Cracked neck

Recommended Posts

Even though I believe this thread has some time behind I'll add what I've found out about Gibson necks cracking.....I have been told that during the early 90's Gibson used a two way adjustable truss rod and if anyone didn't know what they were doing and made even minor adjustments they COULD crack the neck in the guitar and some even popped the finger boards loose this way. FWIW it may keep someone from doing this if they know in advance.

I just fixed a crack on an SG that sounds just like yours. If you do it correctly and carefully, you can save it. PM me if you want details. If you aren't comfortable doing it yourself, take it to a luthier...but if the crack isn't huge, you may be able to fix it yourself.
