Is this fixable?

Post by stpetecubby on Sat Mar 19, 2011 10:02 pm

Not sure if I posted this link correctly, but...

I would bid on this in a heartbeat, BUT it has a crack in the headstock. The body looks like its in great shape. What do you guys think?

Looks in good condition to me.
That crack is a relatively minor problem which can be repaired without too much hassle. The repair however would likely entail opening it up (breaking it) then re-gluing. The resultant bond would be stronger than the wood and not cause any future trouble.
I wouldn't let that stop you!

I agree with Barry. Easy fix, unusual, but an easy fix.

I have a Genesis II and the neck is to die for. Fast, oiled and well designed. Go for it !

God, yes!! That's easy... those headstocks are made from 3 pieces and that bit is the smallest and least loadbearing so not a major at all; excellent price!! Very Happy

Great wee guitar, too; I've got one and rate it very highly indeed; as Steve said, one of the best necks you'll ever play!!
