I picked this up at a market today
as you can see the headstock has broken and suffered a very bad repair it seems solid enough as is.
I would like to build up the back of the neck and then take this hideous peice of wood off covering truss rod or replace it with something better.

it looks like screws have been put in to top wooden piece,  is it a 1984 model

The good neck is straight, frets and electronis are good

I would have left it there. That is terrible.

I would give it some Penicillin cause it looks infected.

I'm thinking termites. Strip for parts and bury the rest. 

Sorry I can't be more helpful, but that thing looks like a health hazard 😕
