Price out a Epi Zakk Wylde with broken neck

Recommended Posts

I am toying with a ZW that has a broken neck. Its a wash because the crack goes through the fret board, so a new neck is in order. The body looks in good shape, Serial checks out. What should I offer for the guitar?

Asking price is $300 OBO.

It not worth it, I would imagine a new neck fitted, finished and set up will cost around $400, it would cost around £300 here in the UK.

Your crazy to touch a LP with a broken neck like that. These are glued necks and

to remove the old one and retrofit a new neck (assuming you can even find a

matching neck/headstock..your are looking VERY COSTLY REPAIR! forget it!

There are lots of these types of EPi LPs around.

 

heres a link to a guy up here that unloaded a working one with EMG p_ups

for $300 cdn..it's SOLD but you get some idea of what these things are worth used

in working order, even without the boutique p_ups.

+1 on that. Maybe if it was $50 it might be worth the hassle' date=' but probably not even then.[/quote']

I made an offer of $50 so we'll see what he says. He send more pics and the killer break is a crack right where the neck meets the body and the finish is raised where it broke.

If he goes for the $50 I'll have one to hang on the wall...

thanks everyone for your suggestions and help
