Re: JS100 Broken neck...

Do you have a photo? If it is really not repairable as they say, you may have to keep looking at the auction site. i know there's a seller in US that sells them from time to time, but I don't know if they ship internationally.

Re: JS100 Broken neck...

About 20 years ago, I stepped on my guitar neck by the nut and broke it just about clean through by accident.. (don't leave your guitars on the floor and get home late at night.. bad things happen lol)... So for 20 years it was 2 pieces.. headstock and neck.. fastforward to a few months ago, my buddy who is quite handy and great at working on guitars used some titebond and some clamps and boom good as new!! I would say as long as fretboard is not cracked you got a good chance. It is my main guitar for gigs, and practice and has already withstood winter and summer, cold transports and hot humid practices in a basement. I'm sure I have pics of the repair. As long as the neck and headstock can "join" sight unseen I think it can be fixed, even if some small shards are missing, they can be filled as well. To me it's more of a wood working job than a guitar tech job. But with under $10 at the hardware store you can get the right glue(I can find out what my buddy used) and some patience as the clamps do their thing you could be alright!!! Let me know if I can help!! Maybe my bud could even fix it for ya....

Re: JS100 Broken neck...

Im having trouble uploading the image of the repair... SO I posted a tweet on twitter with 2 pics, back and front... my twitter is @Ibrknthanez you shouldn't need a account, just google it and it should come up, I don't tweet a lot so those pics should be easy to find

Hi KissTheApex and Ibrknthanez! thanks for the prompt response... i was'nt able to take pictures but it actually broke at the same spot as that of Ibrknthanez's guitar. Looking at your pictures on twitter gave me hope... thanks!
A friend of mine knows someone that repairs guitars so i went there and ask to repair it though he gave me no guarantee that it will hold, i asked him to do it... thanks Ibrknthanez for offering a hand... really appreciate it!!! Thanks KissTheApex will still keep on looking at auction sites for a replacement though... if the price is right... Thanks guys! God bless!!! will upload pictures when it is finished... thanks!!!

Re: JS100 Broken neck...

Im super glad that gave you some hope!!! I spoke to my friend for some updated details...heres what he said...Regular original titebond wood glue is what was used to repair..my friend said that is what you wanna use. He used large ratchet ties.through the holes of the nut holes and holes that he took off the tuners to use. that was how he clamped it..he let it sit like that for two days,and then let it sit another 2 days after taking the clamps off.I'm super happy with mine...wouldn't replace it...not as pretty as it was...but works great!!! The neck had a lot of sentimental value to the neck....so happy it works again!!! Best of luck!!!
