Jem Neck Crack

I'm the original owner of a Jem 777VBK (bought in '90), i have a crack developing in back of the neck where the locking nut anchors are, is this a repair i can make myself or is it something that a tech should do. Is this a common problem with Jem necks? If this is a repair for a tech, how much should it cost to repair??

This guide by Rich Harris will give you an insight into what is involved, then you'll be able to make up your own mind if it is a job you can take on yourself or not:

It isn't an unheard of problem with Jem necks, but I wouldn't go so far as to say it was common.

Good luck!
