the tuning head back onto the neck of my 12 string acoustic after it broke off and all I did was a little cleaning, gluing and clamping. It's still together and working great with very little evidence of any damage. Dumb luck, I guess!
This is a clean wide surface that should glue up fine. It’s almost like it just missed breaking from its original glue joint. I usually spline most neck breaks but I doubt that it would be really necessary here. The key is to get clamped so it doesn’t slip after being glued and getting it perfectly aligned so there are no gaps or ridges at the point of the brake after the glue dries.
That's why I'm not exactly buying into the damaged in shipping story, who puts a customized Jesus symbol on a guitar that has a broken neck like that ? That looks more like it sustained accidental damage at a church gathering ? I guess maybe it looked solid and the Jesus symbol went on it, but what are the chances the neck fails like that catastrophically playing at a church function ?Oh. You mean like maybe the guy was playing the Devils music on it and that's why it was destroyed?
